With Senate control likely at stake in runoff elections, former gubernatorial candidate Stacy Abrams has helped raise $3.6 million for Georgia’s Democratic Senate candidates in just 2 days, according to a new report.
According to The Week “a spokesperson for Abrams’ Fair Fight PAC said on Sunday that in two days, Abrams helped raise more than $3.6 million for Democrats Jon Ossoff and Rev. Raphael Warnock, who will face off against Republican Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler on Jan. 5. If the Democrats can win both of those races, the Senate will be 50-50 between Republicans and Democrats, and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris will serve as the tie-breaker.”
Abrams said during a CNN appearance Sunday “this is going to be the determining factor of whether we have access to health care and access to justice in the United States.”
“Those are two issues that will make certain people turn out. We know this is going to be a hard fight, it’s going to be a competitive fight,” she added.
