Dems look for Trump rebuke in Georgia special election
The Hill by Ben Kamisar --
President Trump and the left-wing resistance to his White House will clash Tuesday in a Georgia special election with huge implications for the GOP agenda in Congress.
A dream scenario for liberals would be a knockout blow in which Democrat Jon Ossoff clears 50 percent in Tuesday’s primary battle with 17 other candidates — including 11 GOP candidates — to replace Health and Human Services secretary Tom Price in the seat and win a district Republicans have held for decades.
That would be a huge boost for Democrats and a blow to Trump and House Republicans, who have already seen some negative signs that could foreshadow next year’s midterm elections.
