The White House is suggesting that a Republican win in Georgia's special House election on Tuesday was a personal victory for President Donald Trump.

White House spokeswoman Lindsay Walters told reporters aboard Air Force One that Karen Handel's win serves as proof that "the American people are resonating with the president's agenda" and want to see his agenda enacted.

Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue is echoing that message. He says the vote shows people want Congress to move forward with Trump's plans.

The president traveled to Iowa for an evening campaign-style rally at Kirkwood Community College. He returned to Washington late Wednesday.

The Georgia race was seen by many as an early referendum on Trump.
