Republican Karen Handel wins key Georgia election
Republican Karen Handel has won a closely contested congressional race, salvaging a seat in conservative US state of Georgia where Democrats had hoped to strike a blow against Donald Trump's presidency.
Returns showed Handel, a former Georgia secretary of state, winning about 52 percent of the vote over Democrat Jon Ossoff, who won nearly 48 percent in Georgia's 6th Congressional District.
