Candidates make final push in Georgia House race

High-stakes referendum on Trump takes shape in a Georgia special election

Trump slams Democrats for stalling his legislative agenda

An Ossoff win would be a proof point suggesting that Democrats are on the right track. But if Republicans hold on and win in a district they have held since the Carter administration, it might signal that the Democratic resistance to Trump isn't as strong as the hype.

Mr Carver, the Republican Party chairman in Georgia's 11th Congressional District, told the Post "the shooting is going to win this election for us".

On Tuesday's ballot, Handel will be up against Democrat Jon Ossoff, as the two vie for the seat formerly occupied by Trump's Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price. We've got you covered. Ossoff called Rep. Steve Scalise's shooting a "national tragedy" that should not be politicized.

"I think it's a bad thing to say", Collins said.

In that SC race, largely neglected by the media and national Democrats, Republican Ralph Norman is running against Democrat Archie Parnell, in the heavily Republican 5 congressional district, where 39,270 people voted in the Republican primary, compared with 18,709 who voted in the Democrat primary.

'For any group to use the shootings this week for political or personal benefit is shameful, ' said her spokeswoman Kate Constantini.

The suspect, identified as James T Hodgkinson, allegedly opened fire on Republican lawmakers as they practised for an annual congressional charity baseball game.

He's referring to last week's shooting in Alexandria, Va.

"I look at it as a midterm election where the president's party is tired and may not be as motivated", Swint said. 'Because moderates and independents in this district are exhausted of left-wing extremism'.

Voters in Georgia will decide the most expensive USA congressional race ever today, a US$60 million (RM256.95 million) political brawl where a Democratic novice could score an upset in a conservative stronghold and strike a blow against Donald Trump's presidency.

"No, Chris. Let me be crystal clear so you completely understand: We have not received nor are we aware of any investigation of the president of the United States", Sekulow said. Moderates and independents out there want to give him a chance. The race also highlighted a battle within the Democratic party as it decides how liberal it wants to be - one familiar to the party rift between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders supporters in 2016 presidential election.

"It's not going to be a blowout".

The ad, which includes an image of USA comedian Kathy Griffin holding a fake severed head that looks like Mr Trump, claims "these same leftists are all for Ossoff, and he wins, they win".

Turnout in Tuesday's election is expected to be high.

On Friday, a WSB poll of 800 likely voters found Ossoff leading Handel 49.7 percent to 48 percent.

The most expensive House race in American history has turned out quite a bit of television and radio ads, and a new ad paid by a GOP PAC against Ossoff is possible the most sad, despicable attack ad we have seen in quite a while.
