His supporters will protest on his behalf this evening and into tomorrow.

Though it came a little late in the game, donors have given quite a large sum of money to Republican Senators Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue ahead of the runoff election today, a race that will determine the tilt of power in the Senate. Much of Joe Biden’s legislative priorities hinge on today’s results.
Perdue’s campaign recently received a minimum of 30 individual donations, each valued between $1,000 and $2,800. Loeffler, too, received a minimum of a dozen donations. Both senators found that this recent surge in money came from people in the financial or real estate industry.
