Obama says Georgia Senate runoff races will “determine ultimately the course of the Biden presidency”

Appearing at a virtual rally for Democrat Georgia candidate John Ossoff and Raphael Warnock, former President Obama warned the stakes for the special election Senate runoffs are higher than ever.

Obama told Georgia citizens watching who wins these races will “determine ultimately the course of the Biden presidency.”

“You are now once again the center of our civic universe,” added.

Attempting to inspire participation in the Jan 5th runoff, Obama said “This is not just about Georgia. This is about America, and this is about the world and it’s in your power to have an impact.”
