Biden Stumps for Georgia Democrats Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock in Senate Runoff

Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Biden Stumps for Georgia Democrats Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock in Senate Runoff” – below is their description.

President-elect Joe Biden campaigns in Atlanta, Georgia, on behalf of Jon Ossoff, Rev. Raphael Warnock and the Democratic ticket in the January 5 runoffs.

Georgia voters are hearing final arguments from two presidents on Monday, as Donald Trump and Joe Biden each make their cases ahead of high-stakes Senate runoff elections that will determine who controls the chamber and with it, Biden’s agenda.

The state’s two seats are both up for grabs and if Republicans manage to keep just one of them, the party would have a narrow majority in the Senate, giving Majority Leader Mitch McConnell the power to block Biden’s initiatives, nominees to his administration and the judiciary.

If Democrats Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock can take both seats from Republican incumbents David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler, the Senate will be split 50-50, giving incoming Vice President Kamala Harris the tie-breaking vote.

At a drive-in rally in Atlanta, Biden said the entire country is looking to Georgia to help him implement his progressive agenda.

“The power, the power is literally in your hands,” he said. “Unlike any time in my career, one state — one state –can chart the course not just for the next four years but for the next generation.”

He said a Democrat-led Senate would pass $2,000 stimulus checks “to help people in real trouble.”

“Think about what it will mean to your lives,” he said.

Trump has linked the Senate races to his own fate in the state, pressuring Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger in an extraordinary, hour-long phone call, a recording of which was obtained by Bloomberg News. He urged the official to find a way to shift the state’s presidential results in his favor before Tuesday.
