The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee hit the panic button Monday in a fundraising email warning activists that the early-voting tallies are making them “nervous” about their chances of winning the special election Tuesday in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District.

“Breaking: Georgia Democrats’ early vote lead PLUNGES,” the email read. “We’re nervous. Republicans just had their best day yet — and turned out more voters in Georgia than Democrats did on Friday.”

“It’s a crushing blow to our efforts to hand Trump a MASSIVE Loss,” the email said.

Polls have shown Democrat Jon Ossoff has a solid lead in the crowded race to replace Tom Price, who became Mr. Trump’s health secretary.

Mr. Ossoff, though, needs to collect 50 percent of the vote to win the seat outright Tuesday. Otherwise, the top two vote-getters will face off in a June 20 runoff.

In the email, the DCCC said if the party cannot get “every Democrat” to the polls then the party can kiss goodbye the chances of flipping control of the seat.
