The Senate is currently controlled by Republicans, 50-48. But if both Democrats win in Georgia, their party would control the chamber because likely incoming Vice President Kamala Harris would be the tiebreaker vote.
In the two races, Democrats Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock, a pastor, are facing off against incumbent Republican Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler.
“If you send Jon and the reverend to Washington, those $2,000 checks will go out the door,” Biden said Monday while campaigning in Atlanta on the eve of the election. “And if you send Senator Perdue and Loeffler back to Washington, those checks will never get there. It’s just that simple. The power is literally in your hands.”
