Georgia GOP Leader: Scalise Shooting Will Win Us Tuesday's House Election

Perdue defended Trump as "a true populist", but acknowledged that even "some Republicans" are "turned off" by the president.

For Handel, Ossoff's "values are 3,000 miles away in San Francisco", the hometown of House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi. It's elected Republicans since 1978, from eventual Speaker Newt Gingrich to Trump's Health Secretary Tom Price, who resigned in February to join the administration. The President rambled so much that he couldn't fit her whole name into the tweet, which speaks volumes about Trump's lack of discipline and inability to organize his thoughts. In a political environment where every Congressional seat counts, this hotly-contested race has recently seen Ossoff building a moderate lead that has narrowed slightly, thereby ensuring that the election could be a squeaker for the state's sixth district.

But it's a different story in Georgia, where political neophyte Jon Ossoff, a Democrat, is running against Republican Karen Handel for the seat vacated by Rep. Tom Price when he became Secretary of Health and Human Services.

"Democrats saw an opportunity, so they went all in", said Randy Evans, a Republican National Committeeman from Georgia.

Georgia 6th Congressional District hopeful Jon Ossoff is getting help from a fellow Democrat who also tried to pull an upset in Republican territory.

Missouri's Secretary of State Jason Kander is campaigning with him.

State-run Tasnim News stated that Saudi Arabia fired on a fishing boat that had been forced by the waves into the area. They headed at speed towards platforms of Saudi oil field of Marjan.

Mr Trump has celebrated his party's previous special election victories, and on Monday he tweeted out support for the Republican candidate in Georgia. The race has involved some $50 million in spending on both sides, making it the most expensive race in congressional history.

Handel has reacted angrily to Ossoff's assertions, emotionally telling the story of her sister, who she describes as being born with a severe birth defect requiring considerable medical attention.

He was in Atlanta's northern suburbs Monday knocking on doors and campaigning with Ossoff ahead of his Tuesday runoff matchup with Republican Karen Handel.

On Russia, Handel has dismissed the mounting questions about Trump's interactions with law enforcement officials as "noise" but said she supports letting "the facts take us where the facts take us". She broadly endorsed Trump's loose outlines for tax cuts; he's said any plan must be "fiscally responsible".

Handel has raised more than $5 million, putting her far behind Ossoff, but she has been boosted by outside groups that have spent more than $11 million on her behalf. While Ossoff has raised far more money for the race than his Republican rival, Handel has benefited from over $10 million in investments - almost all of which has gone towards attack ads - from GOP entities that have intervened since the first round of balloting in April.
