Trump blasts 'super liberal Democrat' in Georgia special election

Ossoff responded: "I support comprehensive immigration reform that secures the border and provides a path to legal status in an orderly way for non-felons who are here without proper documentation". But the other three Republicans have more money than her and a wider ad presence.

They'll need 2018 to be a landslide year for Democrats nationwide in order to win, Bass said.

There are, of course, a number of conflating factors behind Ossoff's rise to the top of the polls in the sixth congressional district, not the least of which being that Trump performed very poorly in the district and that Republican candidates in the race are highlighting intra-party division by blasting each other rather than their Democratic opponents.

"If Ossoff is unable to obtain 50% in the primary on Tuesday he will be forced into a run-off against the candidate who comes in second place". And once again, the Progressive donkeys are all hot and bothered by their chances, given that their man is one of only five Democrats in the first round against eleven GOP wannabes. Two independent candidates also are running.

Republican supporters were in for a bit of a shock when the IL local elections came to a close.

Both parties have dispatched paid field staffers, and a Republican political action committee backed by House Speaker Paul Ryan has spent more than $2 million pounding Ossoff.

In Kansas' 4th Congressional District, Republican Ron Estes defeated Democrat James Thompson April 11 after Republican Rep. Mike Pompeo became Central Intelligence Agency director under Mr. Trump.

Mr. Trump was apparently referring to Democrat Jon Ossoff. 'No one is naive enough to think that he will not be beholden to those who are bankrolling him'. Dan Moody earned 9 percent.

The back-and-forth between Trump and Ossoff reflects the overall narrative of the whirlwind campaign since Price's Cabinet confirmation.

"Anyone raising that much outside money can't represent me", Aftewicz said.

"Ossoff is barely clearing a third of the remaining vote with much of the rest divided in a battle royal between four Republican hopefuls", Decision Desk HQ's Brandon Finnigan wrote to introduce the newly released poll his outlet sponsored. (It was unclear whether the offer had his bosses' approval, but the cook's support was noted.) At one point, Ossoff's chief Republican rival, Karen Handel, a former Secretary of State in Georgia who has also run, unsuccessfully, for the Republican nominations for governor and senator, drove by and stopped for a red light.

From the outset, Trump has loomed large in the contest. Marco Rubio, one of a gaggle of Republican presidential hopefuls that Trump vanquished. She considers her vote a small indicator of her disapproval toward Trump. Over 90% of that came from outside district as liberals across the country contributed to his campaign as a way to fight Trump.

"He is being bankrolled by Nancy Pelosi and the liberal left", Handel said at a recent debate. And Gray, in particular, is an interesting test case: He's running as a pro-Trump loyalist with a promise to be a "willing partner" to the President. "There was not a single proposal in that speech that I don't agree with", Gray told The Associated Press. If no candidate receives 50% of the vote, a runoff will be held in May.

"While I'm glad the President is interested in the race, he is misinformed", he said in a statement. "I think these predictable, partisan and fear-based attacks will be rejected by the voters of this district".
