Former presidential candidate Andrew Yang says he’s moving to Georgia to help Democrats win control of the Senate.
Yang tweeted this weekend that his entire family is relocating to The Peach State to campaign for Jon Ossof and Raphael Warnock, the two Democratic candidates in runoffs against Republicans David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler.
Following Tuesday’s election, there are 48 Democrats and 48 Republicans set to hold office in the Senate in 2021 with two seats in Georgia, along with seats in North Carolina and Alaska still to be decided.
Democrats must win two of the four seats to gain control of the Congress with Vice President Kamala Harris being the tie breaking vote.
WSB-TV in Atlanta reports no Democrats has been elected to the Senate from Georgia in 20 years.
Yang’s call for a dividend plan which would give every American adult $1,000 a month has been popular with White working class voters- a demographic the Democrats have been losing. His support for Ossof and Warnock could have an impact and help swing the vote.
