Harris deflects when asked if she will go to Georgia to campaign for Warnock

Vice President Kamala Harris won’t say whether she will travel to Georgia to campaign in the election between Sen. Raphael Warnock and GOP candidate Herschel Walker.

“I haven’t made a decision yet,” Harris said Tuesday, when asked by a reporter during an international trip to Malaysia whether she and President Biden would stump for Warnock, D-Ga. “I’m basically still trying to figure out what I’m doing tomorrow.”

Harris and Biden maintained a relatively low profile in what was widely seen as a successful midterm effort for the Democrats. It’s unclear whether Peach will travel to the state before either runoff, which is set for Dec. 6.

Meanwhile, former President Obama is expected to visit Georgia on December 1. Republicans who have visited Georgia since the runoff began include Sens. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and Lindsey Graham, R.S.C. are also included. As does Rick Scott, R-Fla., chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee.

However, Biden and Harris have not yet been to Georgia, nor has former President Trump, who recently announced a 2024 presidential run.

Schumer Responds to Retaining Control of the Senate: ‘Victory and Indication’ for Democrats and America

The stakes in Georgia are notably lower than in 2020. Biden remains in the White House and Republicans control the House, so there is no chance of a Democratic trifecta. Plus, Democrats already have 50 Senate seats locked up, meaning they’ll retain a Senate majority no matter what.

If Walker wins, however, it would keep the Senate margin at 50-50 and give Republicans more cushion as they seek to prevent Democrats from getting away with a legislative filibuster.

It is headed by Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, DN.Y., and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky. would also force Congress to continue with the power-sharing agreement, which, among other things, gives equal committee representation to Republicans. This would allow Republicans to slow down legislation and nominate people to committee in a way they otherwise would not be able to do.
