Live updates: Ossoff reports more than $106M fundraising in last 2 months in Georgia runoffs

The elections will be held on Jan. 5

Georgia’s GOP incumbent senators fighting to keep their seats in the special runoff find themselves in a tough position after President Trump’s eleventh-hour demands for Congress to approve $2,000 stimulus check payments in coronavirus aid.

Sen. Kelley Loeffler, in a tight race against Democratic candidate, Rev. Raphael Warnock, said she would consider voting for the new figure, which Democrats originally pushed in the stimulus package if it diverted funds away from "wasteful spending." 

Meanwhile, Democratic candidate Jon Ossoff, who is challenging Sen. David Perdue's seat, reported raising a whopping $106.8 million over the last two months with major-party control of the Senate on the line.

Fast Facts

    • Ossoff raised more than $106 million between mid-October and mid-December
    • Loeffler reported about $64 million in that time
    • Warnock and Perdue were expected to file soon

The elections will be held on Jan. 5, but millions of early voters have already cast their ballots. The races have also attracted huge spending from outside groups and political action committees.
