Trump boosts Georgia congressional race

President Trump continued to comment on a special election in Georgia's 6th Congressional District to replace the seat left vacant when Tom Price became his Health and Human Services secretary.

The day before, Trump ripped media coverage of the race, as well as a separate special election in Kansas' 4th Congressional District that took place April 11. In a tweet, he suggested that news outlets had downplayed Republicans' win in Kansas and would do the same if the GOP won the Georgia election, which is set for Tuesday.

The front-runner in the Georgia race is 30-year-old Jon Ossoff, who is trying to escape a runoff by gaining a majority over 11 Republicans.

With support from Democratic donors nationwide, Ossoff has raised a staggering $8.3 million, dwarfing contributions to all of his Republican rivals combined.

As of last week, he was polling at about 40%, far beyond any of his contenders in the open primary.

Ossoff is a cautious, scripted moderate who spends much less time on the campaign trail whipping up rage against Trump than carefully calculating remarks that avoid offending the area’s upscale suburban electorate.
