Ossoff has never actually won an election. So what sort of advice will he give the residents of the GOS?
LEAVING IT ALL ON THE FIELD: THE MIDTERM ELECTIONS IN THE RESISTANCE ERA
Leaving it all on the field. You know. Like the Nazis at Stalingrad, the Texans at the Alamo, and Custer at Little Big Horn.
Prediction time: the panelist will ultimately reach the conclusion that they aren't doing anything wrong, they only need better messaging.

I've never been to Netroots, and I doubt I ever will go, but this is what I expect from it.
Toward the end of the first panel I attended, one audience member censured another for failing to recognize his privilege during a question-and-answer session. The crowd cheered in approval. "Your privilege is showing," the man said in a reprimand from the microphone, scolding his peer with disgust.
Just think of how much virtue you can signal at Netroots.
