Harris is evasive when asked if he will go to Georgia to campaign for Warnock
Vice President Kamala Harris has not said whether she will go to Georgia to campaign in the runoff between Sen. Raphael Warnock and Republican 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 support Warnock, D-Ga. “I’m basically still trying to figure out what I’m going to do tomorrow.”
Harris and Biden kept a relatively low profile ahead of what is widely seen as a successful midterm effort for Democrats. It’s unclear whether either will travel to the Peach State before the runoff, which is scheduled for Dec. 6.

However, Biden and Harris have not yet been to Georgia, nor has former President Trump, who recently announced his 2024 presidential bid.
SCHUMER REACTS TO KEEPING CONTROL OF THE SENATE: ‘VICTORY AND VINDICATION’ 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. Also, Democrats already have 50 Senate seats locked up, meaning they will hold on to the Senate majority no matter what.
If Walker were to win, however, that would keep the Senate margin at 50-50 and give Republicans more cushion as they seek to prevent Democrats from ending the legislative filibuster.
