Record-breaking congressional election headed for photo finish

20 June 2017, 05:08 | Darnell Patrick

So with turnout already looking high, experts believe Ossoff needs to increase his margin by about 6,000 or more votes to be in good shape.

His campaign has attracted more supporters than some expected.

"The campaign has built a coalition of Democrats, independents and Republicans who want to send some fresh leadership to Washington, who want to focus on results rather than partisanship, who want to see a greater commitment to accountability", Ossoff told USA TODAY after a campaign event in the district last week. A bright pink mailer from the Planned Parenthood Action Fund also urged residents to vote for Ossoff.

The race between Republican Karen Handel and Democrat Jon Ossoff is seen as a significant political test for the new Trump Administration and spending could top $50 million, making it the most expensive House race in USA history.

Polls will close at 7 p.m. ET unless hours are extended due to delayed openings, according to Candice Broce, a spokeswoman with the Georgia secretary of state's office. She touts her success with balancing in the budget as chairman of the Fulton County Board of Commissioners and becoming Georgia's first elected Republican Secretary of State.

The race between Ossoff and Republican Karen Handel is s.

Republicans are facing a sobering reminder of their president's poor approval ratings, as 30-year-old centrist Democrat Jon Ossoff, a filmmaker and onetime political assistant, clings to the narrowest of leads. More so, a Handel win, would yield this dream come true for free-marketeers: Democrats will have racked up a ideal record of special-election losses in the House since President Trump's election.

Trump wrote that Ossoff "can't even vote. because he doesn't even live there!" The race between Handel and Democrat Jon Ossoff. Handel and several neighbors received threatening letters with a white substance the Federal Bureau of Investigation later said was likely not hazardous. Some Democrats will be quick to note that Tom Price, the congressman whose departure to join the administration created the high-profile vacancy, won re-election past year by more than 20 points. Others - along with every Republican who feels like chatting (or tweeting) - will note the Democrats' own massive investment, and either rage or chuckle at what that spending got in return.

If Ossoff wins, look for Democrats to seize on that message as a warning shot for 2018. What they tend to have in common: Relatively highly educated, wealthy and diverse populations, plus people who - like thousands in Ossoff's district - voted for Mitt Romney in 2012 and then backed Hillary Clinton in 2016. You know where most of my donors are from y'all?

Donald Trump gave Karen Handel such a awful endorsement that he didn't leave enough room in his tweet to include her full name. Ossoff says any tax changes should be "fiscally responsible".

From the GOP's perspective, a Handel victory is just as important for its potentially demoralizing effect on Democrats.

The election is being closely watched by both parties as a signal of what may lie ahead in next year's mid-term elections, when Democrats hope to win back control of the House of Representatives.
