Georgia is holding a special election today to fill the seat of former Congressmember Tom Price, who is now the secretary of health and human services. With 18 candidates in the field, one of the leading contenders is 30-year-old Democrat Jon Ossoff, whose campaign slogan is “Make Trump Furious.” The race is considered a test to see how much voters may have turned on President Trump, who has record-low support. Last Tuesday in Kansas, Republican Ron Estes won a congressional seat in a special election in a surprisingly close vote for a heavily conservative district. Estes beat Democratic challenger James Thompson by a slim 53-46 margin, in a district that Donald Trump carried by 27 percentage points last November.
