Polls: Nominees Tied in Georgia's Special Election

"I was yelling at the TV and throwing things at the TV", recalls the 55-year-old mother of three.

On the Republican side, Health Secretary Tom Price and Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue, who is a former two-term Georgia governor, headed to Georgia to campaign for Handel. Both parties have invested a huge amount of resources into this race - making it the most expensive House contest ever.

Democrats need to flip 24 GOP-held seats to regain a House majority.

"This is about who will support Donald Trump and his agenda", says Sleeth, a 37-year-old landscaper from Johns Creek, Georgia.

Handel says the Senate can make improvements, but she'd have voted for the House-passed version.

Turnout low with Macron set for parliamentary landslide
He added that the party needs to change its ideas and its organisation and that a "collective leadership" is going to replace him. This is the very first legislative election for En Marche, but now that his party has a majority in the Assembly.

For McCleary, 58, it's less about Trump. Democrat Jon Ossoff is trying for an upset over Handel in the GOP-leaning 6th Congressional District that stretches across greater Atlanta's northern suburbs.

The seat has been in GOP hands since 1978, having been held by such Republican stalwarts as Newt Gingrich and Johnny Isakson.

Republican Karen Handel is scheduled to campaign Saturday with the man she hopes to replace, Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price. "I would never do anything that would hurt my sister", she says.

The seat has always been held by Republicans, but the 30-year-old Ossoff is hoping to change that in Tuesday's runoff vote. He's also taken aim at Handel as a "career politician" and an executive for the Susan G. Komen Foundation when the organization threatened to cut off funding for Planned Parenthood, a health care and abortion provider.

But it very well may, with polls showing a tossup in Georgia's 6th Congressional District, where Republicans usually coast.

Because of the district's status as suburban, educated and diverse, the Georgia race could be a harbinger of Democrats' ability to compete for similar Republican-held seats in places like Orange County, California, the Philadelphia suburbs and NY state in 2018. But the proposal also would allow states to obtain waivers that would jettison existing prohibitions on charging more for patients based on individual history and risk. But Handel is well-known among Georgia Republicans, and national GOP groups have spent big on her behalf.

Dspite their emphasis on local matters, the candidates have generally aligned with their national parties on policy. She broadly endorsed Trump's loose outlines for tax cuts; he's said any plan must be "fiscally responsible".

The two campaigns expect turnout to blow past the 2014 midterm election turnout of 210,000.

Of the 140,000 votes, over 114,000 were cast in person and another 25,000 plus by mail, according to CBS affiliate WGCL.

The reality, says Ossoff backer Dodoo Saakwa-Mante, is that no one knows who'll win or what it actually means for Washington. Many are casting their vote as a defense of Trump, a stand for conservative values or a strike against national Democrats who think they understand Georgia.
