Ossoff Wins Plurality In Georgia Special Election, Teeing Up Runoff With GOPer

Republicans had to spend millions of dollars to keep Ossoff from an outright win in spite of a crowded field that made it hard for anyone to come close to 50%.

Here's the takeaway from Tuesday's special election in Georgia's Sixth Congressional District: Democrats and Republicans have reasons to be concerned. Republicans are bidding to prevent a major upset in a conservative Geor.

Ossoff, also a former congressional staffer, drew endorsements from the national party and from veteran Georgia Congress members, including the civil rights giant Rep. John Lewis, D-Ga., for whom Ossoff once interned. Georgia's 6th District has elected Republicans to the House since the late 1970s. And that's a big contrast to the Democrat who doesn't even live in the district.

"Jon Ossoff is in a strong position to become the first Democrat to represent the Georgia 6in almost 40 years".

He published a similar message last week, after Republicans were forced to scramble to win a congressional special election in a ruby-red Kansas district.

Republican donations likely will begin to pour in for the runoff, now that one of the eleven Republican candidates in the race will go up against Ossoff in the June 20 runoff.

"And there is no amount of dark money, super-PAC negative advertising that can overcome real grassroots energy like this", said the man who raised more than $8 million, much of it from anti-Trump activists from out of state, press reports said.

A state senate race is also headed to a run-off vote.

President Donald Trump gave himself some credit for forcing a runoff in a special election in Georgia on Tuesday, saying he was "glad to be of help" after Democrat Jon Ossoff failed to win 50% of the vote.

Trump happily congratulated Republicans in a tweet chiding the media and the support streaming into Georgia from other states. Great job Karen Handel!

More tests await in the weeks to come, with special elections approaching in Montana and SC in May and June.

DuBose Porter, chairman of the Georgia Democratic Party, said the district offers the ideal setting for Democrats to prove their momentum heading into 2018.

"I think the president is going to do everything he can to maintain majorities and further the party", said Spicer.

"We have a lot of wind at our back".

The victor will succeed Republican Tom Price, who resigned the seat to join Trump's administration as health secretary. She's had a shaky record as a fundraiser, and hasn't won an election since 2006.

"We will unite, and this seat will be held in the hand of a Republican come June 20".

"This is already a remarkable victory", Ossoff, a 30-year-old former congressional aide and documentary filmmaker, said in a statement. Most candidates who run form office want to win, that's generally a given.

Republicans say they could beat Ossoff in a one-on-one contest.
