In a Monday night tweet, President Trump urged Georgia and South Carolina residents to vote Republican in Tuesday’s special elections because Democrats have “no ideas.”

“Big day tomorrow in Georgia and South Carolina,” Trump tweeted.

Tuesday’s special election in Georgia is a hotly contested matchup between Democrat Jon Ossoff and Republican Karen Handel.

It has become the most expensive House race in history.

Ossoff’s campaign has grown massively, encompassing more than 12,000 volunteers, and the race to fill the congressional seat vacated by Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price is nearly deadlocked heading into Tuesday.

Trump tweeted about the Georgia election earlier Monday, calling out Ossoff for not living in the 6th Congressional District.  

Voters in South Carolina’s 5th District will also head to the polls on Tuesday in a special election to fill the seat of Mick Mulvaney, who was chosen by Trump as the director of the Office of Management and Budget. Republican candidate Ralph Norman has a solid lead in the polls in that race over Democratic challenger Archie Parnell.
