Georgia's Rising Blue Tide and Why it Matters

We went to Georgia to learn why this southern state with a decades-long and firmly rooted Republican tradition has become so important to the Democratic party.

Joe Biden is the president-elect, but the U.S. elections are not over yet. In the state of Georgia, there will be a runoff election for both Senate seats on January 5, 2021. It is the Democrats' last immediate chance to achieve a narrow majority in the US Senate. If both races are called for the Democratic candidates, Jon Ossoff and Reverend Raphael Warnock, Joe Biden could begin to tackle his ambitious policy program with legislative backing from both chambers of the United States Congress. With so much at stake, we went to Georgia to take a closer look at the state’s history and politics, and to learn why this southern state with a decades-long and firmly rooted Republican tradition has become so important to the Democratic party.
