It All Comes Down To This — 2 Georgia Race That Will Determine Control Of The Senate.
The political world has trained its focus on Georgia’s two U.S. Senate races, which will settle the kind of Senate that President-elect Joe Biden will be dealing with.
The races, taking place Tuesday — the day before Biden is slated to be certified by Congress as the winner of the 2020 presidential — are expected to be close. Consider that Biden won the rapidly changing but previously traditionally Republican state by fewer than 12,000 votes.
Two wins for Democrats, and they will control the Senate, along with the White House and the House, in a few weeks — a stark turnabout from the beginning of the Trump presidency four years earlier, when Republicans had full control.
