All eyes are on Georgia as voters in the Peach State will determine the majority in the U.S. Senate on January 5. Republicans have 50 seats in the Senate, while Democrats have 48 (technically 46 with two Independents who caucus with them) and likely incoming Vice President Kamala Harris to get them to 51, should Democrats win both Georgia races. Turnout is usually low in runoff elections, but mail-in voting may change the game.
