Trump on Georgia runoff: 'Glad to be of help!'

President Trump credited himself with helping Republicans force the front-running Democratic candidate for an Atlanta-area House seat into a runoff.

Jon Ossoff, a 30-year-old former Democratic congressional aide and filmmaker making his first run for public office, easily finished in first place. But he narrowly missed the 50%-plus-one-vote mark that would have given him the seat outright.

Instead he will meet Republican Karen Handel, a former Georgia secretary of state, in the June 20 runoff.

Trump did not endorse a candidate in the crowded Republican field but openly encouraged party members to show up Tuesday and deny Ossoff an outright victory. Since Monday, he delivered six tweets either criticizing Ossoff — often misleadingly — or asking voters to side with a GOP candidate.
