Republicans are bidding to prevent a major upset in a conservative Geor.

Although the Georgia race has received the most attention, it's not the only special House election to make waves this year.

He slammed Republicans for their "dark money" and negative ads - Handel countered that most his funding came from outside the district, and reprised criticism that Ossoff doesn't even live in the Sixth District. 50 percent was needed to avoid a runoff, so Ossoff will face Republican Karen Handel on June 20.

Republican backlash against Trump in November led to closer-than-expected presidential results in the district.

Trump became involved with the Georgia election, including making robocalls and tweeting, and McDaniel said she'd like to see him remain involved in all of the special elections.

HANDEL: I - I would hope so. "We're united behind me, and I absolutely am confident that Republicans are going to answer, and we're going to be ready to be highly competitive in this district".

Around 9 a.m., the president tweeted that Democrats "failed" in the Kansas race and "are now failing in Georgia".

Pence takes message of US resolve against North Korea to Japan
Trump campaigned on an "America first" platform, and has vowed to narrow big trade deficits with nations such as China and Japan. Pyongyang continues to threaten to destroy Japan, South Korea, and the United States with its missiles.

"Karen Handel, living the high life", the commercial ends.

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

"She's the person who supports Donald Trump's efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act".

Mr Ossoff grew up in the district and says he will move back if he wins. "The progressive energy out there is palpable and the volunteers are out there".

The victor replaces Republican Tom Price, who stepped down to serve as Mr Trump's Secretary of Health and Human Services. Georgia voters want a bold vision of inclusion and economic opportunity for every Georgia family, so Jon Ossoff is in a strong position to become the first Democrat to represent the Georgia 6thin almost 40 years. Things will be different in a few months after the Republican vote solidifies behind Karen Handel.

"This is already a remarkable victory". If Ossoff gets the support of the other Democratic candidates, he would have 49 percent, said Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez. "Bring it on!" he said. Towards midnight on Tuesday he hinted to supporters, "We may not know the outcome for some time". We all have to rise above it, that it is about the district that has a long legacy of Republican leadership, from my good friend current HHS Secretary Tom Price, to Senator Isakson and former Speaker Newt Gingrich. Ossoff and Handel were two of 18 candidates vying for the seat.

He also recorded robocalls warning voters that Ossoff would derail the Republican agenda if elected.

Ossoff raised a stunning $8.3 million in the first quarter, forcing Republicans to spend heavily against him. The California Democrat remains an unpopular figure in the district.
