Here's where Kamala Harris, Ivanka Trump will be today in Georgia

The two are making campaign stops for the Jan. 5 U.S. Senate runoffs.

ATLANTA — Two political heavyweights will be in Georgia pushing for voters to head to the polls and vote in the U.S. Senate runoffs on Jan. 5. 

Vice President-elect Kamala Harris will travel to Columbus, Georgia to campaign with Democratic nominees for U.S Senate Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff. She will reportedly attend an outdoor car rally at around 12:30 p.m.

Due to "votes in Washington," Harris will not travel to Gwinnett County as originally planned, the Democratic Party said in a statement.

Ivanka Trump, the daughter of President Donald Trump, will make a stop in metro Atlanta to campaign for the Republican Senators David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler.

Trump will be at a Fulton County "Early Vote Rally" at Olde Blind Dog Irish Pub in Milton at 12 p.m. 

She was supposed to attend a fireside chat in Suwanee, however, it was postponed because the senators would not be able to attend. A Walton County GOP rally in Monroe at 4 p.m. was also called off, but is reportedly back on since the senators can now attend.  

Ossoff and Warnock are trying to unseat incumbents Loeffler and Perdue in the runoff races on Jan. 5

The races have drawn significant national attention with the balance of power in the U.S. Senate to be determined by how Georgia votes.

With Republicans holding a 50-48 edge, if both Democrats were to win it would create an even 50-50 split on votes that would be decided by Harris' tiebreaker vote as vice president.

Early voting in the races began last week, and already more than a million votes have been cast, according to state figures.
