Democrat Jon Ossoff narrowly missed winning a Congressional seat outright in Georgia's traditionally conservative 6th District Tuesday night. Ossoff got less than 50 percent of the vote, and in June will face Republican Karen Handel, the former secretary of state who got less than 20 percent of the vote in a crowded field of Republicans.

The race is being closely watched around the country as a bellwether of the Trump administration. Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson learns more about the results from Bradley George (@radiobkg) of Georgia Public Broadcasting.

This segment aired on April 19, 2017.
