라이브 업데이트: GOP 상원 결선 후보를위한 조지아의 마이크 펜스 캠페인

부통령 Mike Pence flew to Georgia on Friday to campaign for Republican U.S. Senate incumbents 데이비드 퍼듀켈리 로플 러, who both face runoff elections Jan. 5 against Democratic challengers.

The runoffs, which were triggered when no candidate won a majority of the vote in two Senate elections in the Peach State on Nov. 3, will determine which party holds the majority in the Senate when the next Congress convenes.

Fast Facts on the Seante runoffs

    • GOP Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler will face off against Democratic challenger Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock on Jan. 5
    • The races will determine if Republicans kee their majority in the Senate

In Canton, Ga., the first of two stops Pence and the two GOP senators made on a bus swing through the northern outreaches of a sprawling metropolitan Atlanta, the vice president announced that “I’m here because 트럼프 대통령 and I stand with Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler.”

And Pence repeatedly highlighted how Perdue and Loeffler have supported the president’s agenda.

The current balance of power for the next Senate coming out of this month’s elections is 50 Republicans and 46 민주당 — plus two independents who caucus with the Democrats. That means Democrats must win both of Georgia’s runoff elections to make it a 50-50 상원. If that occurs, Vice President-elect Kamala Harris would be the tie-breaking vote, giving her party a razor-thin majority in the chamber.
