Candidates in Georgia Special Election Brace For Final Weekend

Handel Ossoff call on help in final days of Georgia race

"I would never do anything that would hurt my sister", she says.

The seat was recently vacated by new Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price, who was the wealthy district's representative for more than a decade.

Early voting has surged in the race, according to reports.

Total spending has approached $40 million, obliterating the previous record of $30 million for a Florida congressional race in 2012. "I'll be out talking to voters and making he case for fresh leadership", Ossoff said. She'd rather let a child go unadopted than putting one in the care of a loving gay or lesbian couple.

Ossoff's ground game hasn't slowed down in the final days, even with Father's Day on Sunday.

Ossoff may have raised more money than Handel, but she has the support of President Trump, as well as Price and Agriculture Secretary and former Georgia Governor Sonny Perdue.

Volunteers crowded into Ossoff's field offices to launch canvasses throughout the weekend.

The man credited by law enforcement with holding two Georgia prison escapees at gunpoint says he's no hero.

Ossoff expects it to be a long night, however, with the whole country and world watching Georgia. Polls show it is headed for a tight finish in Tuesday's special election. "Every vote will count". On Twitter, he criticized Ossoff, and after Ossoff was forced into a runoff he crowed that Democrats "failed in Kansas and are now failing in Georgia". And with some analysts seeing a surge of GOP voters in early ballots, the bigger turnout in this historic Republican district could favor Handel.

Ufot said the group's strategy is to speak to minority voters about issues that matter to them, like health care, public education, voting rights, and being able to provide a check on the power of the current administration in Washington. Created in March, the grassroots group consists of women, many from metro Atlanta.

Polls will be open 7 7 p.m. He led an April primary but fell shy of an outright majority. Republicans anticipated far higher early turnout among reliably Republican voters - Georgia voters don't register by party - while Democrats point to thousands of ballots cast by newly registered voters and those who didn't vote in April. To the consternation of Bernie Sanders and others in his supporters in the party, Ossoff avoids the more fiery left-wing rhetoric that some Democrats are desperate to hear. Handel accepted an assist from the White House, but she didn't have to do it in front of TV cameras or the kind of raucous rally crowd that Trump draws.

Democrats have steadily lost ground in recent years in state and local races. A source familiar with Ossoff's campaign said they're bracing for the possibility of a recount. He reminded his former constituents of the district's GOP pedigree, electing eventual Speaker Newt Gingrich and future U.S. Sen. And that summed up rather neatly the struggle Handel and her GOP allies face.

A loss there deprives Democrats of their last opportunity for a special-election House win this year, taking some wind out of their sails as they look ahead to 2018 and casting doubt on their playbook of winning back the House through Democratic-trending suburban seats.
