15 minutes. The president-elect of the United States (USA), Joe Biden, will travel to Atlanta next Thursday to campaign for the Democratic candidates for Georgia to the Senate, ahead of the crucial second round of elections that will decide which party controls the Upper House.
Senators David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler, the Republican candidates, enjoyed the benefit of high-profile surrogate appearances in the campaign, regular since almost the beginning of the campaign.
The current US President, Donald Trump, and the Vice President, Mike Pence, campaigned for them at various events held in the state.
The Democratic campaign, on the other hand, was different, as it worked to prevent possible contagions of COVID-19, which limited the opportunities for Democratic personalities to travel to the state in the framework of the campaign.
However, they were much more active in virtual campaign tactics.
In this regard, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, and Senator Elizabeth Warren held virtual events to raise funds.
If one of the Republican senators gets a seat, the Republican Party will retain control of the Upper House. If the Democrats win two seats, the Senate will be divided.
However, the vice president-elect, Kamala harris, can tie the tie.
Trump lost Georgia, a traditionally conservative state, by less than 13,000 votes. This was the first time the state’s voters had chosen a Democratic candidate in nearly 30 years.
