Ossoff Only Earned 1.3 Percent More Than Clinton In Georgia's 6th

"It is now Hollywood vs Georgia on June 20th", he said. He has also mobilized strong opposition against President Trump.

Despite major outside money, FAKE media support and eleven Republican candidates, BIG "R" win with runoff in Georgia.

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.

Special elections will hold particular importance for Democrats this year, as Republicans now control both the House and Senate. That will energize Trump's supporters to turn out to vote for her in June.

Springle's take Wednesday was simple: "Let's get to work".

"This is a Republican district but it is not a strongly Trump district", House Republican Tom Cole said of the sixth district, home to many well-educated voters who are reliably Republican but frustrated by the new president. Now, she says, she's free to ask all her friends and neighbors to be "on our team".

"If you run as a Democrat, you're a Democrat", Sanders said.

Had Mr Ossoff managed to get more than 50 per cent of the total, he would have won outright. "The reaction has somewhat been, you know, that they nearly won". National Republican groups spent millions of dollars painting Ossoff as a neophyte who does not live in the area he aims to represent.

Ossoff has crafted his campaign around resisting Trump.

Other Republicans saw clear warning signs in Tuesday night's outcome.

The nearest Republican - former state secretary of state Karen Handel - came in at just 19.8 per cent.

"I think it's overstated the effect that what is going on in Washington has on a local race like this, where local issues are the most important thing to voters", Ossoff said. "The only way you fight that is. fire up the Republican base".

For his part, Ossoff said for weeks his goal was to win outright, but he rejected any notion that he lost.

Another congressional battle will play out late next month in conservative-leaning Montana, where voters will pick a replacement for Republican Ryan Zinke, who has become Trump's United States interior secretary.
