3:10 pm
formality and no concern that it will impact buying his inauguration, biden himself is given no comment on this matter instead keeping the focus on turning out the vote in georgia steering about $18 million towards jon ossoff and raphael warnock's election and using the campaign mailing list to solicit donations robocalls featuring messages from biden and vice president-elect kamala harris going out across the state, the runoff will determine biden's legislative reach on a number of his signature campaign promises including his promise to build upon the affordable care act. jon: jacqui heinrich in delaware. both parties are pulling out all the stops ahead of tuesday's georgia senate runoff, president trump older rally for republicans kelly loeffler and david perdue tomorrow, it will be the first time a sitting president has visited dalton in 28 years. he is counting on republican support to help reelect perdue and loeffler to keep senate
3:11 pm
control and senate hands. steve harrigan is in dalton georgia right now. >> this is the final push for turnout, ordinarily runoff elections in georgia you see a drop off in turnout, that is not the case this time around, the senate races to determine which will control the senate have remarkable turnout within 3 million people voting early in these elections, more than 100,000 people are new voters, some of these people are actually people who turned 18 after the general election and before the runoff elections. if you look across the state there are differences as to where that turnout is heaviest, the highest turnout are in districts around atlanta, democratic territory, some more than 80% of the general election back in november, some of the lowest turnout unfortunately for republicans is around in the northwest of georgia around dalton, 69% early voters in the 14th district. the real question what role with the president pray in the
3:12 pm
turnout numbers, so far the attacking of the electoral procedure in georgia is not clear what effect that will have on turnout, the president has called the two senate runoff elections illegal and invalid. tomorrow he will come here to dalton to push a heavy republican turnout for the two republican senators. jon: steve harrigan in dalton, georgia. vice president like kamala harris wrapped up a rally in georgia, she's trained to boost support for democratic candidate jon ossoff and raphael warnock. she's not the only big-name making a stop in georgia, peter doocy is live. >> that is not all, vice president elect kamala harris is here who can make her the senate tie-breaking vote if they win. jon ossoff and raphael warnock. >> 2020 is not really over until we get to the end of tuesday
3:13 pm
january 5 and elect the united states senate of savannah raphael warnock and a son of georgia jon ossoff to the united states senate. >> with david perdue remaining in quarantines after close contact with an infected staffer despite three negative covid-19 test, kelly loeffler and friends on the trail trying to raise name idea as a presidential with ron themselves like kristi noem the south dakota governor and republican closing argument is really heavy on ideology hoping to convince georgia voters at the democratic-controlled senate would mean a shift to socialism. >> you know why, this battleground might be here in georgia but the nation is depending on us, where the firewall of stopping socialism and we know that because we heard chuck schumer say we picked georgia and we change america.
3:14 pm

3:15 pm
smooth road for the democrats, nancy pelosi barely became the speaker of the house, she had five defectors and that is really the tip of the iceberg, there is major issues within the democratic party. she's got an extremely narrow lead, she is fine by the seat-of-the-pants. she's just come off 116th congress where she led miserably. i think fewer than 30 bills were passed during those two years. she has the squad involved, it is going to be very problematic for her so it is going to be very interesting, 117th congress on multiple fronts. jon: one of the criticism kevin mccarthy directed at her from the podium before he handed her the gavel today was the fact that he feels that she has delayed coronavirus aid, delayed it before the election so as to not hand president trump a message that he could run and
3:16 pm
went on, here is kevin mccarthy on that. >> during some of the most challenging times for our country, i felt congress was on the sidelines. when the need for more pandemic relief was obvious, did we deliver in a timely lifeline american reader. or did we say nothing was better than something until politics dictated our actions. jon: now that the presidential election is over suddenly the houseboats for $2000 stimulus checks, congressman? >> that's the way nancy pelosi plays the game, it's about power and was in her best interest rather than what's in the best interest for the united states. she uses must pass bills to try to stick into it all sorts of horrible radical left-wing pieces of legislation, the stimulus package that we voted
3:17 pm
on just a couple of weeks ago, thousands of pages. we did not even have time to read it. and yet were expected to vote on it, it's her philosophy of pressing the needle, tightening the screws without us having all the information. as part of the course for her, the way she operates. jon: there is an argument going on within republican circles on capitol hill as to whether or not senator ted cruz is wise or right in challenging the electoral college vote, he intends to do on wednesday. he has a dozen or so senators voting with him but there are now 18 prominent republicans on capitol hill who say the election is over, the votes should be certified, they will not make any objections, you can add liz cheney the number three member of the house of representatives to that list, what you make of this argument going on republican on
3:18 pm
republican? >> the issue at hand is not about a particular election, it's about election integrity, about election security and anyone, republican or democrat who is unconcerned enough to investigate to check in to vicious allegations of election fraud, shame on them. this entire republic hinges on the voice of the people to be expressed at the voting booth. and if that integrity is lost, then we ultimately lose our republic, the allegations are serious, the spread across many states, we cannot sweep this under the rug, we cannot turn our head as though this is not an important issue, it is something that absolutely highlighted, underscore, we must address and look into. jon: how do you feel about election security in your home
3:19 pm
state of georgia for tuesday's runoff? >> i'm very concerned with it, there is a couple of things that may be helpful but the people of georgia are very concerned. the secretary of state has let us down and not provided election security although he claims it's a most secure election in history, he is only one that i know of ever that is made that kind of assertion critically under the circumstances now but there are going to be about 8000 additional people watching at the polls in county poll watchers, observers, that is good, the more eyes, the less likelihood of fraud taking place. i am hopeful there will be enough security and people will get out and vote, this is a critical election and to sit at home, this is not the time to do it. jon: congressman jody hice publican of georgia, thank you. the new year bring it in an explosion of new covid infections, more than 20 million confirmed so far in our country. including a tv icon now
