Liberal Twitter had a lot to say about the special election in Georgia on Tuesday night.
And they weren’t happy.

A very strong effort by Jon @Ossoff in #GA06 today. #TeamOssoff and all the voters and activists there should be proud. Onward to 2018.

Best thing that could come out of the #GA06 results is for Democratic Party to finally give up its self-destructive obsession with centrism

Jon @Ossoff came within 5% in a district that elected @SecPriceMD by 23% 7 months ago. We won’t stop fighting for women. #GA06

Beyond proud of the campaigns Jon @Ossoff & @Archie4Congress ran. You both make me proud to be a Democrat & even more committed to fighting.

In the wake of Jon Ossoff’s loss, maybe it’s time for Democrats to develop a substantive agenda? https://t.co/7GSHUjKDp2

Republicans gained literally nothing in #GA06 election. They are losing tons of voters in every special election and calling them wins. Sad!

And then there were those on the far-left who were outright angry with Democrats and the establishment after another loss:
Congratulations to Dem consultants and operatives who continue to rake in generous fees despite a proven track record of failure! #GA06

Will #Ossoff‘s loss FINALLY show establishment they have to run FOR ideas (single payer, free college, tax hikes) rather than Trump=bad? NAH

Fear doesn’t mobilize Dems. Ideas do. That’s what the pros say.

At least Jon Ossoff showed some grace amid his defeat.
It's extraordinary what this community has achieved — an unprecedented grassroots effort. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
