Thomas Jonathan Ossoff (born February 16, 1987)[1] is an American politician and investigative journalist.[2] He is the Democratic nominee for the 2020 Georgia Senate election, running against Republican incumbent Senator David Perdue.[3] Neither candidate reached the 50% threshold, triggering a run-off election on January 5, 2021.[4]

Ossoff was the Democratic Party nominee for Congress in the historically expensive 2017 special election in Georgia’s 6th congressional district, which had long been considered a Republican stronghold. After finishing first but without a majority in the all-party primary election, he lost the runoff with 48.2% of the vote to Republican Karen Handel‘s 51.8%.
