Rep. Debbie Dingell Talks Trump's Unpredictability, How Democrats Can Win in 2018

Ms. Handel, 55, has portrayed herself as a Trump supporter, though she was less fervent in her backing for him than were the other Republican candidates in the race, who adopted Mr. Trump's catchphrases and style in an attempt to stand out.

Ossoff will face Karen Handel, the top Republican vote-getter with 19.7 percent, in the June 20 runoff. Jon Ossoff, a 30-year-old Democratic rookie, outdistanced 11 Republicans - winning 48 percent of the vote. If no candidate meets that threshold, the race heads to a June 20 runoff, with the two highest vote recipients advancing to the next round.

The victor will succeed Republican Tom Price, who resigned the seat to join Trump's administration as health secretary.

Even though the Georgia 6th is wealthier and better-educated than most congressional districts, a win here could provide Democrats with a blueprint to take control of Congress in 2018's mid-term elections.

With few other events on the political calendar, the race was billed as a referendum on President Trump's first few months in office.

Pundits said Mrs Handel will likely win the run-off, but on Tuesday the Republican said in an interview with the Atlanta Journal Constitution: "Beating Ossoff and holding this seat is something that rises above any one person".

The outcomes in Kansas and Georgia also serve notice that GOP candidates may struggle to handle Trump, who engenders an intense loyalty among his core supporters but alienates many independents and even Republicans. "Glad to be of help!" he wrote late on Tuesday.

"I've been living with my girlfriend, Alisha, for 12 years now down by Emory University where she's a full-time medical student", Ossoff said. No, they lost. They made very clear what their goal was in this race.

The only one of those 10 legislative items introduced to this point is the House health-care bill, which Trump embraced only to see collapse in dramatic fashion last month.

White House press secretary Sean Spicer told reporters Wednesday that Trump will campaign for Handel "if needed", saying Trump is prepared to do "everything he can to maintain majorities to further the party".

Republican group's have predicted that Ossoff would be a "rubber-stamp" for Pelosi if elected.

Ossoff has capitalized on anti-Trump energy while still trying to appeal to independents and moderate Republicans - his only path to victory.

Maybe, say Democrats. And they're not out of place to hope.

If one candidate receives more than 50% of the vote, that candidate will win outright.

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.

"There is no doubt that this is already a victory for the ages", said Ossoff.
