Georgia run-off sets test for Trump, and Democrats

Georgia run-off sets test for Trump, and Democrats

"It is now Hollywood vs. Georgia on June 20th", Trump tweeted.

Democratic candidate Jon Ossoff tried to make the Georgia special election all about President Donald Trump but didn't fare much better than former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton did in 2016.

However, winning the June 20 run-off election will be tougher for Mr Ossoff.

As for whether Trump will campaign with Handel, Spicer said: "We'll see if we're needed".

In comparison, Handel reportedly raised just $463,000.

Pundits said Mrs Handel will likely win the run-off, but on Tuesday the Republican said in an interview with the Atlanta Journal Constitution: "Beating Ossoff and holding this seat is something that rises above any one person".

O'Reilly and enrich themselves through publicity-driven donations". "Some are calling it the politics of sexual harassment". Seeing O'Reilly lose his job because of actions against women felt very cathartic, she said.

Ossoff, a former congressional staffer and documentary filmmaker, ran on a pledge to "Make Trump Furious".

An Ossoff win would not tip the balance of power in Washington, where Republicans control the White House and both chambers of Congress.

Republicans, get out and vote! He has also mobilized strong opposition against President Trump.

"This is a Republican district but it is not a strongly Trump district", House Republican Tom Cole said of the sixth district, home to many well-educated voters who are reliably Republican but frustrated by the new president. Through phone, email contacts, and social media, National Right to Life Victory Fund reached out to identified pro-life households in the district encouraging them to vote against Jon Ossoff, who supports a policy of abortion on demand, and supports using tax dollars to pay for abortion. The Dunwoody retiree and Handel volunteer says Republicans were too cautious in the primary for fear they'd "step on toes".

DuBose Porter, chairman of the Georgia Democratic Party, said the district offers the flawless setting for Democrats to prove their momentum heading into 2018. "No, they lost!" Spicer said. "We have defied the odds. shattered expectations", Ossoff told supporters, adding that they'd "carry us to victory" in June.

The victor replaces Republican Tom Price, who stepped down to serve as Mr Trump's Secretary of Health and Human Services.
