In the final weekend of the 2020 General Election campaign, Democratic Vice Presidential nominee, Senator Kamala Harris (D-California), spoke in the parking lot of the Infinite Energy Arena in Gwinnett County this morning. She highlighted Joe Biden’s legislative priorities including social justice, police reform, tax reform, and climate change.

“You all will decide who will be the next president of the United States,” said Harris. “I am glad to be back in Georgia.”

According to the latest polling data aggregated by RealClearPolitics, Georgia is in a dead heat between Biden and President Donald J. Trump. Biden has a 0.8 percentage point lead in the average of all polls. The Monmouth poll has Biden with a 4% lead over Trump heading to Election Day.

“We are in the middle of four crises taking place at the same time. We are in the midst of a public health crisis of a proportion we have not seen since World War II,” Harris said. “Over 225,000 people have died, many of whom tragically of their last days weren’t able to be with the people they loved due to the nature of this virus. Nine million people have contracted the virus, with untold long-term health consequences. It didn’t have to be this way. It didn’t have to be this bad.”

Joined with Harris was former Georgia Minority House Speaker Stacey Abrams, Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate, Jon Ossoff, U.S. Representative Lucy McBath and Democratic candidate for Georgia’s Seventh Congressional District, Carolyn Bourdeaux.

“Georgia is a battleground state and we are on the move and we are on everybody’s mind,” McBath said.

During the rally, high winds forced Harris off of the stage, however, she continued to speak from the ground.

The Trump campaign released a statement in response to Harris’ visit Sunday, writing,

“Georgians know President Trump is the only leader capable of leading America with his promises made, promises kept agenda and will unilaterally reject Joe Biden and his radical politics.”
