Biden, Harris to hit campaign trail in Georgia in final days before Senate runoffs

#Harris and #Biden will arrive in the state #Sunday and #Monday, respectively, where they will campaign for the #Rev. #Raphael #Warnock (D) and #Jon #Ossoff (D). #Democrats need to win both seats on #Jan. 5 to gain a 50-50 split in the upper chamber, which would make #Harris the potential tie-breaker on any votes.

Their trips to #Georgia will coincide with an event #President #Trump#Donald #TrumpGeorgia signature audit finds no fraud in presidential election #Pompeo calls for release of #Chinese journalist jailed over coronavirus coverage #Pence refused to sign on to plan to overturn election, lawyers say MORE is having in the state #Monday evening as he attempts to protect the GOP #Senate majority as one of his last acts before #Biden takes office #Jan. 20.

A campaign official familiar with fundraising numbers told CNN that #Biden has also been involved in direct fundraising for the two candidates and has raised around $10 million.

#Georgia’s #Senate race has remained extremely tight, according to polls, and incumbent #Sens. #David #Perdue#David #PerduePush for ,000 stimulus checks hits #Senate buzzsaw 2.3 million people have voted in #Georgia’s #Senate runoffs with week to go #Intercept’s DC bureau chief: #McConnell was ‘quite fine’ with #Trump losing reelection MORE (R) and #Kelly #Loeffler#Kelly #LoefflerPush for ,000 stimulus checks hits #Senate buzzsaw 2.3 million people have voted in #Georgia’s #Senate runoffs with week to go #Intercept’s DC bureau chief: #McConnell was ‘quite fine’ with #Trump losing reelection MORE (R) have both faced pressure over the #Senate’s reluctance to support larger direct relief payments to millions of #Americans amid the coronavirus pandemic.

A bid to raise the payments from $600 to $2,000, supported by both senators, looks likely to die in the #Senate, where #Majority #Leader #Mitch #McConnell#Addison (#Mitch) #Mitchell #McConnellGOP senator says he’ll block consent for ,000 stimulus checks #Intercept’s DC bureau chief: #McConnell was ‘quite fine’ with #Trump losing reelection #Trump targets congressional #Republicans on multiple fronts MORE (R-Ky.) has tied the proposal to boost the payments with a package that would establish a commission into voter fraud and repeal #Section 230, a provision of law providing liability protections for websites such as #Twitter and #Facebook. #Both measures would likely be a deal-breaker for #Democrats.

#Turnout in the #Georgia runoffs is expected to rival presidential election-year levels, with some experts pointing to surges of early voting in #Democratic strongholds as a positive sign for #Democrats in the state.

#Biden won the state in #November, becoming the first #Democratic presidential candidate to win there since #President #Clinton in 1992.
