In the wake of the Electoral College’s Monday vote granting him a victory, Democrat Joe Biden has returned to the campaign trail in Georgia in an attempt to rally his party’s support for two U.S. Senate candidates ahead of next month’s runoff races — and it’s clear he’s worried about them.
In addition to appearances on behalf of candidates Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock, Biden has recorded ads signaling his apparent concern about what will happen to his agenda if the GOP incumbents win their respective races, The Washington Times reports.
“Get this done”
As the former vice president explained, the Senate majority hangs in the balance with the results of these two races.
“Let me be clear,” he said in one recent television ad, according to the Times, “I need Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff in the United States Senate to get this done.”
Biden went on to argue that there are “folks in Congress threatening to do everything in their power to block or efforts,” pleading with Georgia Democrats to “get out there and vote” for the Democratic Senate hopefuls.
In addition to recording the 60-second spot, Biden traveled to Georgia in person on Tuesday to stump for Ossoff and Warnock.
If both Democrats win, the Senate will be evenly split between the two parties, meaning Vice President-elect Kamala Harris would cast the tie-breaking vote.
Breitbart’s Rebecca Mansour noted in an article on Wednesday that such an outcome would be disastrous for the nation’s millions of conservatives.
“For starters, a Democrat Senate majority will allow Biden and Harris to assemble the most far-left cabinet possible without having to worry that Mitch McConnell will block their nominees,” she wrote.
Mansour went on to point out that a Democratic majority would make it easier for progressives to push through policies like the Green New Deal or amnesty for undocumented immigrants.
Conservative author Ann Coulter voiced similar concerns earlier this month, declaring that if GOP Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler lose next month then “the Democrats will have the trifecta: the presidency, the House, and the Senate, and welcome to hell.”
Early voting has already begun in the Georgia runoff elections, and voters will return to the polls to determine the winners on Jan. 5.
