Military families were integral to President-elect Joe Biden’s victory in Georgia and may determine the outcomes of the two Jan. 5 Senate runoffs that will in turn decide the balance of power in Washington D.C., reported the Wall Street Journal.

Georgia has the sixth-largest population of active-duty, reserve and civilian defense workers in the country, according to the Wall Street Journal (WSJ). Nine Georgia counties with strong connections to the United States military reportedly shifted towards Biden in the Nov. 3 presidential election. The small shift helped Biden eke out a 11,779-vote victory in a state that recorded nearly 5 million votes, according to The New York Times — making Biden the first Democratic candidate to carry the state since former President Bill Clinton in 1992.
