"Don't Republicans deserve to lose GA race next week?" Drudge asked on Twitter.


Drudge's tweet comes just four days before voters in Georgia's 6th Congressional District go to the polls.

The race has grown increasingly tight, as Republicans vie to keep the seat previously held by Rep. Tom Price, who became Trump's secretary of Health and Human Services. 

The special election is widely seen as an early referendum on Trump. While the 6th District has typically been considered Republican territory, Democrats have sought to capitalize on Trump's dwindling approval ratings to turn out voters in the district.
