The President-elect declined to wade into a burgeoning scandal involving Trump

President-elect Joe Biden went to Georgia on Monday, the day after explosive revelations that President Donald Trump pressured state officials there to find votes to deliver him Georgia's presidential race.

And he said nothing about Trump's behavior, even as Biden encouraged voters to send Democratic nominees Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff to the U.S. Senate in a runoff election on Tuesday.

Biden took his verbal shots at Trump, lambasting the "god-awful" effort the outgoing administration has made in getting the COVID-19 vaccine out to states and into the arms of the public. But the only reference Biden made to the stunning, hour-long phone call Trump made to Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger was bafflement that Trump was still trying to stay in office if he didn't want to do the job of president.

"The president spends more time whining and complaining than doing something about the problem. I don't know why he still wants the job. He doesn't want to do the work," Biden told a rally in Atlanta, flanked by Ossoff.

Wins by Ossoff and Warnock over GOP Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler, respectively, on Tuesday would do a great deal for his own Democratic agenda, Biden said. A dual Democratic win would put the Senate at 50-50, making Vice President-elect Kamala Harris the tie-breaker and effectively giving the majority to the Democrats.

But that doesn't mean Ossoff and Warnock would be a rubber stamp for him, Biden noted. "I don't believe your United States senators work for me. They'll work for Georgia. They should be loyal to you, to Georgia, and to the United States Constitution period," Biden said.
