Democrat Jon Ossoff, a 30-year-old former congressional aide fueled by a colossal fundraising haul from out-of-state donors, came within two percentage points of an outright victory Tuesday over 17 other candidates in Georgia's traditionally Republican 6th Congressional District. But there were numerous Republicans in the race, and in aggregate they secured 51 percent, compared to 49 percent for Democrats, a sign Ossoff has a challenge before him to flip the district.

In a message on his Twitter account Wednesday, the president said the June runoff election triggered by Tuesday's vote represented a battle between Ossoff and his celebrity backers, and Republican Karen Handel's local support.

"‶Tomorrow, we start the campaign anew", Handel said, according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution. "‶Beating Ossoff and holding this seat is something that rises above any one person". With 100 per cent of precincts reporting, Mr Ossoff finished far ahead with 48.1 per cent support.

Trump and top Republicans pointed to high-profile liberals and out-of-state Democratic groups funneling millions of dollars into a race showcasing their effort to nick the president and his party, only to come up short.

Just learned that Jon @Ossoff, who is running for Congress in Georgia, doesn't even live in the district.

The news also comes on a day in which Ossoff brought in a record amount of cash - $500,000 in a single day - for his runoff campaign against Handel, which is set for June 20. Handel outperformed some of her polling numbers and finished a strong second, leaving 11 other Republicans, some of whom spent more ad money, behind.

And according to Brian Fallon, the former spokesperson for failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, Ossoff's showing in Georgia's 6th district could potentially be a roadmap for the Democratic Party's strategy going forward to win over wealthy, white voters. "It runs through the Panera Breads of America", Fallon tweeted, referring to the chain coffee shop that is often present in wealthy, white suburbs.
