President Donald Trump took to Twitter on Monday to lash out against the Democratic candidate for Georgia's open House seat, accusing him of being soft on crime and wanting to raise taxes.

Trump is referring to Jon Ossoff, a documentary filmmaker and former Capitol Hill staffer, who is running for Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price's vacant House seat in the Georgia 6th, a typically Republican district. FiveThirtyEight estimates Ossoff will win the most votes in Tuesday's special election, but will have to endure a runoff with one of four GOP candidates.

Democrats are working hard to win what they see as a chance to flip a red district blue.

According to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, 95 percent of Ossoff's $8.3 million in donations came from out of state. The party even won the support of actor Samuel L. Jackson, who urged voters to "stop Donald Trump" in a radio ad for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.

"There's a special congressional election on April 18. What can you do? Go vote! Your vote goes a long way towards setting things right in this country. Vote for the Democratic Party," Jackson said.

The ad will run on radio stations in Atlanta through Tuesday.
