TRANSCRIPT: Karen Handel's victory statement in 6th congressional district

Handel defeated Jon Ossoff in the 6th congressional district on Tuesday.

Here is Karen Handel's statement following her victory tonight in Georgia’s 6th congressional district special election:

"I am truly humbled by tonight’s results and I am honored to represent this great district in the United States House of Representatives. I will ensure the conservative legacy and leadership of Tom Price, Johnny Isakson and Newt Gingrich will continue. I want to thank all of my steadfast supporters who worked so hard and also my opponent Jon Ossoff, who ran a spirited campaign and I want to thank him for his commitment to public service.

"These are challenging times in our nation. We are facing real and serious issues – from terrorism, protecting our borders to curtailing government spending. Tonight, voters recognized these are times that call for someone who brings real experience – in career and in life.

"I know this has been a hard- fought election and I give Georgians this promise, I will work together with anyone who wants to create a better path forward for Georgia families and I will fight each and every day to make your lives better."
