Republican pollster and strategist Frank Luntz told CNBC on Monday that President Donald Trump's persistent attacks on election integrity could hurt the GOP in the upcoming Georgia Senate runoffs, which will determine the balance of power in the upper chamber. The GOP holds a two-seat advantage in the Senate, 50-48, according to NBC News projections. Trump's personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, also has promoted far-fetched conspiracy theories as part of an attempt to overturn the election result. Luntz said his recent polling indicates Republican voters in Georgia appear more interested in the January runoffs, with 80% of GOP voters saying they're definitely planning to vote compared with 70% of Democrats. "We still find that 55% of Trump voters in Georgia ... believe Donald Trump was elected president and so they're mad," Luntz added.

WASHINGTON — Democratic senators are calling on President-elect Joe Biden to use executive power to advance goals such as tackling climate change, relieving student debt and creating a more progressive immigration system. "I think President Biden has significant executive power. "From Treasury to State to Interior (departments) and the financial regulators, climate action and climate risk management has to be infused into literally everything," he said. Even if Democrats capture both Georgia seats and take control of the Senate, McConnell would retain the power to filibuster legislation and force a 60-vote threshold. Jamal Brown, a spokesman for Biden's transition team, said his agenda will include executive power.

As Joe Biden appeared to be on the path to winning the 2020 presidential election, several companies and business groups went on a hiring spree for lobbyists who could influence the incoming administration. Steve Ricchetti, Biden's campaign chairman and a former lobbyist himself, is in line to possibly get a job within the administration. They started lobbying on Nov. 4 and are focused on "disaster relief," the lobbying report said. Biden hosted a joint meeting Monday with labor union leaders and the chief executives of major tech, retail and auto companies. A Biden transition spokesman did not respond to a request for comment.

If they do, as prediction markets imply, Mr. Biden has a solid working history with the majority leader, Mitch McConnell. Mr. Biden’s first major appointments will come today: a coronavirus task force. Mr. Biden’s focus is at home, so pandemic relief is the priority even if allies press him to act on tariffs. Mr. Biden is expected to unwind Mr. Trump’s deregulatory push on payday lenders, banking discrimination, the Dodd-Frank law and other issues. To help with the reversal, Mr. Biden is expected to tap Gary Gensler, a former regulator in the Obama administration, as an adviser, according to The Wall Street Journal.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Georgia Democratic activist Stacey Abrams said on Sunday that her party would pour unprecedented resources into two runoff Senate races in the traditionally Republican-leaning state that will determine control of the top U.S. legislative chamber. Former Georgia House of Representatives Minority Leader Stacey Abrams speaks ahead of former President Barack Obama's address in Atlanta, Georgia, U.S., one day before the election, November 2, 2020. The election will likely decide whether Democrats can win seats they need to gain control of the Senate. Republicans are currently on course to win 50 seats in the 100-seat chamber while Democrats have 48. That control of the Senate rests on the outcome should also drive Democrats to the polls, Abrams said.
