(PALM BEACH, FLA) — Will Former President Donald Trump delay his big announcement next week because a key Senate race, that could tip the balance of power, is going to a runoff?
Apparently Trump is undeterred by the Georgia Senate runoff and indicated Wednesday that he does not plan to move his “big announcement” scheduled for next week from his Mar-a-Lago estate on Palm Beach.
“We had tremendous success,” Trump told Fox News Digital. “Why would anything change?”
Republicans are still expected to take control of the House. The Senate, however, hangs in the balance, with many suggesting that the battle for control may come down to the December runoff race in Georgia.
The Associated Press projected that the Georgia race between Sen. Sen. Raphael Warnock (D) and Republican challenger Herschel Walker would head to a runoff on Wednesday, after neither breached the required 50 percent of the vote to win the election outright.

Trump adviser Stephen Miller told NewsMax on Wednesday that he is advising the former president to hold off on his announcement until after the runoff race.

“Everything over this next month is about Herschel Walker and making sure we get the win there,” Miller said, adding, “I’m advising the president to hold off until after the Georgia race, after Herschel Walker. Priorities A, B and C need to be about Herschel right now. This is bigger than anything else in the country. We gotta show the focus is on Georgia.”
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R), who easily won reelection on Tuesday, is also said to be eyeing a 2024 run for president.
