Donald Trump wades into Georgia special election

President Donald Trump on Sunday night accused news organizations of downplaying the special congressional election in Kansas after the Republican candidate won - and suggested the same will happen in the upcoming Georgia special election.

The midterm elections can seem very far away, particularly when a single day in the Trump administration-say, April 11, 2017-can bring public threats toward North Korea, the president mixing up which country, exactly, he'd dropped bombs on (that'd be Syria, not Iraq), and what sounded an terrible lot like a press secretary complimenting Hitler's use of restraint.

Mr Cobb was speaking specifically about Democrat John Ossoff, who is campaigning for Georgia's 6th congressional district.

A 30-year old Democrat is leading the race to win a seat held by Republicans for nearly 40 years. Ossoff has benefited from the state's crowded "jungle primary", in which 18 candidates are competing and Ossoff has managed to distinguish himself among the Democrats. They hope to force a June runoff with the GOP's top candidate by keeping Ossoff below 50 percent of the vote.

Republican Karen Handel, a former Georgia secretary of state, was the early favorite to emerge. National Republicans have tried to blunt his financial advantage, pouring more than $4 million of their own money into the race to try to tear Ossoff down, claiming he's embellished his resume and would vote in lock-step with national Democrats.

For almost 20 years, this loyal Democrat did what majority do: She went to the voting booth only for presidential contests and ignored everything from congressional elections to governor's races. Somehow, the ad did little to dissuade voters from considering the political novice: in the weeks since, he has risen to the head of an eighteen-candidate pack, garnering forty-five per cent of the vote in a poll released this past Friday.

The polls in the 6th District special election race will be open from 7 am to 7 pm Tuesday. Judson Hill, and former state Sen.

From the outset, Trump has loomed large in the contest. "Stop Donald Trump, a man who encourages racial and religious discrimination and sexism".

Trump did not specify which outlets are "fake" and which he considers "real". "Pretty much everything he's done worries me". A new report from social analytics company News Whip shows left-leaning, anti-Trump Facebook pages were more popular than their conservative counterparts in the month after Mr Trump took office. But he tells voters in one ad, "I'll work with anybody in Washington who respects your tax dollars".

"My closing argument is the same as my opening argument, that we need an experienced individual with a track record of delivering real results", she said as she campaigned in an upscale shopping district Monday. "I thought that the country would wake up at some point".
