Handel’s supporters rejoiced with cheers and sighs of relief after the most expensive congressional race in U.S. history, costing more than $50 million.
Handel said Ossoff was gracious and thanked her for a "spirited campaign" when he called her to concede.
“We may have some different beliefs, but we are part of one community, the community of the 6th District,” Handel said. “My pledge is to be part of the solution: to focus on governing, to put my experience to work in helping to solve the very serious issues we’re facing in this country.”
The race was called for Handel around 10:15 p.m. Tuesday.
