The $900 billion pandemic rescue plan signed by President Trump on Sunday night became a problem in Georgia’s Senate runoff on Monday, and two current Republican lawmakers tried to take advantage of the stimulus bill and demanded for helping provide aid to the United States. Credit. State.
Senator Kelly Loeffler tweeted on Monday morning: “Aid is on the way.” The stimulus package is used to distribute billions of dollars to vaccines, schools and other beneficiaries, and to millions of Americans. People paid $600. She and her current colleague David Perdue issued a statement on Sunday night, thanking the president for finally approving the stimulus funds and avoiding Mr. Trump calling the bill a “disgrace” last week, which would sink the bill’s fate. Turbulence and demanded direct payment increase to $2,000.
“David Perdue doesn’t care about us, $600 is just a joke,” Mr. Ossoff in DeKalb County, Mr. Warnock and Mr. Warnock He was told to hundreds of people at an outdoor voting rally that he was one of the suburban counties in Atlanta. It has become more and more diverse in the past decade.
Osoff said: “You send me and Pastor Warnock to the Senate, and we will put the money in our pockets.” He will face Mr. Perdue in the runoff, and Mr. Warnock is challenging Ms. Loeffler.
Mr. Perdue has been advertising, criticizing Osov for calling the $600 relief check a “joking”, even though the president also called them too small. Mr. Osoff wrote on Twitter that last spring, Mr. Perdue did not even like the first round of direct payments.
With just over a week before Georgia’s election day, Mr. Trump’s initial refusal to sign the stimulus plan put Ms. Lovefleur and Mr. Perdue in a delicate position. Both parties support this measure passed through direct payment of $600, but both parties are firm supporters of Mr. Trump. If they openly break with him because of the need to sign the bill, they may anger him.
“In the fierce Senate competition, the president continues to place two current Republican senators in a difficult place,” said Bill Klein, a longtime Republican political agent and analyst in Georgia.
Despite the confusion, the president said on Twitter on Sunday that he would represent the two senators in the final campaign in Dalton, Georgia (northern carpet production center) on the eve of the election. Because these two races play a potentially key role in determining the balance of power in the Senate, they have attracted national attention and record inflows of funds.
If both Mr. Ossoff and Mr. Warnock win, there will be 50 to 50 points that the same room transfers to, because of the relationship between the vice president-elect Kamala Harris’ breakthrough ability, and the Democratic control.
The fate of the two senators in the unusual double runoff may fall in the turnout of Dalton and other parts of northwestern Georgia. In conservative areas, Mr. Trump won 70% or more in most counties. Votes. His decision to continue to visit the region still seems to be a last-minute effort to inspire Republican voters.
This election seems to lead to a record turnout. 2.1 million Georgians have already voted at the early voting site or by mail. So far, the most populated area is the Democratic Party area near Atlanta.
Mr. Klein said that he thinks Democrats have advantages in early voting, voter enthusiasm and money. Klein said: “Democrats lost their lives in the mail voting.” According to the analysis of the Atlanta Journal, he also pointed out that since the November election, 76,000 new voters have registered.
He said: “This has once again expressed enthusiasm and will work for the Democratic Party.”
Republicans expressed concern about Trump’s repeated complaints about “election manipulation,” which is a false claim he made to explain his loss to Joseph R. Biden Jr., which would make party voters reluctant to participate in the Senate election. Mr. Klein said that far-right commentators’ information about voter fraud has always existed in the state, and some Georgians are confused about whether their votes are worthwhile. He said: “Georgia still has conflicts over whether we should vote or not.”
As early voting lasted until December, the campaign of Mr. Warnock and Mr. Osoff focused on encouraging voters to vote on Monday. Their admission event was held in the parking lot of the Baptist Church and featured performances by several rappers, including Shelley FKA DRAM, JID, Tokyo Jetz and BRS Kash.
Mr. Ossoff, who runs a documentary production company, and Mr. Warnock, the pastor of the historic church in Atlanta, encouraged their supporters to go to early voting locations or submit votes in the coin box. Osov said: “The whole country is watching Georgian voters to see what we will do at this historic moment.”
Both Mr. Osoff and Mr. Warnock and the Democrats on Capitol Hill viewed stimulus checks as a winning issue and seized on micropayments and the president’s intent to oppose the stimulus package to increase their chances in Georgia. On Monday, a few hours before the House of Representatives voted in favor of Trump’s $2,000 stimulus inspection, Osov wrote on Twitter: “@Perduesenate, when will you promise to provide Georgians with a $2,000 relief inspection? ?”
