ATLANTA – Former President Barack Obama and Vice President Mike Pence are fighting Georgian voters on Friday and want to support the battle for Senate control.
Obama will join 2018 governor-designate Stacey Abrams and two Senate candidates, Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock, in a virtual meeting on Friday afternoon. Around the same time Pence joins Sens. To David Perdue (R-Ga.) And Kelly Loeffler (R-Ga.) For a personal move in Savannah.
President Donald Trump will hold a demonstration in Valdosta with the two Republicans on Saturday in the course, which is about a month away.
Currently, the Senate partisan split consists of 50 Republicans and 48 Democrats. If both Ossoff and Warnock win their race, the Senate will be under democratic control because elected Vice President Kamala Harris will serve as the tie vote. If Republicans win only one of Georgia’s seats, the GOP will retain control of the chamber.
In the state, campaigns for Washington Republicans, Senate work, and Democrats were rarely conducted this week, mostly apart from personal campaigns over the worsening Covid-19 epidemic.
Pence previously appeared Friday with Perdue and Loeffler at the Atlanta Center for Disease Control and Prevention. Each man sat more than six feet apart and was given a mask for the event, during which Pence called Republican senators “leaders” and “in our modern virus in our national policy response” to “corona virus”. Pence thanked them for “their constant and constant support.”
Republicans have been bound. Trump refuses to accept the election results, limiting his ability to convey one of their most effective messages that keeping the Senate in Republicans controls the administration of President-elect Joe Biden.
Further complicating some Republican efforts, Trump’s allies urged voters not to cast votes in the run-down elections to protest the general election, which they said was “fraudulent”. Trump and his allies provided no evidence of voter fraud, and the state’s Republican Secretary of State, Brad Raffensperger, vehemently defended the integrity of the election.
The president has repeatedly targeted Raffensperger and Republican governor Brian Kemp, who he says is not doing enough to help his cause. Kemp spokesman on Friday tweeted that the governor did not greet Pence when he arrived in Savannah as originally planned “due to a family emergency.”
