President Trump called Democratic candidate Jon Ossoff “super liberal” in a tweet Monday morning, one day before Georgia holds a key election for a congressional seat left vacant by Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price.
Ossoff is the state’s leading candidate for the Democratic party in the election. He has based his campaign on the foundation that voters in the state do not agree with Trump’s policies, having frequently blasted the president.
It’s possible for Ossoff to win on Tuesday if he gets the majority of the ballots. If not, the top two candidates following Tuesday will face off in June.
“The super Liberal Democrat in the Georgia Congressioal [sic] race tomorrow wants to protect criminals, allow illegal immigrants and raise taxes!” Trump tweeted.

The election has received millions of dollars in donations from across the board. Experts say Ossoff’s best chance of winning is on Tuesday.
