President Donald Trump stomped for David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler in Georgia in hopes they win their Senate election coming up in January.
Trump gave his encouragement to their supporters, telling them to put their differences aside and make sure they still vote.
“Friends of mine say we are not going to vote because we are angry about the presidential election,” Trump said. “Don’t listen to my friends.”
Republican National Committee Chair Ronna McDaniel had to push back against the claims of voter fraud last week after a voter in the Atlanta suburb of Marietta, Ga., a former conservative stronghold in the rapidly changing state, claimed the pair of Senate runoffs had already been “decided.”
At least one attorney, Lin Wood, was suggesting that people not vote for Perdue or Loeffler, as if they didn’t deserve the Republican vote in Georgia. But that same attorney was called a “clown” by Ted Cruz, and also called a “grifter” by Dan Crenshaw. It appears that several big name Republicans are calling this out and suggesting how ludicrous it is, to tell Republicans not to vote for other Republicans. Despite their differences, if people don’t vote, then the Democrats will likely take those seats.
Here’s part of Trump’s speech that he delivered in support of Perdue and Loeffler. It is now up to the voters in Georgia to decide what to do next.
