As the final leg of his presidential campaign crescendos, Democratic candidate Joe Biden is hoping to pull off what hasn’t been done in decades; Biden will aim to be the first Democrat to win Georgia since former President Bill Clinton managed the feat in 1992.
In 1968, Georgia voted for Independent George Wallace in an election that marked the last time a third-party candidate received any electoral votes.
Georgia has 16 electoral votes up for grabs in the 2020 election — and Biden is not wasting any time.
“[Biden] understands the vitality of the Sun Belt and the importance of not just winning this election, but setting the table for success for the Senate and for the country,” said former gubernatorial nominee Stacey Abrams. “Georgia has been ground zero for many of these conversations.”
