Trump visited Georgia last weekend, both to gin up enthusiasm for the Senate run offs, and to vent his frustrations with the state’s electoral process. The president has relentlessly hammered the state’s Republican statewide officeholders for not doing more to bolster his claims of rampant voter fraud and help him reverse Biden’s victory.
GOP operatives, in turn, have expressed concern that the allegations of voter impropriety from Trump and other Republicans will drive down enthusiasm within the GOP base and drive down voter turnout for Sens. David Purdue and Kelly Loeffler.
The announcement also comes less than a day after the president-elect’s son, Hunter Biden, revealed that the U.S. attorney’s office in Delaware has opened an investigation into his taxes.
POLITICO and others have also reported that the scope of the probe has been more expansive than the younger Biden initially let on, potentially building a controversy that could hamper the early part of his father’s presidency.
Biden’s transition did not specify where in the state the president-elect will visit during his trip or what shape his campaigning will take.
