What It Means, and Why It Matters — Georgia's Special Election

"Now they play the same game with Georgia-BAD!" he tweeted.

Indeed, it is the preponderance of college-educated white suburban voters who aren't fond of Trump that made Georgia's sixth district a Democratic target the moment Tom Price was confirmed and resigned his seat.

Democrats have united behind 30-year-old former congressional staffer Jon Ossoff, who has been boosted by opposition to Trump and an $8 million fundraising haul. "Every piece of data we have says this thing is winnable on Tuesday".

For the special election, there 18 candidates running on one ballot: 11 Republicans, five Democrats and two independents. Judson Hill and Dan Moody.

But Ossoff and his army of volunteers smell blood in the water and want to deliver a knock-out punch on Tuesday - something the Democratic candidate said would reverberate well beyond the Northern Atlanta suburbs. Credit also needs to be given to an organization that helps Democrats campaign in more effective ways.

Political analysts are of the view that this is only the tip of the iceberg and that Republicans must heed this trend because it only indicates what the nation as a whole is feeling right now about its leaders and the party in power in the Oval Office. The eyes of the world are on us.

All 16,000 residents of Fuaa and Kafraya are expected to leave, heading to Aleppo, the coastal province of Latakia, or Damascus. He spoke on the condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media, according to the Associated Press.

In another Monday morning tweet, the president fired off a somewhat confusing post, again criticizing the media - or at least some news outlets. A stunning $14 million has been spent on advertising, most of it fueled by out-of-state money.

Estes ultimately won his race by just 7 points, a shockingly low lead in an area where Republicans outnumber Democrats 2-to-1.

If you are like Moulton and have only seen a few ads for this race, odds are good that they have mentioned Democratic frontrunner and investigative filmmaker Jon Ossoff. A lot of them were older women.

Christina Ferguson, 64, is from Sandy Springs and said she hasn't gotten involved politically since the 1960s and the Vietnam War era. It is one of four special elections in which a red seat is up for grabs, vacated by a Trump nominee. "I never thought that Trump was a viable candidate".

SUAREZ: Jessica, could Ossoff win this outright Tuesday, 50 percent plus one?

"There is concern that our political leadership is not demonstrating the kind of decency, humility, compassion and patriotism that Americans expect from our leaders", Ossoff said, in a rare moment of commentary on the current government. "I felt like I had to do something". Eighteen people signed on for this congressional election, and the majority weren't career politicians: The pool included two accountants and a doctor.

The survey included 453 respondents, 41 percent of which had already voted in early voting. "Vote for the Democratic Party".
