6th CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT RACE: Four candidates could force runoff | WSB-TV Get out and vote in Georgia's 6th Tuesday 4/18/17. We will surprise the pundits and #FlipThe6th
"NORTH FULTON COUNTY, Ga. - A new WSB-Landmark Communications poll shows Democrat John Ossoff with a comfortable lead in the special election for the 6th Congressional District seat vacated by former Rep. Tom Price when he became secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services. Republican Karen Handel is a distant second, but she also leads the large field of fellow GOP candidates.
The race is an open one, meaning there is no primary and both Democrats and Republicans are running in it together. If no one wins 50 percent of the vote plus one, the top two candidates will face off in a June runoff.
The poll shows Ossoff at 45.3 percent. Handel is second at 17.4 percent. Three other Republicans are bunched together: Bob Gray at 8.6 percent, Dan Moody at 8.4 percent and Judson Hill at 8.0 percent. None of the other candidates are polling above 2.0 percent, and 7.2 percent remain undecided."
