Trump Cabinet officers urge on Republicans in Georgia race

Handel, Ossoff call on help in final days of Georgia race

The race is being widely reported as the most expensive Congressional race in history. Moderates and independents out there want to give him a chance.

The ad says that "these same leftists are all for Ossoff, and if he wins, they win".

Business owners Brian Sleeth and Dave McCleary are equally appalled, but for reasons that leave them backing Handel.

The GOP message in the 6th is certainly quite different from the message championed by Ossoff, who tells us relentlessly that he's willing to work with anybody to make progress for the American people. "She is from that district, and nobody knows the district better than her".

For McCleary, 58, it's less about Trump. At the same time, Handel's victory could persuade Republicans that the political fallout is not as severe as many think and to move forward with the bill.

The 6th congressional district has been held by Newt Gingrich, Sen. It was represented by Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price until he resigned to join Trump's Cabinet.

Ossoff has gained national notoriety over the past several months and has raised an astounding $23 million in a race that has seen about $50 million in total spending.

"My opponent likes to talk about it", she says. It has drawn national attention, and cash has followed. And the attention is all the more intense given Republicans held on to House seats in Montana and Kansas earlier this spring and are expected to hold a SC seat on Tuesday.

Both Handel and Ossoff have condemned the ad, which starts with the sounds of gunshots and graphic footage showing Scalise bloodied and being taken away on a stretcher. But she's also allied with other GOP leaders, including House Speaker Paul Ryan and Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal.

Both parties are throwing their weight behind their candidates.

Handel has been cagey, too, on the Republican health-care plan, saying the House bill is far from flawless in a nod to concerns among voters about the legislation's scope and its coverage of people who have preexisting conditions or rely on Medicaid. Ossof's site says the minimum wage should be increased "at a pace that allows employers to adapt their business plans". All told, over 140,000 early votes have been cast in this race, including from 36,000 people who did not vote in the primary, Politico reports.

Voter turnout on April 18 was 44 percent, according to the Georgia Secretary of State.

Ossoff has condemned the ad, calling on Handel to implore the PAC to remove it from television. Perdue defended Trump as "a true populist", but acknowledged that even "some Republicans" are "turned off" by the president.

"No, Chris. Let me be crystal clear so you completely understand: We have not received nor are we aware of any investigation of the president of the United States", Sekulow said.
