She did not embrace President Trump during the campaign, but took a congratulatory call from him and said she would accept a visit to the White House.
Democratic candidate for Georgia's Sixth Congressional Seat Jon Ossoff speaks to supporters during an election-night watch party Tuesday, April 18, 2017, in Dunwoody, Ga. But there were numerous Republicans in the race, and in aggregate they secured 51 percent, compared to 49 percent for Democrats, a sign Ossoff has a challenge before him to flip the district.
Having Trump in the race would likely be welcomed by Democrats, who have energized volunteers on behalf of Ossoff due to their disdain for the president.
If you saw the winning Republican's name and thought that maybe both runoff candidates down in Georgia vying for the empty House seat were at least female-friendly, think again. "Glad to be of help!" he tweeted.
"We defied the odds, shattered expectations, and now are ready to fight on and win in June", he said.
Trump earned the lowest percentage of votes compared to any other Republican presidential candidate in recent history with 48.3 percent.
"Well, I would want President Trump tweeting for me", said Nancy Couch.
Democrats are on the precipice of turning a former GOP stronghold into their first major victory of the Donald Trump era, a win that would deliver a huge morale boost to the party when it needed it most.
Earlier, as supporters waited on returns, between country songs on the free music app, Pandora, an Ossoff ad had actually played out over her supporters.
The press secretary pointed to the fact that Ossoff was the only serious Democrat who ran while more than a dozen Republicans threw their hat in the ring. When Mick Mulvaney was elected to represent the district in 2010, he was the first Republican to earn that position since 1883; all of the representatives of this district throughout the 20th century were Democrats.
"Well", the GOP candidate responded, "let's just keep in mind that on the Democrat side, they were largely consolidated around their coronated candidate here", and they spent more than $8 million in out-of-state funds and "$5.5 million on TV alone, compared to roughly $75,000 that I spent on television". More broadly, though, his performance signals to Democratic lawmakers in centrist or even Republican-leaning states and districts-even those that went red just five months ago-that constituents will turn out to support politicians who oppose Donald Trump.
The president's approval rating has not topped 50 percent since he took office on January 20, Reuters/Ipsos polling shows. "And when they're following the ALEC playbook of the far right, they make it harder for people to vote", Perez said, referring to the conservative American Legislative Exchange Council. Under the so-called "jungle primary" system, the top two candidates - Ossoff and Handel - will head into the June runoff.
