Trump campaigns on behalf of GOP candidates in Georgia Senate runoff

Description:

President Trump will be lending his support to the two Republican incumbents running in January's Senate runoff as he campaigns in Georgia Saturday afternoon. Mr. Trump hopes he can provide the party a boost in the Peach State, as his election campaign continues to dispute the results of the 2020 election. Vice News political correspondent Liz Landers joins CBSN to discuss whether or not the president's support will help or hurt the Republicans' chances of reclaiming the Senate majority next month.


Former Democratic presidential candidate Julián Castro is campaigning on behalf of Jon Ossoff and Rev. Raphael Warnock ahead of Georgia's two Senate runoffs on Tuesday. Castro joined "Red and Blue" to discuss why the Latino and youth vote are crucial to Democrats' victory.
More than 2.5 million early votes have already been cast in Georgia's Senate runoff elections. Tia Mitchell, a Washington correspondent for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, joined CBSN with the latest on the races that will decide which party controls the Senate.
There are just two weeks left until Georgia's Senate runoff elections. Both Republicans and Democrats have made visits to the state to stump for their candidates in a race that will ultimately determine which party will control the Senate. Meantime, early voting is in full swing, with data showing more than 1.6 million people having cast their ballots. Tia Mitchell, Washington correspondent for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, joins CBSN's Tom Hanson with her analysis.
Votes continue to be tabulated in the Georgia Senate runoff elections, but official results are not expected until Wednesday. In a tweet, President Trump seemed to imply votes yet to be reported from heavily Democratic areas would not be legitimate. CBSN political reporter Caitlin Huey-Burns and CBS News reporter Adam Brewster join CBSN's "Red & Blue" anchor Elaine Quijano to discuss the votes left to be counted.
