President Donald Trump on Monday tweeted in support of Georgia Republican candidate Karen Handel, though he couldn’t get a handle on how to spell her name.

Trump deleted his initial misspelled tweet minutes later and posted a new one with the correct spelling of Handel’s surname.

Handel, who is a former Georgia secretary of state, will face Democrat Jon Ossoff on Tuesday in a special runoff election for an open U.S. House seat.
