Sunday shows preview: Senate candidates brace for Georgia runoffs; government continues coronavirus vaccine roll out

Georgia’s Senate runoff races on Tuesday and the federal government’s coronavirus vaccine rollout are expected to dominate this week’s Sunday talk shows.

Georgia’s Senate candidates are gearing up for their last campaign sprint before Tuesday’s runoff races, both of which will determine whether the GOP remains in control of the upper chamber.

Just days before the election, Perdue announced that he was quarantining after coming in contact with someone who tested positive for the coronavirus.

Earlier this week, U.S. District Judge Leslie Abrams Gardner, sister of former gubernatorial candidate and voting rights activist Stacey Abrams, ruled that Georgia's Muscogee and Ben Hill Counties could not invalidate thousands of voter registrations based on unverified change of address data ahead of Jan. 5. 

Abrams, who played a critical role in registering voters in the Peach state for the 2020 presidential election, will appear on ABC’s “This Week” and CNN’s “State of the Union.”

The Senate race has already garnered record voter turnout.

Over 3 million people have already voted early in the runoffs, according to the Atlanta Journal- Constitution, breaking a previous record for a Georgia runoff, when 2.1 million people voted in 2008.

Perdue is scheduled to appear on Fox News's "Sunday Morning Futures," while Ossoff is expected to appear on CNN's “State of the Union.” Loeffler will appear on "Fox News Sunday." 

Meanwhile, the U.S. is continuing to roll out the coronavirus vaccine, although some officials have acknowledged that the Trump administration has fallen short of its inoculation goal.

The administration planned to have administered 20 million vaccinations by the end of 2020, but only about 3 million have received the shot, according to data from The New York Times.
