EXCERPT:

RUHLE: “But, Jon, since the special election where you were at 48.1 percent, things have only moved to 48.8 percent with 50 million bucks under your belt. Voters care about a lot. If you look back on this and things are that tight, wouldn’t you say to yourself, ‘Just get an apartment in the district, this race counts so much?’”
OSSOFF: “Well, if voters were raising that as a serious concern, Steph, maybe I would. But voters care about how policy and how representation is going to impact their daily lives. They know I grew up in this community, they know I grew up in the sixth district, they know why I’m a couple miles south of the line. It’s not a major issue in the race. I’m focused on delivering representation that will serve our local economy, that will serve the daily needs of the people I hope to represent and I’m offering a fresh voice to bring that kind of service to the sixth district.”
