Georgia run-off sets test for Trump, and Democrats


While Ossoff ended up as the top vote-getter in a crowded field of 18 candidates vying to fill the seat left vacant by Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price, he ended up short of the votes needed to win the seat outright.

Last week in Kansas, a Democrat came within seven points of winning the race for CIA Director Mike Pompeo's old seat, in a district that Trump won by 27 points in November.

DUNWOODY, Ga. (AP) - A narrow miss by a Democratic newcomer in a conservative Georgia House district has triggered a high-stakes runoff that could test President Donald Trump's influence and the limits of the backlash against him.

Trump earned the lowest percentage of votes compared to any other Republican presidential candidate in recent history with 48.3 percent.

Firefighter dies after fall in Queens
A New York City firefighter died Thursday after he fell several stories while battling a blaze in the borough of Queens. Tolley fell from the roof about 20 minutes later. "The circumstances of the fall are under investigation", Nigro said.

When asked whether Spicer was concerned that "Ossoff came so close to 50 percent", Spicer said, "Well, again, I would - just looking at the facts, there was one candidate on the Democratic side. We have defied the odds, we have shattered expectations", Mr Ossoff told a cheering crowd of supporters.

Trump apparently called Handel Wednesday morning to congratulate her, according to a muted tweet she sent out. Trump himself targeted Ossoff with robocalls and a barrage of Twitter messages.

But among Democrats, there is optimism that Ossoff's campaign may provide a blueprint for future races, with midterm elections coming up next year. Mr. Ossoff now goes to a June 20 runoff.

Republican Karen Handel, a former Georgia secretary of state, lagged in a distant second, qualifying her for the runoff. "It is now Hollywood vs. Georgia on June 20th". Or do they divert resources to the May 25 special election for a House seat in Montana-a state that actually elects Democrats?

Atletico, meanwhile, brought Leicester City's fairytale to an end, beating the Premier League champions 2-1 on aggregate. Fans got more than a little choked up at the show of solidarity and at their subsequent interchange on Instagram.

"The reaction has been that they nearly won - no, they lost", Mr Spicer insisted.

"[She used] our tax dollars to pay for her luxury SUV then jetted around on our dime", the ad says of Handel's tenure as Georgia's secretary of state".

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

"If you run as a Democrat, you're a Democrat", Sanders said. And that could have mixed results for the Republican candidate.
