After almost a month of the ‘midterms’, mid-term elections of the United States that were held on November 8, voters from Georgia attend the polls this Tuesday, 6, to define a Senate seat between a pastor and a former American football star, in a very important election for the president of the United States, Joe Biden🇧🇷 the democratic senator Raphael Warnock faces a candidate backed by former Republican President Donald Trump (2017-2021), former athlete Herschel Walker🇧🇷 Despite the fact that the commands of the House of Representatives, which will remain with the Republicans, and the seats of the Senate, in which the majority are Democrats, have already been revealed, the result in Georgia has weight in the results, as the vote in the state with great African-American population is decisive for the remainder of Joe Biden’s term. Republicans see this race as an opportunity to build momentum and block Democratic government policies. With 700 days to go before the 2024 presidential election, the opposition is hoping to create obstacles for Biden after Democrats achieved much better-than-expected results in the November midterms. Republicans thought he was going to be able to impose a red wave.

A Democrat victory in Georgia would consolidate the narrow majority in the Senate (currently at 50-49, and even at 50-50 the Democrats have a majority thanks to Vice President Kamala Harris, who serves as president of the Senate) and would allow greater influence on key congressional committees. Although usually a Republican stronghold, Georgia gave Joe Biden victory over Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential election. And two months later, he chose two Democrats for the Senate. That state, which borders Florida, is once again the object of desire for both parties. So far, the participation of the Democrats seems to prevail, but the Republican electorate could achieve a large mobilization this Tuesday, which makes it difficult to predict the result.
