Around 9 a.m., the president tweeted that Democrats "failed" in the Kansas race and "are now failing in Georgia".
Most election observers expected a late night of vote counting, with a race that could be decided by a single point or less.
It appears that Ossoff's final vote tally will be as drastic an improvement over previous Democratic congressional candidate similar as that seen by the Democratic candidate in last week's special election in Kansas.
An Ossoff win would not tip the balance of power in Washington but could weaken the already shaky hold Trump has on his fellow Republicans by encouraging lawmakers to distance themselves from him. Ossoff ended up with 48 percent of the voted, lower than the clear marjority he would have needed for an outright win.
The race will move to a runoff election on June 20, 2017. Republican Karen Handel, 55, a former Georgia secretary of state, won 19.8 percent, and will face Ossoff in the June 20 runoff. Judson Hill. Polls showed the GOP leaders closely bunched together, though Handel was considered a slight favorite. The district is a longtime Republican stronghold-a Democrat hasn't represented Georgia's 6th since before the current leading democratic candidate was born.
The victor in Georgia will succeed Republican Tom Price, who resigned to join Trump's administration as health secretary.

Before Tom Marino, the most recent representative from Pennsylvania's 10th Congressional district was a Democrat.
Democrats saw an opportunity, and soon the national party, as well as liberal grassroots groups, rallied around Ossoff, pouring upwards of $8 million into his campaign.
While Ossoff declared "a victory for the ages", President Trump claimed a win for Republicans, who combined to win 50.5 percent of the votes. "This is a case of Democratic Party supporters taking a shot at Donald Trump; they can't because that election is over, so they take a shot at the party instead", the political scientist told The Straits Times over the phone. Ossoff, she says, is Pelosi's "hand-picked" candidate. "That way we can cut spending and get our economy back on track and keep America safe". Ossoff benefited from a fractured Republican field of 11 candidates. "But the possibility to ‶#FlipThe6th", which became a trending hashtag on Twitter the night of the election, has resulted in millions of dollars in donations being funnelled to Ossoff's campaign. But if he pulls it off, Simas says, success could buoy other Democrats.
President Trump took credit for helping to block Democrat John Ossoff from getting an outright win in a congressional special election in Georgia. GOP Rep.
