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.
