In the United States, polls opened early in the morning across Georgia for the two runoff races that will determine control of the U.S. Senate. Over 3 million Georgia residents have already cast their ballots, in a record turnout for runoff elections.
President-elect Joe Biden headlined a drive-in rally in downtown Atlanta for Democratic candidates Jon Ossoff and Reverend Raphael Warnock. We’ll have more on today’s historic Senate runoff in Georgia after headlines.
Meanwhile, on Monday President Trump rallied thousands of unmasked supporters in a packed campaign event for Republicans Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue, promoting baseless conspiracy theories about a stolen presidential election.
During the event, Senator Loeffler promised to join a Republican effort to contest the Electoral College result during a joint session of Congress on Wednesday.
