And in the future, she will recuse herself when it's determined there is a conflict. And next, a special election in Georgia. Republicans have held this house seat since 1979. Several candidates now running. Millions of dollars have flooded into the race from around the country to help a little-known Democrat. But Republicans say they will win this. Here's Steve osunsami. Reporter: People on the blue team, praying that the special election turns into a revenge vote against president trump. Carrying all that weight on his shoulders, John ossoff. Finding himself leading in the polls in a crowded field that includes 11 Republicans. The seat is wildly important to the president, who barely won it in November, and raged on tw Twitter. This recorded message hit telephones today. Liberal Democrats spending millions and millions of dollars trying to take your congressional seat away from you. Don't let them do that. Reporter: Karen handle is one of the top Republicans hoping to make a runoff in June. I think the number one state is California, and I would argue that Hollywood values don't align all that well with his values. Reporter: A lot being made tonight that ossoff doesn't live in the district. Clearly, in tonight's results, both sides will be keeping score.
