Jon Ossoff is running to represent Georgia in the 2020 U.S. Senate election. He is challenging incumbent Republican Senator David Perdue. Osoff was the Democratic Party nominee for Congress in the 2017 special election in Georgia's 6th congressional district. Ossoff received a B.S. from Georgetown and an M.S from the London School of Economics. Upon graduation, he worked as a film maker and congressional aide. He was CEO of Insight TWI, a small U.K.-based business that produces investigations of corrupt officials and organized crime. In 2017, after Tom Price was named HHS Secretary, Ossoff announced his candidacy for Price’s vacated office. Prior to Ossoff’s announcement, Republican Congressman Price had been re-elected in a landslide with 62% of the vote. Ossoff attracted a surge of Democrats to the polls but was defeated by the Republican candidate, 52% to 48%. Ossoff announced he would not seek the seat in the regular election in 2018, which was then won by Democrat Lucy McBath. Ossoff takes progressive positions on women's issues and health care and moderate stances on jobs and security. On infrastructure, Ossoff said, "If the administration introduces a fiscally responsible infrastructure bill, I'll work in a bipartisan way to make sure it delivers transformative solutions to Georgia." Ossoff supports reproductive rights. He has called for reduced taxes on small businesses. He supports participation in the Paris Climate Change Agreement. Ossoff advocates comprehensive immigration reform to strengthen enforcement and provide a path to citizenship. Ossoff and Alisha Kramer, an Emory University medical student, are engaged.
