You find out what someone is really like in "battle," and Olbermann is who you want to be in a foxhole with, Patrick said. "On the air, we had each others' backs," said Olbermann.

Jon Ossoff heads to runoff with big vote in Georgia House race
The Democrat narrowly missed the majority needed to avoid a runoff but got far more votes than any rival.

DEMOCRAT JON OSSOFF received a plurality of the vote in the special election to replace U.S. Rep. Tom Price in Georgia’s Sixth Congressional District, and he will advance to a runoff against Republican Karen Handel, the New York Times reports.

Ossoff narrowly missed the majority needed to win the seat outright. He had 48.3 percent of the vote with 88 percent of precincts reporting as of 1 a.m. local time Wednesday, the Times reports. Handel, his closest rival, had 19.7 percent.

There were five Democrats, 11 Republicans, and two independents in the race; with no candidate winning a majority, the top two, regardless of party, go into the runoff, to be held June 20.

Ossoff’s strong showing in what has long been a Republican district is seen by many as a wake-up call to Republicans and a sign of voters’ dislike of Donald Trump.
