Huge Early Turnout in Georgia's Senate Elections
President-elect Joe Biden visited Georgia yesterday to support the Democrats running in Georgia's Senate elections. The election is Jan. 5, but early in-person and mail-in voting began this week. In the election, Republican incumbents David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler are facing off against Democrats Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock, and polls have shown that both races are very close.
Nate Cohen: A record-shattering first day of early voting in the Georgia runoff: 168k vote in-person yesterday, up from 136k on day one of in-person early voting for the general election.
Perdue and Loeffler have focused their efforts on securing the votes of Trump's base by keeping the President's various election conspiracy theories alive. Both have refused to recognize Joe Biden as President-elect. However, they are in a tough spot; they have to convince Trump's supporters to vote in the Senate race while also alleging that elections in Georgia are rigged.
