It didn't quite work. And perhaps more significantly, Georgia Democrats have a poor record historically in two-party runoff elections (for example, Democrat Jim Martin lost to Republican Saxby Chambliss by almost 15 points in a 2008 Senate runoff).

Georgia's special election to replace former House Rep.

Ms Handel received a little over 19 per cent of the vote on Tuesday.

But Ossoff's haul fell short of the majority threshold required to outright win, despite him getting support from prominent Democrats and celebrities and attracting millions of dollars in outside donations. He raised over $8 million, compared with Handel's roughly $460,000.

The poster at rightscoop.com commented on the discussion: "I love how confident Handel is during the interview and how she quickly points out to the CNN host that the Republicans combined got 52 percent of the vote, so if there had only been one Republican, Ossoff would have "lost his Oss". "We have defied the odds. shattered expectations", Ossoff told supporters, adding that they'd "carry us to victory" in June. Or will Democrats regard it as a disappointment given the flawless storm of factors that seemed to be lining up in Ossoff's favor for Tuesday's vote?

With just two candidates in the race, Republicans are vowing to close ranks behind Handel's candidacy.

The senators' letter further details that the action is leaving farmers with hard decisions about the future of their farms. Dick Kimball, Chautauqua County Farm Bureau president, said Canada's actions won't impact local milk.

"I think it's overstated the effect that what is going on in Washington has on a local race like this, where local issues are the most important thing to voters", Ossoff said.

"Voters are rejecting Trump and his policies, especially the highly unpopular GOP-led health care repeal proposals like Trumpcare", MoveOn executive director Anna Galland said in a statement.

Ossoff is sounding equally confident. One week ago, Republican Ron Estes defeated Democrat James Thompson in Kansas' fourth congressional district by a margin of less than seven percentage points.

The result Tuesday night tees up another hard-fought contest in June likely to draw even more national interest. "MoveOn members are fired up - and if Ossoff doesn't top 50 percent tonight, we're ready to help him finish this race with a victory in June".

After spending the morning playing up the non-win of Georgia Democrat Jon Ossoff, ABC and CBS continued to play their game of spin-the-story Wednesday evening. The young Democrat named his first official fundraiser "make Trump furious".

"It's a choice between the views and values of a proven, independent and conservative leader who has delivered for the people of this district and this state or a Democrat who Nancy Pelosi hopes is going to deliver for her", Handel said.
