With the Georgia runoff races set to decide the balance of the US Senate on January 5th, both the right and left sides of the aisle are doing all that they can to bolster their chances at a majority in the higher chamber.
Earlier in 2020, before these two races became runoff races, the Democrats were able to get special visits from VP candidate Kamala Harris, former Vice President Joe Biden, and even No. 44 himself, Barack Obama.
The Republicans are looking to deliver a punch of their own this week, as President Trump gets ready to head south.
“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,” he said on Twitter. “So important for our country that they win!”
That would put him in the state one day before GOP incumbent senators David Purdue and Kelly Loeffler are facing a run-off election, with Republican control of the Senate hanging in the balance.
Democrats Jon Ossoff and the Rev. Raphael Warnock are vying to eliminate the GOP’s two-seat majority in the legislative chamber.
Perdue and Loeffler can use all the help they can get: Recent polling has shown that their Democratic opponents continue to a hold a slight advantage in the ever-tight race.
