Wednesday on Political Rewind: Georgia’s pair of crucial Senate runoffs are drawing ad dollars and national political figures to the state. One day after the Electoral College sealed President-elect Joe Biden’s victory, he campaigned in Georgia on Tuesday for Democratic U.S. Senate candidates Jon Ossoff and the Rev. Raphael Warnock.

Meanwhile, Vice President Mike Pence is scheduled to make his fourth visit in the state since the runoff election began.

He is set to campaign for Gov. Brian Kemp-appointee Sen. Kelly Loeffler and Sen. David Perdue in Columbus and Macon on Thursday. The campaign stops come even as President Donald Trump continues to insist he won the election.

Around 500,000 people have already cast ballots in the first two days of early voting in the runoff, while another 1.4 million have requested absentee ballots.
