Republicans are making efforts to keep the Senate majority through a couple of Georgian runoffs that are seen as a “firewall” against Democrats ’agendas after President Trump lost his re-election offer.
Sens. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue are trying to push back the Jan. 5 races of Democratic candidates Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff, which will determine which party controls the Senate. If Ossoff and Warnock win, the Democrats would ensure a 50-50 split in the upper chamber and Kamala Harris, elected vice president, would cast a tie.
“We are the last line of defense,” Perdue said in an interview with “Fox & Friends” on Tuesday. “These two seats determine the majority of the Senate. We will deny this [Sen. Chuck] Schumer this majority, defend everything that President Trump has done over the past four years, and make sure the people of Georgia know this. “
RECEIVING MAJOR INVESTMENTS FROM THE REPUBLIC OF GEORGIA
Meanwhile, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Senator Todd Young, the outgoing chairman of the National Republic Senate Committee, tell their GOP colleagues that they must all help Perdue and Loeffler stay in place, writes The Wall Street Journal, which reports to the GOP. referred to. helpers.
Republicans are teaming up to help Perdue and Loeffler raise cash for two of the most expensive races in history; the Georgia Battleground Fund – a joint fundraising joint venture between Loeffler, Perdue and the NRSC – is a 50-state operation. Both parties are expected to spend an excessive amount in the coming weeks.
Sens. Joni Ernst, R-Iowa and Marco Rubio, R-Fla. They both held meetings with their GOP counterparts in Georgia, while Senator Rob Portman (R-Ohio) joined McConnell in a virtual event with supporters of Perdue and Loeffler, the Journal wrote. McConnell is planning three more virtual events next week.
GEORGIA SENATE RUNOFF ELECTION ANNOUNCEMENTS FOR USD 120 MILLION
The Journal also reported that Senator Ted Cruz of R-Texas, in collaboration with the Conservative Group Club for Growth, is raising $ 10 million for the runoff and mobilizing a group to knock on a million doors by Jan. 5.
– We have a battle in our hands now, people. It will be long. We are the firewall. Not only for the Senate, but also for the future of our country, ”Loeffler said during a campaign event two weeks ago. “We’ll be your voice in Washington if you’re your voice on January 5th.”
On Tuesday, he reiterated that message, saying Republicans “must save our country” after a Conservative commentator tweeted that Democrats would abolish the filibustor, expand the Supreme Court, raise taxes and cut military spending if the Senate wins management. (Moderate Democratic Democrat Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia has already effectively reduced Democrats ’chances of destroying the filibuster and expanding the court).
