WATCH: Warnock on whether he wants Biden to join him on the campaign trail
FIRST ON FOX: Georgia Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock answered questions Monday about whether he would welcome President Joe Biden to the campaign trail as he heads into a runoff election against Republican Senate candidate Herschel Walker.
Speaking to Fox News Digital at a press briefing after a campaign rally in Conyers, Georgia, Warnock did not say whether he planned to campaign with Biden after discussing plans for former President Obama to join him last week in the second round.
“President Obama is retired. I don’t control the schedule of the president of the United States. We have a little over two weeks. We’ll see who runs,” Walker said.
Fox pressed him on his answer, asking if he would welcome Biden if the president decided to make the trip down south.

“Listen, I welcome people from Georgia to come forward. And we’ll see over the next few weeks who comes forward. But it’s a big tent and I’m trying to do everything I can to help people. from Georgia to understand the work I’ve already done for them and to help them understand that we need 51,” Warnock said.
“That’s what we need. We need 51 United States senators who are focused on the work that I’ve been trying to do that we’ve passed on these bills. But also, we’ve got to try to find ways to do bipartisan work. I’ve done,” he added, citing the work he said he had done for Georgia farmers, as well as building a new interstate through the state.

Obama will join Warnock for a rally in Atlanta on Thursday, December 1, just days before the scheduled runoff election on Tuesday, December 6.
As of Tuesday, no plans had been announced for Biden or any member of his administration to join Warnock on the campaign trail.
Vice President Kamala Harris dodged the question Tuesday when a reporter asked her if she planned to come out to Warnock.

“I haven’t made a decision yet,” Harris said. “I’m basically still trying to figure out what I’m going to do tomorrow.”
