It is a test of GOP strength early in President Donald Trump's presidency. Democrats who were billing the special House election in Georgia as a "referendum on Donald Trump " are no doubt deeply disappointed that the Republican, the president's surrogate, won by a reasonably comfortable margin Tuesday night (June 20).
The 6th District seat has been solidly Republican, but Democrat Ossoff got 48 percent in a crowded April 18 election to almost win the seat outright and fuel Democratic optimism about repudiating Trump. Spending on the race reached at least $57 million, almost twice the previous record, according to the Center for Responsive Politics watchdog group. About four hours by auto from Atlanta, South Carolina's fifth congressional district was not considered a competitive race for Democrats.

"This is the beginning of something much bigger than us", Ossoff said. Ossoff told his supporters: 'The fight goes on'.

Spicer's comment comes the day after Jay Sekulow , a member of Trump's personal legal team, told CBS' Face the Nation that Trump would likely comment on the potential tapes by the end of the week.

The Democratic Unionist Party has indicated that it is dissatisfied with the level of progress in its negotiations with the Conservative Party ...

Ossoff, a former documentary filmmaker and congressional aide, has become a symbol of the anti-Trump movement.

President Vladimir Putin's spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Wednesday that the US move wasn't constructive, adding that "various options are being considered on expert level". White House press secretary Sean Spicer on Tuesday said the United States will continue to sanction Russian Federation until it stops backing separatists in eastern Ukraine.
