Trump declares Georgia Democrats are 'failing'

"First of all, Georgia's Sixth Congressional District - the fact that Jon Ossoff pulled in five or six points more than most Republicans thought that he would have, and Lindsey Graham said this is a wakeup call to the Republican Party, that there's a lot of moderates that need to emerge in the South to a greater degree that the Republican Party needs to pay attention to", a reporter said.

Democrats are on the precipice of turning a former GOP stronghold into their first major victory of the Donald Trump era, a win that would deliver a huge morale boost to the party when it needed it most. She starts out more than 54,000 votes behind Ossoff.

Rep. Tom Cole, R-Okla., says the Georgia special election for the House was a referendum on President Donald Trump.

He benefited from earned media coverage of his candidacy and celebrity endorsements. The two will continue running until the runoff election June 20.

A little-known 30-year-old former congressional staffer, Ossoff quickly emerged as an online fundraising superstar.

Price won the district in November with over 60 percent of the vote, but Trump beat his Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton, by barely a percentage point in the district.

Congratulations to Jon Ossoff's campaign for all of their hard work in tonight's landslide in the race for Georgia's 6 Congressional District. On the other side, the four main Republicans in the field split 48 percent of the vote among them.

Trump took to his favorite messaging service Tuesday to encourage Republicans to vote and to reject Ossoff, one of several tweets leading up to the election.

For Republicans, Ossoff's strong performance acts as another wake-up call alongside a closer-than-expected win in a House special election last week in arch-conservative Kansas.

The GOP has controlled the district since 1979. Another special election is coming up in Montana next month. On June 20, voters will return to the polls to choose, once and for all, between Ossoff and Handel. GOP strategist Chip Lake said Ossoff "is in for the fight of his life".

"To me what's fantastic is that we continue to see this level shift across the country, a 20-point swing, that puts about 123 Republican seats potentially in play", said Daily Kos founder Markos Moulitsas. "My family is still there". He sought support from the district's Jewish community. Anything short of describing that as a loss is sort of inconceivable to me in the sense that's what they said their goal was to do. But she also was careful not to criticize the new administration.

House Oversight Committee chair Rep. Chaffetz says he won't run for re-election
The crowdfunding site CrowdPac has already raised over $11,000 in pledges if Curtis agreed to challenge the congressman. Chaffetz is a popular figure among conservative Republicans and a long-time thorn in the District of Columbia's side.

But their investment was meager compared to the money spent by Republicans and their allies, who poured millions into the race in TV and digital ads.

It took a sudden evolution for the district to become competitive at all. Lemon breathlessly cooed. "Did that sound like Barack Obama?".

But 2016 told a much different story.

The Georgia 6th is not in this category, but it's close- gain, Trump won the district by only 1.5 percent. Voting history and demographics of the district, which spans from east Cobb County to north DeKalb County, are still squarely against him.

Ossoff was one of three Jews - another Democrat and a Republican - running Tuesday.

"There is no doubt this is already a victory for the ages", Ossoff told his supporters, praising them for a campaign that has collected more than $8.3 million, most of it from well beyond Georgia. He'll vie again for the seat in June against Handel, in a race where neither candidate has a clear advantage.

Fox to investigate sexual harassment claim against O'Reilly
Several Fox News personalities, including Sean Hannity and Jeanine Pirro, defended Trump in the wake of the release of the tape. Baldwin reprised his Trump impression in a Bill O'Reilly sketch-in which he also portrayed O'Reilly.

He'll now go back to the same donor base for a new round of cash to fuel his campaign, which will come under more targeted attacks from Handel and a more unified Republican base. Yes, we can, Jon Ossoff! "We have opened an investigation, and we are taking steps to ensure that it has no effect on the election".
