Democrat Jon Ossoff Narrowly Misses Winning GA Special Election Outright

HeadlineApr 19, 2017
H09 ossoff

In Georgia, Democrat Jon Ossoff, whose campaign slogan was "Make Trump Furious," narrowly missed winning Tuesday’s special election to fill the seat of former Congressmember Tom Price, who is now the secretary of health and human services. In the heavily Republican district, Ossoff won 48 percent of the vote, meaning he’ll face off against Republican candidate Karen Handel in a runoff in June. A 30-year-old documentary filmmaker, Ossoff had raised four times more money for his campaign than any other candidate. This is Ossoff speaking Tuesday night.

Jon Ossoff: "We have shattered expectations. ... And there is no amount of dark money, super PAC negative advertising that can overcome real grassroots energy like this."
