Now that Tom Price has, unfortunately, been confirmed for his position in Trump’s Cabinet, his house in the US House of Representatives is open. A special election is being held April 18 to determine who the new Rep for the 6th Congressional District of Georgia will be. Jon Osseff is a former staffer for Rep.

That means that the Democrats have a real chance of taking this seat with enough support and visibility.
Help show Washington that Trump’s agenda is already losing by flipping the first seat in the House back to a Democrat mere months after his inauguration.
