Triumph in Georgia: Jon Ossoff Landslide Reinforces Resistance to Trump

Triumph in Georgia: Jon Ossoff Landslide Reinforces Resistance to Trump

Trump took late interest in the election to fill the old House seat of Health & Human Services Secretary Tom Price in recent days, tweeting repeatedly about it and recording a robocall calling on Republicans to turn out for the race.

Next month, Democrats and Republicans will tangle again in a House race in Montana, a contest where the Congressional Leadership Fund and NRCC are already running attack ads against Democratic nominee Rob Quist.

For Ossoff, it appears he will have to move forward to the June runoff, though it was initially unclear as to whether he would challenge the results from the jungle primary. "They came up short", Spicer said during Wednesday's briefing. The government is funded through April 28.

Pete Korman, 6th District voter, said national enthusiasm for Ossoff has been frustrating to watch, but he thinks Handel will win voters in the 6th.

"We're the underdog in this", said Tom Perez, chairman of the Democratic National Committee, said on MSNBC on Monday. "Glad to be of help!" the president tweeted, pointing to the large sums of money raised by donors outside the state of Georgia.

BJP leading in 34 wards, Congress trailing
Congress had won 49 seats in 2012 polls, but managed to win just 28 seats in this year's Municipal Corporation elections. In the 70-member Latur Municipal Corporation, BJP won 41 seats - getting majority while Congress was stranded to 28.

The White House has claimed a special election in Georgia in which a young Democrat came first by nearly 30 points, was in fact a "big loss" for the party.

"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.

Handel won just 19.8%, but in Trump's eyes, that's a "BIG" win.

Ossoff said on CNN that Trump was misinformed about his positions and that he was focused on issues affecting the northern Atlanta suburbs, not Washington.

But what Pelley failed to mention was that despite how much Ossoff was "the top vote getter", the Republican vote was dangerously split between 11 different candidates.

The former Georgia secretary of state will face Democrat Jon Ossoff in a runoff for the 6th Congressional District. Before Price held the seat it was former House Speaker Newt Gingrich's, who at one point was the only Republican in the state's House delegation.

The Ossoff campaign was greatly hoping to avoid the runoff as Georgia's 6th district has been a GOP stronghold for generations, and with a crowded Republican field, Ossoff hoped to benefit from the fractured Republican block. The president barely edged Hillary Clinton here in November, falling short of a majority four years after Republican Mitt Romney got more than 60 percent of the presidential vote. "We have shattered expectations", Ossoff told supporters Tuesday night before the race had been projected.

Handel spends most of her efforts touting her record in public office, but makes a point to join in the Pelosi bashing.

Republicans have made their own attempts at nationalizing the campaign. The California Democrat remains an unpopular figure in the district.
