Trump slams 'failing' Democrats: 'It is now Hollywood vs

Even Samuel L. Jackson cut an ad for Ossoff, declaring, "We have to channel the great vengeance and furious anger we have for this administration into votes at the ballot box".

CNN called the race just after midnight. Johnny Isakson. Price won 62 percent of the vote in November, and Democrats pointed to Ossoff's success in cutting into the GOP's most recent showing as evidence the Democrat can win the runoff.

Ossoff earned 46 percent, on average, in polls taken in the three weeks leading up to the election.

Mr Ossoff, a film-maker who lives just outside the electoral district in Georgia, declared as a candidate in January, with the Democratic party quickly coalescing around his candidacy.

They almost pulled it off.

Ossoff was the big leader in the race, but he fell short of the 50 percent needed to win the special election outright.

Still, the close outcomes in Georgia as well as conservative Kansas underscored Democrats' potential to capitalize on surging liberal energy following Trump's election, even as they pointed to the limits of how far Democrats can go in Republican-friendly districts.

In response, Ossoff portrayed Trump, a NY businessman who had never held public office, as the Washington insider. At an Atlanta rally Tuesday night, he said, "We will be ready to fight on and win in June if necessary". We have shattered expectations.

"We felt pretty hopeless", Trotta said in reference to November.

And while it was clear many of his supporters saw his candidacy as a way to send a shockwave to the Trump White House, Ossoff himself rarely mentioned the president directly.

In fact, the victor of the nonpartisan primary, Democrat Jon Ossoff, a 30-year-old onetime documentary filmmaker and former political staffer, ended up getting roughly 48 percent of the total vote, about the same percentage that Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton received back in November.

He also recorded robocalls warning voters that Ossoff would derail the Republican agenda if elected. "Glad to be of help!" he wrote late on Tuesday.

DUNWOODY, Ga. (AP) - A Georgia congressional election is headed to a high-stakes runoff that's shaping up as a referendum on President Donald Trump ahead of crucial midterm elections next year. "I think Republicans who voted for him are going to have to start thinking long and hard about country over party".

What does this mean going forward?

"It also potentially puts the Senate in play, while certainly protecting our endangered red-state incumbents".

Now, attention shifts to the runoff. On Tuesday, however, voters in the affluent Atlanta suburbs turned out for a special election to hand a 30-year-old Democrat a whopping 30-point lead over his closest competitor. The other candidates each had less than 1 percent of the vote: Republicans Kurt Wilson (0.94 percent) and David Abroms (0.85 percent), Democrats Ragin Edwards (0.26 percent) and Ron Slotin (0.25 percent), Republicans Bruce LeVell (0.24 percent), Mohammad Bhuiyan, Ph.D., and Keith Grawert (0.22 percent each), Democrat Amy Kremer (0.18 percent), Republican William Llop (0.17 percent) and Democrat Rebecca Quigg, M.D. But in the one-on-one runoff, Busby was stagnant, earning 45%, while Bilbray surged to 49% support in the conservative district. Trump congratulated the GOP candidate for "easily winning the Congressional race against the Dems, who spent heavily & predicted victory!"

That distinguished her from other Republican contenders she left to squabble over who is more loyal to Trump.

Ossoff's opponent will be Karen Handel, who was Georgia's secretary of state from 2007 to 2010. In an 18-person field, he did not get more than 50 percent of the vote, but then few observers expected him to.

There were big differences between the early vote and the Election Day vote.
