A day before Georgians head to the polls to decide control of the Senate, President-elect Joe Biden sought to cast the election as a choice between immediate stimulus relief or months of gridlock, promising that victory by Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff would mean $2,000 stimulus checks would be sent out “immediately.”Victories by Warnock and Ossoff would make swift passage of another stimulus package far more likely because Democrats would then narrowly control the Senate (the breakdown would be 50 Democrats-50 Republicans, with Vice President-elect Kamala Harris breaking the tie), as well as the White House and the House of Representatives. If either Warnock or Ossoff lose, Biden and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) would have to work with McConnell for at least two more years. Biden has said he intends to push for another stimulus package that includes more direct payments, state and local aid, additional funding for vaccine distribution, among other relief programs when he assumes office later this month. Biden repeatedly blasted Loeffler and Perdue over their “loyalty” to Trump during his stump speech Monday, saying, “You have two senators who think their loyalty is to Donald Trump, not Georgia.” Loeffler announced Monday she will object to the electoral college certification on January 6. On Sunday, the Washington Post and Atlanta Journal -Constitution published audio of a one hour call Trump had with Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger in which he called on the election official to overturn the results of the race in his state and “find” 11,000 votes.
