President Donald Trump is set to go to Georgia on Saturday to campaign for Republican Senate runoff candidates, reports said.
Trump told reporters on Thursday, “Speaking of Georgia, I’ll be going there. Maybe I’ll go twice.”
The president said he originally wanted to hold a rally for Republican incumbents Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue in a stadium, but “can’t, because of COVID.”
White House spokesperson Judd Deere, for his part, confirmed that Trump will visit Georgia on Saturday, December 5.
Two Georgia runoff elections will take place on January 5 with early voting starting on December 14.
The polls will determine control of the Senate and Biden’s ability to push through his “very progressive” agenda.
Democrats need to win both seats for a 50-50 split. Vice President-elect Kamala Harris would then cast the tie breaking vote in the upper chamber if Biden is inaugurated on January 20.
