Both President Trump and President-elect Joe Biden traveled to Georgia to campaign on behalf of the candidates, and hundreds of millions of dollars were spent on advertising ahead of election day on Tuesday.

The runoffs come after Biden narrowly defeated Trump in the state in the 2020 presidential race, becoming the first Democrat since Bill Clinton in 1992 to win the state.
