Last Tuesday, President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr. urged Georgians to turn out in record numbers and elect Democratic senate candidates Jon Ossoff and and Raphael Warnock in the January 5, 2020, runoffs “so that it’s not even close.”
The runoffs will decide the balance of power in the U.S. Senate where the Democrats have 48 seats and the Republicans have 50.
If the Democrats were to win the two seats next month, Vice President-elect Kamala D. Harris will be able to break the tie and give control of the Senate to the Democrats.
“I know what what we can do. I know what this country is capable of. I know the future we can build together,” Biden said in remarks in Atlanta, adding “Now it’s time to send Jon and Raphael to Washington to help me get it done.”
