Ossoff and Warnock are locked in tight races with incumbent Republican Sens. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue. The Democratic Party needs to win both races to secure a 50-50 tie in the Senate. In that scenario, Vice President-elect Kamala Harris would serve as a tiebreaker on key votes.

Donations to the “Flip Georgia Fund” will be divided equally between the Warnock and Ossoff campaigns and the Democratic Party, according to the Act Blue fundraising page.
