Fox News reported the group’s plan to support Ossoff and Warnock in Georgia’s Senate election when millions of dollars will flow into the races – making them two of the most expensive senate races in American history.

Republican Senator Lindsey Graham said she spent $ 1 million earlier this week on her own re-election campaign fund for Republican senators Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue as Georgian officials tried to keep their seats in the upper chamber.

The South Carolina legislature also called on his colleagues to send the funds from their campaigns to Loeffler and Perdue before the Jan. 5 election.

He reported it The New York Times more than $ 125 million was donated last week over the course of two weeks of the Georgian Senate’s run-up campaigns. Similar sums were spent on campaign advertising.

Even the Romantic writers were immersed, the Democratic Romance for the Run group raised nearly $ 400,000 for the Ossoff and Perdue campaigns in hopes of winning effective control of the Senate.

If officials in Republican office lose their seats in the upper chamber, the Senate is divided 50-50. In this composition, elected Vice President Kamala Harris would vote for a final draw.
