The 29-year-old, who runs a firm specializing in anti-corruption investigations, entered the race with endorsements from U.S. Reps. John Lewis and Hank Johnson – and this week picked up support from House Minority Leader Stacey Abrams.
He told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution he’s lined up more than $250,000 in financial commitments from supporters. And he’s raised more than $500,000 through the Daily Kos liberal advocacy site, though the numbers can’t be verified until he posts them with the Federal Elections Commission.
He’s also benefited from being in a civil rights icon’s orbit. He was with Lewis and Johnson at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport last month to protest Trump’s immigration policy, and Lewis has called on Democrats to pick Ossoff.
“We should unite behind him,” Lewis said, “and send a clear message that Donald Trump doesn’t represent our values.”
