Almost 2.1million have already voted in Georgia's runoff election

Wednesday, 30 Dec, 2020

Jon Ossoff, who faces Senator David Perdue, cashed more than $ 106 million from Oct.15 to Dec.16, according to his latest campaign finance report. 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.

Loeffler and Sen. David Perdue, the other Georgia Republican running for reelection, claimed they secured additional aid for Georgians despite obstruction from congressional Democrats. If Democrats win both seats, the party would lead the White House and both legislative chambers-a fact the GOP has been playing up in its fundraising appeals and advertisements.

Jon Ossoff appeared onMSNBC's The ReidOut Monday night, where he called on Perdue to commit to voting for $2,000 relief checks.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) also released a statement upon Trump signing the legislation in which he thanked the president for avoiding a government shutdown.

Loeffler and Perdue held a joint campaign event in Greensboro.

Trump amplified the matter again Tuesday via Twitter.

Mr. Trump also tweeted about his own battle to overturn the results of the November election he lost to President-elect Joseph R. Biden.

"I've stood by the president 100 percent of the time", Loeffler said. "I'm proud to do that", Loeffler said Tuesday on Fox.

With just one week until Georgia's Senate runoff between Republican Senator Kelly Loeffler and Democratic challenger Raphael Warnock, recent polls show a close race with neither candidate clearly in the lead. Loeffler submitted hers a day earlier. The narrow difference between the two candidates is well within the margin of error, which means that neither the Republican nor the Democrat is clearly favored to win. Early voting has already started for the January 5 election. Indeed, throughout the fall campaign and runoff blitz, the senators have hailed the "Paycheck Protection Program" that financed loans to businesses.

"We are honored by the grassroots support and generosity that continues to propel Reverend Warnock's campaign to represent all Georgians in the US Senate", Jerid Kurtz, Warnock campaign manager, said in a statement.

Loeffler had previously declined to take a firm position when pressed by reporters and Perdue had been quiet on the issue, though he had been critical of the direct payments earlier this year during the first round of Covid relief. "We need to remove that incentive not to be at work". That spending plan delivered Americans $1,200 cash payments.

In the November 3 election, Perdue received 49.73% of the vote compared to Ossoff's 47.95%. Warnock and Ossoff would "rubber stamp" a "radical agenda to reshape this country into something unrecognizable", she insisted.
