Atlanta’s Democratic Mayor Kasim Reed said Monday the Georgia House race is “within our reach.”

“I think the 6th [Congressional District] wants to send a message to President Trump that he has gone too far,” Mr. Reed said on MSNBC.

The Atlanta Democrat said he believes his party will win the House seat formerly held by Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price, but Mr. Reed also said this race will be a model for races across the country in 2018.

“[We can] take this formula and spread it across the United States to districts that are far more competitive,” the mayor said.

Mr. Reed also said that he believes Democratic candidate Jon Ossoff is “much better positioned” than Democrats in Kansas’ 4th Congressional District, which despite being surprisingly competitive, remained in Republican hands in last week’s special election.

Georgia’s race could go into a runoff if no candidate gets 50 percent of the vote on Tuesday.
