Democrats see high stakes in Georgia’s special election

Democrats will turn their gaze south this week, hoping victory in a special election in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District will serve as a referendum on President Trump and spark their efforts to counter his agenda — and to win back the House.

Embodying those hopes is Democrat Jon Ossoff, a 30-year-old former Capitol Hill staffer who has campaigned as a moderate in the wealthy suburbs north of Atlanta and raised more than $23 million.

But despite Ossoff’s financial advantage — the showdown is the most expensive House race in history — Democrats remain on edge. Polls show the clash between Ossoff and Republican Karen Handel too close to call, and GOP candidates have prevailed in several special elections this year.
