ATLANTA — Democrat Jon Ossoff is running for U.S. Senate in Georgia, and will formally announce his campaign on Tuesday. Ossoff joins two other Democrats who hope to challenge incumbent U.S. Sen. David Perdue next year. Ossoff made the announcement Monday night on MSNBC’s “The Last Word With Lawrence O’Donnell.”
In his first bid for public office, Ossoff lost what became the nation’s most expensive congressional campaign in history in 2017 to Karen Handel in metro Atlanta’s 6th congressional district. Handel lost the seat last year to Democrat Lucy McBath.
