Biden ad in Georgia hammers home dire necessity of electing Warnock, Ossoff to saving the country
President-elect Joe Biden wants Georgians to know that his ability to respond to the urgent health and economic crises facing the nation is directly dependent on the election of the two Democrats running to unseat Senate Republicans in the state.
“Let me be clear, I need Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff in the United States Senate,” Biden says, in a direct appeal to Georgia voters worried about the pandemic crisis gripping the nation. “There are folks in Congress threatening to do everything in their power to block our efforts,” Biden explains, adding, “We need them in the Senate.”
Electing Warnock and Ossoff would give Democrats a bare majority in the U.S. Senate, giving them a measure of control over the upper chamber that will be absolutely critical to Biden’s ability to enact his agenda.
“On Day 1 as your President, I am prepared to sign a COVID relief package that fully funds the public health response needed,” Biden says, “It will ensure free testing and vaccination for every American and will get small businesses the assistance they need right now.
“Let me be clear, I need Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff in the United States Senate to get this done. There are folks in Congress threatening to do everything in their power to block our efforts. We need you to get out there and vote for Jon Ossoff as well Raphael Warnock. We need them in the Senate.”
