Georgia runoffs

"The US political calendar in 2021 will kick off with the run-off elections for Georgia’s two Senate seats.

No candidate got the required 50% of the popular vote in the presidential elections so it will be a straight race between the Democrat and Republican candidates in the absence of any other contenders. This will be critical for how aggressive Joe Biden can go with his legislative agenda. Should the Democrats win both seats, this will leave a 50-50 tie in the Senate, with Vice President Kamala Harris given the deciding vote on any piece of legislation that is split down party lines. This would facilitate a more ambitious policy change on tax, regulation and spending as there would be less need for watering down a piece of legislation to get Republicans onside."
