President Biden and Vice President Harris will be in Georgia on Friday to tout the $1,400 stimulus checks that will go out to many Americans as part of the $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief package that Biden signed last week.
"On Friday, President Biden and Vice President Harris will travel to Georgia," White House press secretary Jen Psaki said at a press briefing on Monday. "As you all already know, to underscore how they and congressional Democrats fulfilled their promise in delivering for $1400 dollar checks to finish the job of $2000 in direct relief to millions of Americans."

Some progressive voters and even lawmakers have expressed displeasure with the $1400 amount after Biden campaigned in Georgia for then-Senate candidates Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff ahead of their Jan. 6 runoff election. Warnock and Ossoff, now senators, heavily campaigned on the promise of $2,000 checks.
