President Trump on Wednesday morning criticized Democrats for “failing” to win the House special election in Georgia that took place Tuesday evening, characterizing the race as “Hollywood vs. Georgia.”
“Dems failed in Kansas and are now failing in Georgia,” Trump wrote on Twitter Wednesday morning. “Great job Karen Handel! It is now Hollywood vs. Georgia on June 20th.”
Trump had tweeted the night before congratulating Republicans for keeping Democrat Jon Ossoff below 50 percent of the vote.
“Despite major outside money, FAKE media support and eleven Republican candidate, BIG ‘R’ win with runoff in Georgia,” the President tweeted. “Glad to be of help!”
Ossoff fell short of getting the majority of the vote in Tuesday’s special election and will face off with Republican Karen Handel in a runoff on June 20. The two candidates are running for the seat vacated by House and Human Services Secretary Tom Price.
