All eyes are on the Georgia House special election Tuesday, but CNN’s Alisyn Camerota had some burning questions about the leading candidate’s personal life: namely, when he was going to propose to his longtime girlfriend.
During an interview, Camerota pressed Democratic candidate Jon Ossoff on when he would be moving into the district in which he’s running, since he currently doesn’t live there and cannot vote for himself in the race. Ossoff explained that the election was unexpected and that he lives with his girlfriend but would soon be moving back.
“Well, I grew up in this district. I grew up in this community,” he explained. “No one knew there was going to be an election coming. I have been living with Alisha, my girlfriend of 12 years, down by Emory University where she’s a full-time medical student. And as soon as she concludes her medical training, I will be back 10 minutes back up the street into the district where I grew up, but I want to support her and her career and do right by her.”
Camerota then pressed Ossoff on when he’d be popping the question to his girlfriend.
“So when are you going to marry her?” she asked.
“I think I could reasonably say that’s more a personal question,” Ossoff replied with a laugh. “I’ll give you a call when I have something to announce.”
Camerota then offered a suggestion on a proposal idea.
“Please do. Perhaps, say, an election day proposal would be good,” she said.
