President Trump took to Twitter early Tuesday to promote Republican Karen Handel in the closely watched special election runoff in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District.

“KAREN HANDEL FOR CONGRESS. She will fight for lower taxes, great healthcare strong security-a hard worker who will never give up! VOTE TODAY,” Trump tweeted.

“Democrat Jon Ossoff, who wants to raise your taxes to the highest level and is weak on crime and security, doesn't even live in district,” he added.

Trump’s shadow has loomed large over the race as voters cast their ballots on Tuesday.

The president on Monday urged voters to select Republicans in Georgia and South Carolina races, saying Democrats have “no ideas.”

“Big day tomorrow in Georgia and South Carolina. ObamaCare is dead. Dems want to raise taxes big! They can only obstruct, no ideas. Vote ‘R,’” he tweeted.
