Trump urges voters to turn out for special House election in Georgia

President Trump again tweeted about 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.

This time, Trump urged Republicans to come out and vote. Earlier in the day, he sent a tweet disparaging the front-runner, Democrat Jon Ossoff.

Ossoff is trying to escape a runoff by gaining a majority against 11 Republican contenders, and polls put him within striking distance of that goal.

The election, which will be held Tuesday in a swath of Atlanta suburbs, has GOP officials filled with angst.

After a scare for Republicans in Kansas last Tuesday, when a congressional race got uncomfortably close in a district Trump had dominated in the presidential election, the Georgia fight teeters on becoming a full-blown crisis for a party that should be relishing its recent success and consolidating power.

A Democratic win, unthinkable only weeks ago, is now a very real possibility. It would be yet another indication that Democrats are not the only party hobbled by a national identity crisis in the age of Trump.
