Georgia GOP congressional hopeful
20 April 2017, 10:13 | Gladys Abbott
Jon Ossoff, a Democrat making his first bid for elective office, narrowly missed an outright win in a traditionally Republican House district in Georgia, a race seen as a referendum of President Donald Trump.
The former congressional aide hovered around 50 per cent of the vote for most of the Tuesday evening, but eventually dipped to a total vote share of 48 percent. "Democrat Jon Ossoff would be a disaster in Congress", he tweeted early in the morning.
Actor Samuel L. Jackson recorded a 45-second radio ad endorsing Ossoff that ran for several days before the election. She was all smiles, but admitted to being a little nervous about the outcome of what she says has been a very competitive race. And early Wednesday morning, he even took some of the credit.
"I think this was a big loss for them".
National Republicans, hamstrung by a convoluted 11-candidate field in their own party, responded to Ossoff in force.
Ossoff will face Karen Handel, the top Republican vote-getter with 19.7 percent, in the June 20 runoff.
Ossoff attempted to make the special election all about President Donald Trump.
"This is already a victory for the ages". "We have defied the odds. shattered expectations", Ossoff told supporters, adding that they'd "carry us to victory" in June.
And they came close.
Reporters asked Handel about the impact of President Trump's involvement.
The district's congressional seat has been occupied by the GOP since 1979 when eventual Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich first won election to the house of representatives. Last week, a House race in Kansas became unexpectedly competitive, with the GOP nominee defeating a Democrat by just seven points in a district Republicans won by more than 30 points in November. Republicans, get out and vote! Tonight's results are further proof that the grassroots energy we're seeing across the country can translate to electoral progress in every zip code. "We all have to rise above it, that it is about the district that has a long legacy of Republican leadership".
Ossoff was backed by major Democratic PACs and raised $8.3 million this quarter, mostly from outside groups.
Perez said he hopes the Georgia win will be one of many as the 2018 midterm elections approach. "That is Jon Ossoff".
Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez insisted Democrats have the momentum in the Georgia race, and made clear his party will not be shy about tying Handel to Trump.
