During an appearance on CNBC, Axios co-founder Mike Allen said that some Republicans believe President Donald Trump’s erratic behavior in recent weeks is designed to “sabotage” the GOP’s chances of winning the Georgia runoff elections, which will determine which of the two major political parties will have control of the Senate.
Joe Biden received 306 Electoral College votes on Monday. On Tuesday, he headed down to Georgia to campaign for Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff who are competing in a hugely important senate runoff.
During the 2020 campaign season, Biden showed that he could be a powerful fundraiser. In the last few months up to the November election, the former Vice President routinely out-raised Donald Trump.
The presidential race in 2020 came down to a select few swing states. Some, like Wisconsin, Michigan, Nevada and Pennsylvania had Democrats as governors. The other two, Georgia and Arizona had Republicans in charge.
Barack Obama will campaign in Georgia to support Senate candidates Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock, who will compete against incumbent Republicans David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler in highly-anticipated races that will determine which party gets control of the chamber.
U.S. Senate candidate Reverend Dr. Raphael Warnock (D) says “a new South” has emerged and with it will come demographic changes that will flip the state of Georgia, long a Republican stronghold, to the Democratic Party.
