Georgia Democrat Jon Ossoff is getting a big push ahead of his special election primary, The Hill reported.

The million-member grassroots organization Progressive Change Campaign Committee is launching a fundraising drive for Ossoff and, so far, has raised more than $34,000 for his campaign.

A win in Georgia, which voted Republican in 2016, would be big for Ossoff and Democrats.

"A Republican loss here would send a bitter rebuke to the entire Republican Party that Americans across the country do not support their radical, anti-worker agenda – and that's why thousands of PCCC members are donating or volunteering for Ossoff's campaign," PCCC press secretary Kait Sweeney said in a statement.

Democrats are hopeful Ossoff has a chance to pull off a victory, considering the results of a special election in the deep-red state of Kansas on Tuesday where James Thompson came close to beating Republican Ron Estes.

"By siding with big corporations over working families and betraying his own voters, Trump is creating an environment where even deep red districts like KS-4 and GA-6 are extremely competitive," Sweeney said in a statement.

The PCCC did not make a push in Kansas but liberal groups helped to boost fundraising totals there with the liberal blog Daily Kos raising more than $160,000 for Thompson during the final stretch.
