Biden to campaign in Georgia on same day as Trump ahead of pivotal Senate elections


#President-elect #Joe #Biden will campaign in #Georgia the day before the #Jan. 5 #Senate runoff races there, the same day #President #Trump is scheduled to hold a rally for #Sens. #David #Perdue and #Kelly #Loeffler.

#Vice #President-elect #Kamala #Harris will also visit the #Peach #State on #Jan. 3 as she and #Biden stump for the incumbents’ #Democratic opponents, #Jon #Ossoff and #Raphael #Warnock.

#Details aren’t yet clear on when the #Biden rally will happen, but it could present a remarkable split-screen of the current president and the president-elect campaigning simultaneously in the same state during a time that’s usually pretty quiet in the political world.

“#It really feels like we’re at the center of the political universe and will be until #Jan. 5,” #Atlanta #Press #Club #Debate #Committee #Chair #Maria #Saporta told #Fox #News earlier this month ahead of the debate between #Loeffler and #Warnock.

DEMOCRATS SEIZE ON MCCONNELL’S STIMULUS BLOCK IN GEORGIA RUNOFF

#Harris’ event will be in #Savannah. #Biden will travel to #Atlanta on #Jan. 4.

The visits from the president-elect and vice president-elect underscore the stakes of the #Georgia #Senate races — control of the upper chamber and how much say #Republicans will have in the #Biden administration’s agenda.

#If #Democrats win both #Georgia races, they will bring the body to an effective 50-50 tie, allowing #Harris to break ties on votes that fall along party lines.

#Biden and #Harris have each made online fundraising pitches for the #Democratic candidates but have only visited the #Peach #State once each during the runoff campaigns. The president-elect in his rally earlier this month predicted that #Georgians would “shock the nation” with record turnout for the runoffs.

“I think #Georgia is going to shock your nation with a number of people who vote on #January the fifth,” #Biden said. “#We got a lot of work to do. #And I plan to get to work right away doing it. I need two senators in the state who want to get something done. #Not two senators who are going to get in the way.”

#Trump, meanwhile, has lauded the GOP senators #Loeffler and #Perdue ahead of what will be his second visit to #Georgia to stump for them next week.

“#On behalf of two GREAT #Senators, @sendavidperdue & @KLoeffler, I will be going to #Georgia on #Monday night, #January 4th., to have a big and wonderful RALLY,” #Trump said in a tweet earlier this week. “#So important for our #Country that they win!”

#Vice #President #Pence has visited #Georgia several times during the runoff race but no event for him in the final week has been announced yet. #Members of the #Trump family, including #Donald #Trump #Jr., have also visited #Georgia previously, as have many GOP senators.

#Loeffler campaign #Communications #Director #Stephen #Lawson teased a number of yet-to-be-announced high-profile speakers for the final week of the campaign in a conversation with #Fox #News earlier this week about the final sprint to the culmination of what’s been a very long election cycle.

“#This is it. #It all comes down to this,” #Lawson said.
