A pro-Trump social-media marketer has been flooding Twitter with messages and hashtags in opposition of the Democratic candidate running in Georgia's special House election, Politico reported.
Jon Ossoff is in a tight race against Republican Karen Handel for the seat in the 6th Congressional District election, which happens Tuesday.
Robert Shelton, aka @RobertsRooms on Twitter, has sent out hashtags and messages from his account and others promoting Handel and criticizing Ossoff.
Shelton told Politico via Twitter his network is working to promote Handel, but said it was strictly a personal project. He would not say how much he paid Twitter users to put out his posts.
"The only affiliation we or I have with Karen's campaign is that I live in District 06 and prefer her to Jon," Shelton wrote.
The Handel campaign said it had no ties to Shelton.
"We have not contracted with Robert, and he has no affiliation with this campaign," Handel campaign spokeswoman Kate Constantini told the media outlet.
