Biden, Harris to campaign in Georgia in final push to win Senate


#President-elect #Joe #Biden and #Vice #President-elect #Kamala #Harris will return to #Georgia just days before the runoff races on #Tuesday to campaign for the #Democratic candidates in their final push to win control of the #Senate.

#Biden will visit #Atlanta on #Monday to campaign for #Jon #Ossoff and #Raphael #Warnock, the #Democratic candidates, and #Harris will rally for them on #Sunday in #Savannah. #This will be the second visit to the state for both the president-elect and vice president-elect to campaign for the runoffs.

#Biden will be in #Georgia the same day as outgoing #President #Donald #Trump, who is scheduled to hold a campaign rally in #Dalton on #Monday night for #Republican #Sens. #Kelly #Loeffler and #David #Perdue.

The #Georgia runoffs will determine which party controls the #Senate next year and will shape what #Biden is able to accomplish and perhaps who he is able to get confirmed to serve in his new administration. #Democrats need to win both contests to take control of the #Senate.

The campaign visits from #Biden and #Trump come as coronavirus relief has taken center stage in the race.

#Loeffler and #Perdue announced #Tuesday they supported #Trump’s push for $2,000 stimulus checks after #Democrats had hammered them for weeks over #Congress’ inability to provide meaningful relief at a time when millions have lost their jobs.

#More than 2 million #Georgians have voted early, shattering turnout records for a runoff.

#Biden won #Georgia in the 2020 election by less than a percentage point, becoming the first #Democratic presidential candidate to prevail in the state since 1992.
