President-elect Joe Biden is likely going to Georgia to campaign for the two Democratic Senate candidates ahead of two January runoffs.
Ron Klain, a longtime aide to Biden, said the former vice president “would stump in Georgia ahead of the Jan. 5 runoffs, which will determine whether Democrats or Republicans control the Senate,” as reported by Fox News.
“We’re going to work hard to help win those Senate seats,” Klain said on “Meet the Press” on NBC. “I think you’ll see the president-elect campaign down there as we’re getting closer to Election Day. We’re going to put people, money, resources down there to help our two good candidates win,” he also added.
Meanwhile, Politico explained that the Democratic party “will have to defy a long track record of failure in overtime elections.”
“They’ll need to overcome the entire weight of the Republican Party descending on the state — from organizers and operatives to potentially hundreds of millions of dollars. One of their Senate candidates, Jon Ossoff, would have to make up the nearly 90,000 votes he ran behind the GOP incumbent on Nov. 3,” the report explained.
The party that controls the Senate will determine how much power the Biden administration has in passing its agenda, Fox News also explained.
