The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is spending an additional $2 million to back Jon Ossoff in the Georgia House special election, The Hill reported.

Ossoff is facing Republican Karen Handel in the June 20 runoff.

The latest campaign expenditure by the DCCC brings its total spending to nearly $5 million four weeks before the election.

About $1.5 million of the new funds will be spent on television advertising according to The Hill. The remainder is earmarked for African-American radio and newspaper ads and get-out-the-vote efforts,

"This significant surge of investments will highlight the stark contrast between Secretary Karen Handel, a big spending career politician, and Jon Ossoff, an independent voice with a strong vision for Atlanta's future," said DCCC Chairman Ben Ray Luján, D-N.M.

"We're excited to continue supporting Jon's dynamic and exciting campaign in notable and smart ways."

Politico reported the election will be the most expensive House race in history.

Candidates and groups have aired or reserved more than $29.7 million worth of TV ads in the race to see who will replace Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price in Congress, Politico noted.
