    Joe Biden is setting the stakes for Georgia voters: “We win Georgia, we win everything,” he said Tuesday evening. The Democratic presidential candidate told voters gathered at a drive-in rally in Atlanta to turn out to help win the state not just for him but for Democrats running for the Senate. Georgia is voting on both of its Republican-held Senate seats next week: Sen. David Perdue is up for reelection, and Sen. Kelly Loeffler is running for a full term in a special election. Polls have suggested both races are close. Biden slammed Perdue for recently making fun of running mate Sen. Kamala Harris’ name. “That’s gotta stop, and it will stop with us,” he said. Biden emphasized the importance of flipping the Senate for Democrats, and told the crowd: “There’s no state more consequential than Georgia in that fight.” Democrats need to net four seats to take back the Senate. Biden spoke from a podium set up outside before a sea of 365 cars, many honking repeatedly throughout his remarks. Supporters waved flags and cheered to drown out a noisy pro-Donald Trump demonstration just outside the fence circling the lot. But the event was high-spirited overall – hip-hop performers Common and Offset warmed up the crowd before Biden took the stage, and the Democrat tossed his suit jacket when he arrived to the podium, speaking with his shirtsleeves rolled up. He spoke in particular to black voters, a key Democratic constituency in Atlanta, promising them he’d establish a liaison to the “Divine Nine” fraternities and sororities and touting the fact that if he and Harris are elected, historically black colleges and universities would be represented in the White House. Harris graduated from Howard University in Washington, D.C.
