Statistical Ties in Georgia’s Senate Runoff, Democrats Holding Slight Edge

Statistical Ties in Georgia’s Senate Runoff, Democrats Holding Slight Edge

Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) and David Perdue (R-GA).

Republican Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler both announced Tuesday that they support an effort to amend the recently passed omnibus spending bill to increase direct payments for Americans under a certain income level from $600 to $2,000. I've stood by the president 100% of the time. Trump's 11th-hour demand for increased relief through Congressional negotiations into turmoil over the last few days and MSNBC's Kasie Hunt noted that Perdue was against direct payments before he got behind the president on this.

Democrats believe their support for the $2,000 checks will help them in Georgia. "And I've said absolutely we need to get relief to Americans now, and I will support that".

"I am calling on Sen". Look, President-elect Biden, President Trump and Democrats all support this policy to get money into the pockets of hardworking Americans who are in dire straights right now and Sen. Senate and the fate of the incoming administration's legislative agenda.

The NDAA, however, does not seem to be as high of a priority as stimulus checks for Perdue and Loeffler.

"During an appearance on the Fox News morning program "Fox & Friends", Loeffler expressed unwavering support for Trump and said she would back the president's proposal".

When Ossoff was asked about Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's political maneuvering over the situation, he stressed that Americans are in desperate need of relief from the coronavirus's economic devastation. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, Marco Rubio of Florida, and Josh Hawley of Missouri have said they would support $2,000 checks - a growing sign of conservative defections in favor of increased payments.

On Sunday, Trump signed the $2.3 trillion COVID-19 relief and government funding bill into law, despite his criticism that the $600 checks weren't enough.

More than 2 million Georgians have already voted early ahead of the January 5 runoff elections, according to the Georgia Secretary of State's office.

The outlet pointed to Walker County-which President Donald Trump won with 79% over Biden-as one example, where as of Wednesday, turnout "was only 47 percent of the general election total".
