Priciest House Race in History Is Too Close to Call

Jon Ossoff: The 30-year-old has never been a candidate for office before this race, but Ossoff is no political neophyte.

"The out-of-state money is insane", said Price, whose vacated congressional seat is up for grabs on Tuesday.

The president headlined a fundraiser for Handel when he was in town in late April, where he quipped to the former secretary of state that she'd "better win." I'd also argue that if we're going to bewail the divisiveness that marks modern American politics, no politician other than Newt Gingrich has done more to debase our discourse than has President Trump, and that no one has benefited more from it.

Georgia residents are recognizing what President Donald Trump has done for the United States, and most likely, they'll choose GOP candidate Karen Handel in Tuesday's special election Sen.

Trump weighed in as polls show the special election, the most expensive House race in US history, as a virtual dead heat. But this right-of-center district was last represented by a Democrat in 1979, and Republicans clearly put a high value on extending that streak, to the tune of millions of dollars.

Russia , a record low 63rd in FIFA's world rankings, face Portugal on Wednesday while New Zealand play Mexico the same day. Smolov had an effort ruled out for offside before the opening goal arrived just after the half-hour mark.

Democrats and liberal activists nationally are hoping to show they can flip the 24 GOP-held seats they would need to reclaim a House majority next November.

Stretching from east Cobb County to north DeKalb County, the district was drawn to favor Republicans. Brandon Beach, a Republican whose district includes part of the terrain being fought on here.

Handel has tried to keep her distance, but Trump can't seem to help himself.

Handel says the Senate can make improvements, but she'd have voted for the House-passed version. The Roswell, Georgia, resident sees Ossoff as a charlatan, campaigning as a moderate but certain to become a marionette of his national party. More than 120,000 people have already voted, almost a quarter of all registered voters in the district.

In the first round of voting, Ossoff won a commanding majority of the early vote - propelling him to almost win the U.S. House seat outright over a scattered GOP field.

Handel, Ossoff call on help in final days of Georgia race
On Monday, House Majority Kevin McCarthy became the latest GOP leader to join Handel campaigning in the suburban Atlanta district. She said voters "know me" from stints as secretary of state and commission chairman of Georgia's most populous county.

Ossoff and Handel will both be looking to get out their base and target those primary voters who have yet to make a pick in Tuesday's runoff. And the attention is all the more intense given Republicans held on to House seats in Montana and Kansas earlier this spring and are expected to hold a SC seat on Tuesday.

But he said there's a "sweet spot" for Handel with a more traditional level of turnout in the middle of those two extremes.

In the history of awful endorsements, Trump's endorsement of Karen Handel has to be one of the worst. A political action committee aligned with House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (D-Wis.) has been particularly active.

Ossoff said Friday on MSNBC that he has built a coalition of "Democrats, independents and Republicans".
