Mississippians are keenly aware of the impact the two January 5, 2021, Georgia U.S. Senate runoffs will have on policy debates over the next two years. The roles of Magnolia State Senators Roger Wicker and Cindy Hyde-Smith also hang in the balance, depending on which party is in the majority.

With the U.S. Senate currently at 52-48 in favor of Republicans, and control of the White House edging toward Democrat Joe Biden, losing both Georgia Senate seats could place Democrats in control of the U.S. Senate with Biden’s running mate, Kamala Harris, seated as Vice President and President of the Senate wielding the 50-50 tie-breaking vote.
