AGC-Backed Congressional Candidates Come Out on Top in Special Elections

The sixth district of Georgia saw a huge turnout of more than 200,000 voters in Tuesday evening’s match-up between Republican candidate Karen Handel and Democratic candidate Jon Ossoff. Ms. Handel, the former Georgia Secretary of State who was supported by AGC PAC, topped ex-congressional aide Jon Ossoff by a 52-48 percent margin. Ms. Handel takes Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price’s former congressional seat.
Simultaneously, over 200 miles away in central South Carolina, AGC PAC-backed Republican Ralph Norman claimed the special congressional election with a close 51-49 percent win over Democrat Archie Parnell from a small turnout of just over 87,000 voters. Norman started his career helping to build his father’s property and construction business and later moved into real estate development. Office of Management & Budget Director Mick Mulvaney left open this seat to assume his national position.
