Georgia Senate: Biden and Trump rally voters on eve of poll – BBC News
Biden and Trump on Monday Support Georgia Senatorial Candidates
The second round of elections in this state will determine which party will control the upper house of Congress.
President Donald Trump and President-elect Joe Biden speak on Monday in Georgia for a second round of two Senate elections on Tuesday that will determine the balance of power in the upper house of Congress for the next two years..
Trump to rally in Dalton in support of incumbent Republican Senators David Purdue and Kelly Leffler.
Biden will speak in Atlanta in support of their Democratic rivals: John Ossoff and Pastor Raphael Warnock.
The second round is being held due to the fact that none of the four candidates received a majority in the November 3 elections. Georgia is also one of the states where Trump is challenging Biden’s victory, claiming massive vote rigging..
State electoral officials, including Republicans, insist the vote count was accurate. Several courts have rejected Trump’s claims.
The issue came to the fore again on Sunday, when the Washington Post published an audio recording of Trump’s conversation with Georgia’s secretary of state. According to the entry, the president demanded that the head of the state’s electoral system “find” enough votes to change the election results in this state in his favor.
If both Democrats win the election on Tuesday, the party will win a majority in the Senate: the seats will be divided equally, and the casting vote will go to the elected Vice President Kamala Harris..
If at least one of the Republicans wins, Congress will remain divided: the House of Representatives will be controlled by the Democrats, and the Senate by the Republicans..

Biden became the first Democratic presidential candidate to win in Georgia since 1992.
In the November elections in the state, about 5 million people voted, of which 3.6 million – ahead of schedule. A little more than 3 million voters voted early in the second round.
In November, the majority of early voters supported Democrats, so turnout on Tuesday is key for Republicans..
