Conservative PAC links Jon Ossoff to Scalise shooting in attack ad

The Republican Party chairman in Georgia's 11th Congressional District believes last week's baseball practice shooting - which left House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) critically injured - is a good luck charm for the GOP.

Now, voters will decide whether all the effort was worthwhile.

As the most expensive House race in in USA history goes into voters' hands, President Donald Trump has taken to Twitter to weigh in on the closely-watched election.

The question is whether these scores of what have historically been reliably GOP voters are separating this race from their distaste for Trump and sticking with Handel - or have been turned off more broadly by the Republican brand under Trump and are willing to back Ossoff.

Monday morning rain, with afternoon sun
Saturday , there is a 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms, with a high near 80, the weather service said. Saturday is expected to be cooler with a high near 81 amid a 50 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms.

There is another election on Tuesday, in SC, but the Republicans are expected to hold the seat, which was vacated when Mick Mulvaney became Mr Trump's budget director.

As to how onetime National Republican Congressional Committee spokesman Spicer viewed the race himself, he said: "I haven't spent a lot of time thinking about it".

The location of Kramer's school means Ossoff doesn't actually live within the district in which he's running. "And with a commitment to working across the aisle to get things done, to holding people in Washington accountable regardless of their political party, some fresh leaders can hopefully break through some of this nonsense".

But it could be a huge psychic boost for the winner's party - and a blow for the loser's. "And that's why we're so focused on getting out the vote", Ossoff said. A loss, though, would be a major disappointment.

"If he wins, they win", a voiceover says. It could also show House incumbents that they can separate themselves from Trump effectively on the campaign trail, and stave off a potential wave of retirements.

As voters in Georgia's Sixth District (suburban Atlanta) trek to the polls on Tuesday, no one on either side is betting on who will emerge as the successor to former Republican Rep. and present Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price. Mitt Romney carried the district by 23 points in 2012.

Trump won the district by 1.5 points in the November election, but his approval ratings in the area have since dwindled, giving Democrats hope that they can flip the district. Tens of millions of dollars have fueled the fierce special election campaigns, making this the priciest congressional run in history. Republicans have held the seat since 1979, when Newt Gingrich first took the seat.

Polls close in Cobb, Fulton and DeKalb counties - the three that include part of the district - at 7 p.m. ET. President Donald Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, House Speaker Paul Ryan and two members of Trump's cabinet with Georgia ties — Sonny Perdue and Tom Price — have previously campaigned with her.
