Countdown to Georgia's 6th Congressional District Race

Trying to stave off a major upset ahead of the 2018 midterm elections, one of President Donald Trump's Cabinet officers returned to Atlanta's traditionally conservative suburbs and urged Republican voters to maintain the GOP's monopoly control in Washington. Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue, a former two-term Georgia governor, took sharp aim at Republican Karen Handel's opponent in Tuesday's congressional runoff election, 30-year-old Democrat Jon Ossoff, who has raised more than $23 million from people around the country hoping for a victory that could turn the tide on Trump. Polls show a tossup in Georgia's 6th Congressional District, where Republicans usually coast. Ossoff, a documentary filmmaker and former congressional aide, has aimed at the center, usually avoiding even mentioning Trump's name. But he was campaigning Saturday with civil rights icon John Lewis, the Atlanta congressman from the neighboring 5th district whose criticism of Trump recently drew a slew of presidential tweets. The candidates' choices on the final weekend of campaigning reflect their expectations of a razor-thin margin that will turn as much on core partisans as on persuading moderates and independents. The results will be seen as a measure of how voters feel about Republican leadership months into the Trump presidency. Trump barely won this well-educated, affluent district in November, despite previous Republican nominees here eclipsing 60 percent.
