Trump tweets about Democrats, Georgia election

The most expensive House race in USA history has taken a dark turn in its closing days following the shooting of congressman Steve Scalise.

Both Ossoff's campaign and Handel's disavowed the ad.

The two campaigns expect turnout to blow past the 2014 midterm election turnout of 210,000.

Handel made a similar appeal to honor the district's "legacy".

Yes, it's just one congressional seat and special elections aren't necessarily good bellwethers of election results more than a year down the road. Handel reported raising $5.5 million through the beginning of June, a respectable total for a normal special election, but one that put her $18 million behind her upstart, 30-year-old opponent.

President Donald Trump took to Twitter Monday to urge Georgia's sixth congressional district to vote for Karen Handel in the special election that will be held Tuesday. By the way, there's another special election doing down tomorrow in SC, where voters will pick a replacement for President Trump's OMB Director, Mick Mulvaney.

U.S. Capitol Police Special Agent Crystal Griner, who was shot in the leg, and lobbyist Matt Mika, who was shot in the chest, are both expected to make full recoveries. McDonald's charts showed that early voters got out to a hot start, but slowly tapered off as the weeks continued. He will still win early voting. Among the respondents to the poll, 58% of early voters voted for Ossoff with Handel at 42 percent.

Tuesday's runoff is the opposition party's third major bite at the apple since Trump took office. The President rambled so much that he couldn't fit her whole name into the tweet, which speaks volumes about Trump's lack of discipline and inability to organize his thoughts.

The homestretch scramble was marked by a last-minute ad from a little-known political action committee trying to tie Ossoff's campaign to the "violent left" and the recent shooting of Republican House Whip Steve Scalise by a man who identified as a liberal. According to the Cook Political Report's Partisan Voter Index, there are 71 Republican-held House seats that are actually less GOP-leaning than Georgia's 6th Congressional District.

The safe money is on Handel.

Dr. Nadine Becker wasn't politically involved until she saw Donald Trump elected president, but the suburban Atlanta gynecologist didn't know how to engage, given her traditionally Republican surroundings.

Days after a lone gunman opened fire on USA lawmakers at a baseball team practice in Virginia, a conservative group was running a TV ad in Atlanta that, with no evidence, appears to link the Democratic candidate, Jon Ossoff, to the shooting spree.

"Because moderates and independents in this district are exhausted of left-wing extremism", Carver added. Handel, on the other hand, hasn't fully embraced Trump, but she hasn't fully rejected him, either. We've got you covered.

As CNSNews.com reported in April, Ossoff can not even vote for himself, because he does not now live in the congressional district he wants to represent.

Democrats are counting on an Ossoff victory to send a message to Trump, to Washington and the national electorate at large.
