Our correspondent Rachel Scott, is in Atlanta with the very latest. Good morning, Rachel. Martha Good Morning, and Georgia already seeing record voter turnout for a special election.

He isn't self quarantine after coming into close contact with a campaign staffer who tested positive for covert 19. And the stakes could just not be higher. Republicans are calling this their last line of defense Democrats say what happens here in Georgia will set the course of Joe Biden's presidency. So to pull this off, Democrats would have to win both of their races that would bring the split in the Senate to 50 50 and then Vice President elect Kamila Harris would serve As the tie breaking vote. But if one of those Democratic candidates lose just one of their races, Republicans will be hanging on to majority in the Senate. And at this point, it's all about turning out the base to vote. So that's why tomorrow you will see President Trump and President elect Joe Biden campaigning here, he don't know. Biden was the first Democrat to win the state of Georgia and nearly 30 years.

We did very well in vote by mail. We did very well in early vote, but we know Election Day is going to be the likely high turnout day for Republicans, So we need Democrats who haven't cast their ballots to turn out. If they have any questions to go toe I will vote dot com to find their polling places and two months ago even is Joe Biden was winning Georgia John Assaraf trailed Republican David Perdue by nearly 90,000 votes and in the special election. The Republican candidates combined for nearly 50,000 more votes than the Democrats. I know that roughly 75,000 new voters have been registered since early November. How certain are you that those are Democrats were very certain that most of those were Democrats. Given the composition based on race and age, and let's be clear. We know a number of the people who voted for Joe Biden. As Democrats sometimes just skip the rest of the ballot. They came out to vote for the president because of a number of low propensity voters who came out for Democrats. What we're so excited about is that we haven't stopped reaching those voters. Millions of contacts have been made. Thousands of new registrations have been held, and we know that at least 100,000 people who did not vote in the general election are now voting in this election, and they again are disproportionately young and disproportionately people of color and does the fact that Biden outperform the Senate races indicate that his win really was more about President Trump than it was representative of some kind of ideological shift to the Left in the state. Not at all. We know that for new voters, especially new voters of color, There's a tendency to only vote in races where they are certain of the outcome. They know Joe Biden. Joe Biden's been a part of American politics for 40 plus years and so for a number of new voters, they're going to vote on Lee when they're confident. That's why we spent this time over the last nine weeks, educating voters about Jon Ossoff's and Raphael Warnock.
