Polls show a 30-year-old former Congressional aide leading the pack, while 17 other candidates divvy up the vote…
Early voting is underway in a closely watched Congressional race in Georgia. The governor called for a special election on April 18 to fill the vacancy left by now-Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price.
The special election is a so-called “jungle primary” format, which requires a runoff between the top two vote-getters should no candidate garner 50 percent of the vote in the primary.
Topping the polls right now in GA-06 is Jon Ossoff, a 30-year-old former Democratic congressional aide and documentary filmmaker, who clocked in at about 40 percent in a recent Fox 5 poll. Former Georgia Secretary of State Karen Handel was next at 20 percent.
The race features no fewer than 18 candidates, many of whom may be divvying up the Republican vote in the traditionally GOP-leaning district, including former Johns Creek City Councilman Bob Gray (10 percent), State Sen. Judson Hill (10 percent) and former State Sen. Dan Moody (8 percent).
Actress Alyssa Milano, perhaps best known for her role as Samantha on the TV series “Who’s the Boss?” is supporting Ossoff and driving early voters to the polls:

Earlier this month, NTK Network obtained exclusive footage of Ossoff praising public schools, but found Ossoff didn’t list any American public schools on his campaign website.
