Pending a vote on a long-awaited coronavirus relief package by lawmakers, Ivanka Trump postponed several campaign events in Georgia.

President Donald Trump’s daughter tweeted Monday that she was in Fulton County, Georgia, for an early voting event with GOP Sens. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue. Both Republican senators are on the ballot in a runoff election scheduled to take place Jan. 5. The results of the race will determine what party gains control of the Senate.  

“Due to the COVID relief vote today, we’ll be postponing the rest of today’s events,” she tweeted. “We must focus on what’s most important- support for hard working Americans. Relief is on the way!”

Following the Fulton County event, the group was scheduled to participate in a campaign rally in Walton County, Georgia, and make an appearance in Suwanee for a fireside chat. Perdue and Loeffler also rescheduled their appearances so they can head to Washington, D.C., to vote on the stimulus package.
