Both President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence will campaign for the Georgia Senate runoff election to determine which political party will control the Chamber.
President Trump will be traveling to Georgia tomorrow. He will deliver a speech in Valdosta, accompanied by Republican incumbents David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler. The state’s Republicans have raised concerns that the president’s presence will undermine their chances of winning the runoff elections scheduled for January. The president has repeatedly attacked Georgia Governor Brian Kemp (R) and state officials since losing the state to President-elect Joe Biden in this year’s presidential election.
Indeed, earlier this week L Lin Wood, a lawyer who filed a series of lawsuits on Trump’s behalf alleging the election was fraudulent, announced that Georgia Republicans should not vote in the runoff elections.
“We’re not going to vote on another machine from China on January 5th. You’re not going to fool the Georgians again, ”Wood said said. “If Kelly Loeffler wants your voice, if David Perdue wants your voice, they have to deserve it. They must publicly, repeatedly and consistently demand: “Brian Kemp: call a special session of the Georgian legislature.” And if they don’t, if Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue don’t, they don’t deserve your vote. Don’t give it to them. Why would you go back and vote on another rigged election? “
Vice President Pence is en route to Georgia, where he will visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and attend a briefing on Covid-19 vaccines. He will later meet with Governor Kemp and blunt for the President in Savannah.
The runoff election in Georgia is scheduled for January 5th.
