And that's a big contrast to the Democrat who doesn't even live in the district. Next, she became Georgia secretary of state in 2007, a role in which she carried out the usual Republican attacks on voting before resigning to run for governor in 2010, losing a Republican primary run-off despite Sarah Palin and Mitt Romney endorsements.

Ryan's most notable failure came over the last few months when he was unable to bring his party - and the Republican president - together to achieve the repeal of Obamacare, something they have been promising to do for almost a decade.

"You're looking at the top Republican vote-getter, y'all", said Handel, to cheers, claiming her spot in the slimmed down race a little after 11 p.m.

"National Right to Life is pleased to endorse Karen Handel, whose position on life reflects the true values of Georgia's voters", said Karen Cross, National Right to Life political director. Trump had criticized Ossoff in the days leading up to the race and tweeted after the results were in.

Spicer later during Wednesday's press conference revisited the issue, insisting it is a "loss" because Democrats announced they wanted to win. A Republican has held the seat since 1979, and Price won 62 percent of the vote in November.

High-risk pools are insurance pools for patients with preexisting conditions subsidized by the government. He shrugged off the recent failure of the GOP health-care bill by saying the law is "exploding" anyway.

Trump earned the lowest percentage of votes compared to any other Republican presidential candidate in recent history with 48.3 percent. "Bring it on!" he said. Republican Karen Handel, 55, a former Georgia secretary of state, won 19.8 percent, and will face Ossoff in the June 20 runoff. But it will require picking up more than 20 seats and winning over droves of voters like those in the affluent, well-educated 6th District of Georgia.

Further, Handel told the program that she and Ossoff have "very different values and very different life experiences". "We got stuck with Trump", he said.

An Ossoff win would not tip the balance of power in the Republican-controlled House but could weaken Trump's already shaky hold on his party there by encouraging those in competitive districts to distance themselves from him. "He's a Republican president".

However, while they did make impressive strides in traditionally Republican districts, they have yet to prove they can win federal elections in the era of Trump. The California Democrat remains an unpopular figure in the district. He also raised more than $8 million from party donors keen to send a message to Trump and the Republican Party at large ahead of the 2018 midterm elections - which will take place if Trump's approval rating continues to go down.
