Trump takes credit for blocking Democratic win in Georgia race


John Garst, a Handel consultant, told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that it's now up to Georgia's Republican heavyweights to decide whether to rally behind Handel. Jon Ossoff came out top in a crowded field of 18 candidates competing to fill a vacant seat in the House of Representatives.

In Karen Handel, Republicans found an experienced political hand to take on Democratic online fundraising star Jon Ossoff in the runoff for a hotly contested House seat in Georgia. Republican Karen Handel, 55, a former Georgia secretary of state, won 19.8 percent, and will face Ossoff in the June 20 runoff. And they are preparing to make Handel answer for some of Trump's most unpopular policies, including the failed GOP health care proposal that had just 17% support.

"I felt like Gray was the least of a politician", he said.

Trump apparently called Handel Wednesday morning to congratulate her, according to a muted tweet she sent out. Democrats are also looking to build momentum heading into next year's midterm elections.

Left-wing critics and Bernie Sanders supporters have argued that this is the wrong way to view the Democratic Party's main pickup opportunities. Please support our efforts.

"I'm supporting Karen Handel because she is a strong conservative who will represent the best interests of those in the 6th Congressional District", Deal said. But if in November 2018, we have succeeded in taking back the House, a lot of those 23 will probably have been among those that flipped. "The progressive energy out there is palpable". "Onward to victory", Ossoff, a documentary filmmaker and former congressional aide who campaigned on the idea he would be a check against Trump, said Wednesday on Twitter. A Republican has held the seat since 1979, and Price won 62 percent of the vote in November.

"So many pundits and, frankly, activists obsess purely over wins and losses, but I've said from day one that what matters most is the final margin", said David Nir, political director for Daily Kos, a liberal blog that helped direct attention to Ossoff and raised over $1 million for him. "Bring it on!" he said.

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.

"I think you know that based on my former position, we talked about changing demographics throughout the country and made significant headway in doing that".

Trump signs boy's hat then throws it into the crowd US President Donald Trump has added a fresh gaffe to his list after he was filmed offering to a sign a young fan's hat before throwing into a crowd and laughing.

In fact, Trump gave Ossoff his opening in the first place.

Handel moved quickly to unite her fractured party, drawing immediate endorsements from some of her fellow GOP candidates and national party leaders, including House Speaker Paul Ryan.

National Republicans say any of the four competitive candidates could defeat Ossoff in a second round of voting. The leadership of the Democratic party quickly jumped behind the message with several high-dollar fundraisers hosted by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and New Jersey Democratic Sen.
