Trump Cabinet officers urge on Republicans in Georgia race

Parmenio Sano | 19 Giugno, 2017, 04:00

But Handel is well-known among Georgia Republicans, and national GOP groups have spent big on her behalf.

Republican Karen Handel, Democrat Jon Ossoff and their outside backers are trying any arguments that will coax any stray voters to the polls for Tuesday's special election.

Handel and the GOP super PAC Congressional Leadership Fund have worked hard to turn the race away from Trump's leadership in Washington and make it about Ossoff's youth (he is 30) and about the House Democratic leader, Nancy Pelosi.

On the Republican side, Health Secretary Tom Price and Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue, who is a former two-term Georgia governor, headed to Georgia to campaign for Handel.

Trying to stave off a major upset ahead of the 2018 midterm elections, two of President Trump's Cabinet officers returned to Atlanta's traditionally conservative suburbs and urged Republican voters to maintain the GOP's monopoly control in Washington.


"The leftists have gone and typecast, and they've picked this young man - charismatic, articulate - and they've taught him a few Republican buzzwords", Perdue told Handel supporters. "They think he can fool you".

Democrat Jon Ossoff is campaigning Saturday with civil rights icon John Lewis, an Atlanta congressman who represents the district just south of the Georgia 6th. "It's not gonna happen".

Progressives who have pumped more than $23 million into Ossoff's campaign have long viewed the race as their best chance to use a special election to deliver a political blow to Trump - and to send a message to House Republicans that aiding Trump will come at a price by capturing what for decades has been a reliably Republican seat.

Democrats and liberal activists nationally are hoping to show they can flip the 24 GOP-held seats they would need to reclaim a House majority next November.

But the district is also more conservative than some of the similar-looking targets. They argue Ossoff's near-win in the first round already bodes well for Democrats running in other suburban districts where Republicans don't start with such a fundamental advantage. Ossoff says removing that cost protection makes any guarantee of coverage "useless", because policies would become unaffordable, particularly given the Republicans' proposal to roll back premium subsidies that are a primary feature of the 2010 law.
