Karen Handel: People of Georgia's 6th Don't Want 'Nancy Pelosi's Guy'
Tuesday's special election for Georgia’s 6th District is the most expensive House race in U.S. history.
Republican Karen Handel faces Democrat Jon Ossoff in the fight for the seat vacated by Tom Price, the recently appointed Health and Human Services secretary.
On "Fox & Friends" this morning, Handel said she's neck-and-neck with Ossoff in the early voting, and she has a really good feeling about today.
Handel pointed out that the vast majority of Ossoff's donations have come from out of state, and she's confident that voters will reject the attempt to "buy" a congressional seat.
"The people of the 6th District want this to be about the 6th District," Handel said. "They are not interested in Hollywood and California coming in and buying this seat."
She pointed out that, unlike Ossoff, she actually lives in the district, and she's confident that the voters' trust in her will carry her to victory.
"Republicans are motivated," Handel said. "They do not want someone who lives outside of the district coming in and representing them. And they surely don't want Nancy Pelosi's guy coming in to try to buy this seat."
Pelosi helped raise money for Ossoff’s bid, but has not campaigned with the 30-year-old former congressional aide, The Washington Times reported.
Handel said that Ossoff may portray himself as a centrist, but he was a junior staffer for one of the most liberal members of Congress, Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA), and he actually holds liberal views along the lines of Pelosi.
"He's going to be her vote in the House," Handel said. "What the people of the 6th want is a vote for them."
Ossoff was also invited to be on the show, but he declined.
