Democrat upsets Republican status quo in Georgia vote
A young Democrat, Jon Ossoff, in the US state of Georgia has come very close to an upset win in a traditionally conservative congressional seat.
Atlanta's 6th congressional district has been a Republican stronghold for almost 40 years, but Ossoff will now go into a runoff vote in June with his Republican rival.
The election has been closely watched throughout the country and is widely considered to be an early popularity test for President Donald Trump.
