GEORGIA 6TH DISTRICT DEBATE
WATCH LIVE: Handel And Ossoff Debate In Race For Georgia's 6th District
The candidates for Georgia’s 6th Congressional District seat, Karen Handel and Jon Ossoff, meet in their second debate at 9 a.m. Thursday. The debate is hosted by PBA and moderated by WABE’s Denis O’Hayer.
Ossoff and Handel emerged from a dense field of candidates during the first election in April, but Ossoff, the Democratic candidate, fell short of the majority needed for an outright win.
The race has garnered national attention as a test of President Donald Trump’s popularity ahead of the 2018 midterm elections. Democrats are hoping for an upset in the district that has long been held by Republicans.
The 6th District runoff is set for June 20, but early voting has already begun. Thursday's debate will air on PBA30 at 7 p.m. Thursday and again at noon Friday.
