Voters to settle most expensive congressional race in history — Georgia special election

High-stakes referendum on Trump takes shape in a Georgia special election

"The people of this district are not from a views and a values standpoint aligned with Nancy Pelosi". The question is whether the residents will be Democrats or Republicans.

Q: Why should anyone care about a US House race in Georgia?

Handel is the 54-year-old president of Handel Strategy Group, a consulting firm.

Ossoff narrowly missed winning the once deep-red seat - vacated in January by Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price - outright during the April open primary. He previously worked on the staff of Rep. Hank Johnson, D-Lithonia. A WSB-Landmark Communications poll on Saturday indicated that the race is almost deadlocked, with Handel leading 49.7 percent to 48 percent. That's more than double the 56,830 early ballots cast in the April 18 special election. Would they vote for Ossoff? The president urged Republicans to "Vote "R" on Tuesday.

Ossoff's campaign said he planned to hold events in Chamblee, Sandy Springs, Tucker and Roswell. Don't know much about this race or why it matters? "On Tuesday, #VoteKarenHandel", said the president on Twitter. "I think that those concerns have only grown over time". "Let's not have 11 Republicans running for the same position, OK?" It'll be close, but we'll win it. Handel, in particular, received letters with a white, powdery substance. Ossoff is trying for an upset over Republican Karen Handel in the GOP-leaning 6th Congressional District that stretches across greater Atlanta's northern suburbs. In other words: It's still anybody's race.

Now, Handel falsely claims Democrats pumped $30 million into the Georgia race.

"The press really wants to make this nationalized", said Handel. Nearly all of his money has been raised from out-of-district sources. The candidates and outside groups have spent a combined $51 million on the contest. But Handel also has benefited from millions in out-of-state spending.

All that money has meant residents have been bombarded with reminders of the race.

Yet there have been a few signs that Handel has closed the gap and gained ground on Ossoff to the point of a literal toss-up. It's hard to watch TV, listen to the radio or browse the web without being reminded to vote.

There are less than 24 hours left before voters head to the polls in the 6 District Congressional Race. It's also one of the most contentious. Instead of discouraging progressive voters, it's likely to motivate them even more.

"Certainly for us to be neck and neck at this point with the early voting is exactly where I wanted to be".

Missouri's Jason Kander had perhaps the most notable campaign ad of 2016 during his failed bid for the U.S. Senate. We only have 37 working days between now and the end of this fiscal year.

"I'll tell you what: I think the shooting is going to win this election for us", Carver told The Washington Post.

A recent poll by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution revealed only one-quarter of District 6 voters said they favored the House's new plan.

"The sequel is coming real soon", Swint said.

Republicans, weighed down by Trump's growing unpopularity, must demonstrate they can separate themselves from the president enough to hold suburban districts that only now are becoming battlegrounds.
