Trump v Senate GOP

In Defying the Odds, we discuss state and congressional elections as well as the presidential race.   Our next book, title TBA, discusses the 2020 results.

Trump has not exactly been helpful to the Senate GOP in recent days.


Hannah Miao at CNBC:
In the crucial Georgia Senate runoff races, Democratic challengers Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock are using President Donald Trump’s latest push for larger stimulus checks to bash incumbent GOP Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler.

In video posted to Twitter Tuesday night, Trump called the $900 billion Covid relief bill passed by Congress an unsuitable “disgrace” and urged lawmakers to make a number of changes to the measure, including increasing the $600 stimulus checks to $2,000.

The two Democratic candidates, who have advocated for larger direct payments, wasted no time in responding to Trump’s move and criticizing their opponents.
