He now will face Karen Handel, a former GOP Georgia secretary of state who led Republican candidates with just under 20 percent of the tally, in a runoff.

At the White House, spokesman Sean Spicer tried to do exactly that. Now, she says, she's free to ask all her friends and neighbors to be "on our team". "I think we did pretty well in November".
Ossoff has energized liberals and younger voters, while also aiming for disaffected independents and moderate Republicans.
