Republican Rep Karen Handel, who defeated Democrat Jon Ossoff in a contentious special election in Georgia's 6th congressional district last year, lost her seat to Lucy McBath, who was one of the Black Lives Matter moms who spoke at the Democratic National Convention in 2016.
McBath gave her speech in support of Hillary Clinton while being flanked by Michael Brown's mother Lezley McSpadden, Trayvon Martin's mother Sybrina Fulton, Sandra Bland's mother Geneva Reed-Veal and others.

More from Vox:
McBath won her primary runoff earlier this year, but national coverage of her race initially paled in comparison to that of Jon Ossoff. In 2017, he ran against Handel, a former Georgia secretary of state, in a special election to replace previous Rep. Tom Price. While local and national Democrats focused on Ossoff's campaign as a referendum on Trump, that message was not enough to put him over the top in Georgia.Follow InformationLiberation on Twitter, Facebook, Gab and Minds.
