Republican Karen Handel is the projected winner of the Georgia House special election.
Jim Galloway of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution is warning that the heavy rain in the Sixth District could depress turnout for Republican Karen Handel in the House special election.
Galloway said on MTP Daily, “I don’t want to be a weatherman, but it’s pouring here. We’re in the middle of a deluge, two to four inches, flooding advisory until 10 PM, and that could affect your Karen Handel voter.”
Trying to use the popular former president to suppress the vote won't discourage Democrats in Georgia – it'll only motivate them more.
Ossoff is focusing not just on the corruption that continues to consume the White House, but the disastrous Republican policy agenda that will bury the middle class.
Ossoff now leads his Republican candidate by seven points as Republican and Independent voters flock to his campaign.
The Democrat's lead is slim, but it appears to be somewhat durable and is even showing signs that he is gaining support as the June 20 election approaches.
Democrat Jon Ossoff dominated the first debate with Republican Karen Handel as he delivered a clear message of independence and change, while Handel stumbled on health care and snuggled up to Trump.
Democrat Jon Ossoff leads Republican Karen Handel 49.1% to 47.6% in a new poll ahead of the special House election in Georgia.
The increasingly explosive Russia scandal isn't just dragging the president down – he's taking the entire GOP with him.
A record $30 million has been poured into a race neither side can afford to lose as Democrats seek to regain control of the House
Democrats got a huge boost in their effort to win the House special election in Georgia when a federal judge blocked the state's 90-day voter registration deadline, which means that all of those new voters that Jon Ossoff is registering will get to vote in the runoff election.
An analysis of the voter file from the jungle primary in the Georgia House special election showed that Democrat Jon Ossoff has attracted a key level of Republican support in the district.
Ossoff is not only up 48-47 but he holds a 12-point lead among run-off voters who voted in 2016 but did not vote in the 2014 midterms
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) has issued a statement clarifying his previous remarks and throwing his full support behind Democratic candidate Jon Ossoff in the Georgia US House runoff election.
Georgia Republicans are so afraid that they are going to lose to Jon Ossoff in June that they are trying to suppress the Democratic vote by not allowing newly registered voters to vote in the runoff.
If this is the GOP's secret weapon in keeping control of the hotly contested seat, then they're in big trouble.
"We have shattered expectations. We are changing the world. And your voices are going to ring out across this state and across this country.”
"Despite major outside money, FAKE media support and eleven Republican candidates, BIG "R" win with runoff in Georgia. Glad to be of help!"
A rare data error has held up the vote counting in Fulton County, Georgia as Democrat Jon Ossoff was leading the special House election.
For much of the evening, Democrat Jon Ossoff looked to be on pace to finish with 50% of the vote, but as the results come in Ossoff is now projected to finish at between 45% and 48.5%, which means that the special election in Georgia will go to a June runoff.
