President-elect Joe Biden will head to Georgia to campaign for the two Democratic candidates to runoff Senate races, incoming White House chief of staff Ron Klain said Sunday.

“Winning those two Senate seats in Georgia is important, but we’re going to do everything we can to help those two candidates,” Klain said Sunday on ABC News’ “This Week.”

“We’ve already moved people who were working on the Biden campaign on the recounts down there over to be supportive in the field work for our two candidates down there, and I expect you’ll see the president-elect travel down there before Election Day,” he continued.

The election could determine the balance of power in the Senate. But Klain said even if the Democrats prevail in the Jan. 5 Peach State election and flip control of the chamber, Biden will have his work cut out in negotiating issues that are priorities to the administration.

“We’re going to have a closely divided Senate kind of under any scenario. And I think one challenge that the president-elect has taken on is trying to work with members of both parties to build consensus for actions on things like economic relief, like climate change, like dealing with our other crises, our racism crisis, the challenge of fixing our immigration laws and, of course, obviously, fighting COVID,” Klain said.

Biden defeated Trump in Georgia, a state the president won in 2016 which hasn’t voted for a Democratic presidential candidate since Bill Clinton in 1992.

But Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler, the GOP incumbents, were forced into a runoff election against their Democratic challengers — Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock, respectively.

If Ossoff and Warnock win, the Senate would be evenly split 50-50 with Vice President-elect Kamala Harris poised to break any ties.
