Pro-Life Group Endorses Karen Handel in Georgia Congressional Runoff

Malita Javier | 21 Abril, 2017, 01:43

Republican Karen Handel and Democrat Jon Ossoff will meet in a runoff for a greater Atlanta congressional seat with national implications.

Ryan's most notable failure came over the last few months when he was unable to bring his party - and the Republican president - together to achieve the repeal of Obamacare, something they have been promising to do for almost a decade.

DUNWOODY, Ga. (AP) - A narrow miss by a Democratic newcomer in a conservative Georgia House district has triggered a high-stakes runoff that could test President Donald Trump's influence and the limits of the backlash against him.

Having Trump in the race would likely be welcomed by Democrats, who have energized volunteers on behalf of Ossoff due to their disdain for the president. Republicans have controlled the seat for decades, but Trump only won it by 1 percentage point in last November's presidential election.

FDA further restricts pain medication use in kids
Tramadol is not approved for any uses in children, but it is commonly prescribed off-label to children anyway. The FDA also said breastfeeding women shouldn't take them because of possible harm to the baby.

Trump apparently called Handel Wednesday morning to congratulate her, according to a muted tweet she sent out.

Democrats, searching for answers at a time when they are shut out of power in Washington, found a unifying figure in Ossoff, a 30-year-old documentary filmmaker who campaigned on a promise to "Make Trump Furious".

Special elections will hold particular importance for Democrats this year, as Republicans now control both the House and Senate. Mr. Ossoff now goes to a June 20 runoff.

"Handel's challenge is to mobilise supporters of the other Republicans. It is now Hollywood vs. Georgia on June 20th", Trump wrote, alluding to celebrity donors to Ossoff.

OSCE report on referendum 'baseless — EU Minister
Erdogan lashed back at the worldwide monitors' initial findings, telling them to "know their place", Reuters reported. Demonstrations have been held across Turkey to protest the YSK decision to consider the unstamped ballots valid.

Trump repeatedly attacked Ossoff's record before the vote, saying he would be a "disaster" in Congress. "No, they lost!" Spicer said.

DuBose Porter, chairman of the Georgia Democratic Party, said the district offers the ideal setting for Democrats to prove their momentum heading into 2018.

The runoff victor will succeed Republican Tom Price, who resigned to join Trump's administration as health secretary.

Ossoff benefited from a large Republican field of 11 candidates, some of whom emphasized their loyalty to Trump while others kept their distance.
