Republican Karen Handel beat Democrat Jon Ossoff to win the 6th Congressional District special election Tuesday in Georgia. The race had been hyped by Democrats as a signal ahead of the 2018 midterm elections and a chance to rebuke President Donald Trump.

The election was the most expensive House race in history, with the candidates together spending more than $50 million. Online donors poured $23 million into Ossoff’s campaign, many of them donors that were also giving money to “nominee funds” for Democrats in Republican-held districts, Politico reported.

The Ossoff-Handel race showed that money isn't the determining factor anymore in elections, Glenn Beck asserted on Wednesday’s “The Glenn Beck Radio Program.”

Ossoff drew massive out-of-state support, but millions in funding couldn’t buy him the election. Stu Burguiere compared his race to the 2016 presidential election and then-Republican nominee Donald Trump’s relatively low funding; he was far outspent by the Hillary Clinton campaign.

“I think we are so aware of the games that are played we just don’t believe it anymore,” Glenn said.
