Why a Race In Georgia Could Shape Up To Be a Referendum On Trump’s Presidency
Why a race in Georgia could shape up to be a referendum on Trump’s presidency
Whether they’re Democrats or Republicans, election watchers probably have Georgia on their minds. The most expensive House race in U.S. history ends with the voting Tuesday night in a special election in North Atlanta billed as a referendum on Donald Trump’s presidency.
Polls have Democrat Jon Ossoff and Republican Karen Handel in a virtual dead heat.
The outcome in Georgia’s 6th congressional district — wealthy, conservative, suburban territory that’s remained Republican red since Newt Gingrich won his House seat there in 1979 — could portend a political shift among moderate Republicans and Democrats keen to send a message to the White House.
