Stacey Abrams, who spent years building a coalition that helped Joe Biden win Georgia, on Sunday said the Democratic Party feels “a great deal of urgency” about Tuesday’s Senate runoff elections that will determine control of the upper chamber.
Jon Ossoff and Rev. Raphael Warnock need to win both Georgia senate seats to split control of the chamber 50-50 for Democrats with Vice President-elect Kamala Harris as the tie-breaking vote while Republicans David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler need to win at least one seat to maintain the GOP majority.
Polls show Ossoff leading Perdue by less than a percentage point and Warnock with an edge over incumbent Loeffler by nearly 2 percentage points. Neither candidate received a majority of votes in either the Nov. 3 election
"We did very well in vote by mail, we did very well in early vote, but we know Election Day is going to be the likely high-turnout day for Republicans, so we need Democrats who haven't cast their ballots to turn out," Abrams told ABC's "This Week" co-anchor Martha Raddatz.
When asked whether there was anything on the ground that gave her concern, Abrams responded: “No concern, just a great deal of urgency," Abrams said.
