Democratic candidate Jon Ossoff for Georgia's 6th Congressional District special election speaks during an election eve rally at Andretti Indoor Karting and Games in Roswell

Georgia voters streamed into polling sites throughout the day Tuesday in the suburbs north of Atlanta to cast their ballots in the special election to fill the vacancy left by Tom Price, who is now US secretary of Health and Human Services.

But even the most optimistic Republican warns that hard-to-predict turnout models, mixed with rainy weather that besieged parts of the district, add another dose of uncertainty. A victory for Ossoff, who is a 30-year-old former congressional staffer, would deal a symbolic blow to Trump's nascent administration and signal that anti-Trump sentiment among Democrats has staying power.

LIASSON: We are seeing some results, but there - too few of them to draw any conclusions. An Ossoff win would be seen as a powerful bellwether of the prevailing national mood.

This district is not one Democrats would normally have any business seriously contesting.

LIASSON: It's a big deal because it's the only game in town. He says special elections are a different animal. It's been reliably Republican for decades.

This seat, which takes in the well-heeled suburbs of Atlanta, is usually safe territory for establishment Republicans, like former occupant Tom Price. It's suburban, highly educated.

Ron Estes is gearing up to represent Kansas' 4th Congressional District, but it might not be all that easy.

Going into extra time, Bayern applied pressure to the Real defense but couldn't break their back line. Manuel Neuer's fingertips turned Dani Carvajal's drive behind.

Under normal circumstances, Ossoff wouldn't have much chance.

Republican Karen Handel, the state's former secretary of state, was firmly in second place, with 18% of the vote, and in position to face Ossoff in June.

Trailing him are four Republicans.

I call this election a ham sandwich election.

Trump also recorded a message for Republican voters, urging them to get out to the polls.

And money has been pouring into this district for Ossoff.

Crait , as director Rian Johnson recently revealed, is the mineral-mining planet in the trailer that looks like salt flats. At the end of the panel, it was suggested that more Star Wars Land details will be released at the D23 convention in July.

What would compel Trump to put his first 89 days on the line then in a district that isn't ready-made for his version of the Republican party?

Jon Ossoff, the Democratic golden boy with a slight chance of winning the special election for Georgia's 6th Congressional District Tuesday evening, can't even vote for himself because he does not live in the district.

Ossoff has drawn volunteers and donors from out of state who see the race as a way to strike a blow against Trump. Eastern, Ossoff had about 50.3% of the vote, with only about half of the precincts reporting. And that would really send shockwaves through the party, and it would be interpreted as a very strong negative referendum on Trump.

By now Americans know Donald Trump doesn't care about their taxes - he wastes millions of their tax dollars every weekend he golfs, which is every other weekend. He's made robocalls to Republicans.

The possibility of making it to a runoff has led 18 candidates - 13 Republicans and five Democrats - to enter the race.

Trump's daughter and adviser Ivanka got approval for trademarks in China on the day she dined with Chinese President Xi Jinping at Mar-a-Lago.

MVP favorites Harden, Westbrook get first-round showdown
Not only did they lose, but Westbrook's performance set him back a little in the MVP race with none other than Harden. Maybe the most alarming thing about this game from a Thunder perspective was the reversal of defensive identities.
