"We have defied the odds. shattered expectations", Ossoff said, and he urged his supporters to embrace the prospects of a runoff, telling them they would "carry us to victory".
Instead, Ossoff, who would become the youngest member of Congress if elected, forced a June runoff with the GOP front-runner, former Georgia Secretary of State Karen Handel, which will check the temperature of the 2018 races. Ossoff would have needed more than 50 percent of the vote to avoid a runoff.
"This is already a victory for the ages". But Trump, his political brand at stake, painted an opposing picture.
A political newcomer who thrilled Democrats with a strong finish in a Georgia congressional race - despite attacks by President Donald Trump - will face an experienced Republican candidate in a June runoff election for a district long dominated by the party. "It is now Hollywood vs. Georgia on June 20th".
Democrats adopted the phrase, "make Trump furious" in an attempt to animate liberal voters who wanted to frustrate and anger the president.
Ryan's most notable failure came over the last few months when he was unable to bring his party - and the Republican president - together to achieve the repeal of Obamacare, something they have been promising to do for almost a decade.
Spicer left open the possibility that Trump campaigns in Georgia ahead of the run-off. The question for Ossoff, and Democrats more broadly, is whether they can successfully link an establishment Republican like Handel to the less-than-popular Trump over the course of a two month, one-versus-one runoff slog.

Ossoff, also a former congressional staffer, drew endorsements from the national party and from veteran Georgia Congress members, including the civil rights giant Rep. John Lewis, D-Ga., for whom Ossoff once interned. "The progressive energy out there is palpable and the volunteers are out there".
Ossoff was a documentary filmmaker and former congressional aide before he jumped into the race.
"The reason is clear: voters are rejecting Trump and his policies".
Republicans in the race are split among Trump supporters and candidates trying to hold the president at arm's length.
The victor in Georgia will succeed Republican Tom Price, who resigned the seat to join Trump's administration as health secretary. What did the president tell you? It will essentially sober Republicans who are assessing whether to run in Trump's first midterm election. Republicans have controlled the seat for decades, but Trump only won it by 1 percentage point in last November's presidential election.
Cuomo noted. "You have college educated whites that didn't vote for Trump as emphatically".
