Harris’ visit following so soon after Biden’s reflects the importance of the runoff elections, which will determine control of the Senate, with Democrats needing to win both to have a tied Senate with Harris breaking ties on votes. At stake is whether Mitch McConnell will, as majority leader, be able to block literally every Democratic priority and every Biden nominee.
Harris campaigned in Georgia twice in the weeks before the general election, which she and Biden won narrowly, reflecting years of work by activists and organizers in this traditionally red state. Her Monday visit will be aimed at increasing turnout among Black voters.
