Financial figures for the contest are being released, and Mr. Ossoff has added an incredible $15 million more to his campaign treasury during the last fundraising period, bringing his total financial receipts to over $23 million. This dwarfs Republican Handel’s campaign, but adding outside support for her closes the gap. This special election campaign, where aggregate spending will easily exceed $40 million, is going to set a record for any US House contest.
Early voting numbers are being tabulated. Already more than 63,000 people have voted for the June 20th run-off. In the jungle primary, which produced just under 194,000 voters, 55,000 individuals cast their ballots before Election Day.
