Donald Trump has heaped praise on Republican Karen Handel after she won a special election runoff in Georgia, and celebrated a string of GOP wins.
The president fired off a flurry of tweets on Tuesday night after Handel defeated her upstart Democratic challenge Jon Ossoff 52-48.
The margin was much lower than when Trumps' Secretary for Health and Human Services Tom Price won the 6th District last year, when he was re-elected with a 24 point buffer.
'Congratulations to Karen Handel on her big win in Georgia 6th. Fantastic job, we are all very proud of you!' he tweeted after the result was confirmed.
Earlier, he wrote, 'Things are looking great for Karen H!' and: 'Thank you @FoxNews "Huge win for President Trump and GOP in Georgia Congressional Special Election."'
