Latinos' View On Trump Could Be Factor in Georgia House Race

Jeffrey Lazarus is an associate professor of political science and specializes in research into legislative term limits, politicians' decisions to enter races for office, congressional conference committees, the bills members write, and pork barrel spending.

The argument made by even Trump allies, such as Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue, the state's former governor, over the weekend is that even if you don't like Trump, don't hold that against Handel.

"I love this country and I feel like the news, with the Democrats, is trying to make Donald Trump not be able to do what he needs to do", Asper said. Gianforte's win came on the heels of fellow Republican Ron Estes' April 11 win to fill Kansas' House seat left open by the appointment of CIA Director Mike Pompeo. She will fight for lower taxes, great healthcare strong security-a hard worker who will never give up!

Dolan voted for Trump in the 2016 Presidential election.

That would contrast with last April, when Fulton County could not report vote totals for several hours after polls closed in the special election in Georgia's 6th congressional district.

CNN now has Mr Ossoff leading the race by 51.2 percent to Miss Handel's 48.8 percent. He raised $23 million for his campaign, but most of that came from outside of Georgia from liberal enclaves like NY and California. Trump barely won this well-educated, affluent district in November, despite previous Republican nominees here eclipsing 60 percent.

The seat has been vacant since Trump tapped Republican Tom Price to serve as his health secretary.

On "Fox & Friends" this morning, Handel said she's neck-and-neck with Ossoff in the early voting, and she has a really good feeling about today.

He does not think the 6th Congressional District is a "one-issue" location, and said it's one that President Donald Trump won by just a few points.

Handel maintained some distance from Trump in the primary but has fully embraced his support and agenda since, including a joint fundraiser.

Handel also attacked Ossoff for not agreeing to a nationally televised debate on a cable network.

In Georgia on Tuesday, if Democrats hope for a thaw, they need to post a win.

Ossoff, a democrat, is a 30 year old former Congressional aid and documentary filmmaker. He has said the address is close to Emory University, where his fiancee attends medical school. National Republicans' House campaign arm added 4.5 million United States dollars, and the USChamber of Commerce chipped in another seven figures.

The party needs to flip at least 24 GOP-held seats by next November to reclaim a House majority.

It's been held by Republicans - including Newt Gingrich - since 1979.

When Handel exited the vehicle, dozens of Ossoff volunteers by the side of the road loudly cheered "flip the 6th" and "this is what democracy looks like". "They are not interested in Hollywood and California coming in and buying this seat". Republicans are favoured to hold a fourth seat up Tuesday in SC, while Democrats already held their lone open seat in a California special election.

His campaign has attracted more supporters than some expected.
