Tuesday’s Senate runoff election in Georgia, as you’ve probably heard, is literally one of the most important elections in modern American history, given the possibility that if Democrats win, they’ll essentially be handed a blank check to pass as much radical progressive legislation as they possibly can.
That’s why President Donald Trump stepped in to do everything he could to remind Georgia Republican voters at a Monday night rally that the only thing that matters on Tuesday is that they need to get to the voting booth and cast their votes for GOP Sens. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue, according to Breitbart.
The president wasted no time in his last-minute rally in pointing out how dangerous Democratic challengers Jon Ossoff and Ralphael Warnock would be for America if they happened to pull out a victory on Tuesday. He labeled them the two most liberal candidates in history.
The president went on to trash the two Democrats as “fringe extremists” while vowing that they would “wreck everything Georgians hold dear.” He also dialed in on Ossoff, rattling off a number of negative comments about the challenger, even saying he would support a “socialist takeover” of the American healthcare system.
The president elicited some laughter after he explained that he’s not a big fan of doing rallies and said that if Loeffler and Perdue win on Tuesday, he’ll get no credit and if they happen to lose, he’ll likely shoulder all of the blame.
As expected, Trump used a vast majority of the Georgia rally to air his grievances over the outcome of the 2020 election, including many attacks on Republican Gov. Brian Kemp and Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, who he believes haven’t done enough to help overturn the 2020 election results in the Peach State.
In order to secure control of the Senate through the tie-breaking power of Vice President-elect Kamala Harris, both Ossoff and Warnock will have to win on Tuesday. If only one of them wins, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) will maintain control, albeit by a razor-thin majority.
Only time will tell if Trump’s Monday night rally had any effect on Republican voters in the state, but it’s clear from the crowd size and excitement that it definitely didn’t hurt to make a last-minute attempt at energizing his base.
