Jon Ossoff is contesting for the Senate seat in Georgia against David Perdue (R).
Ossoff was a candidate in the 2017 special election to represent Georgia's 6th Congressional District. He was defeated by Republican Karen Handel on June 20, 2017, by a margin of approximately 3 points. The race was the most expensive in U.S. history and Ossoff raised more than $23 million in his attempt to flip the historically red district.
Ossoff graduated from Georgetown University's School of Foreign Service with a Bachelor of Science degree. He attended classes taught by former secretary of state Madeleine Albright and former Israeli ambassador to the United States Michael Oren. Ossoff earned a Master of Science degree from London School of Economics in 2013. Since then, Ossoff has been managing partner and CEO of Insight TWI, a small business which produces investigations targeting corrupt officials and organized crime for international news organizations. Ossoff entered the 2020 Senate race in September 2019 with the endorsement of civil rights icon Rep. John Lewis. He has made fighting inequality and corruption a core part of his message.
According to the latest polls, Ossoff is currently trailing David Perdue by 3 percentage points. He currently has about 20% of the cash on hand versus his opponent.
