President Donald Trump was at his own rally on Saturday to elect Sense. Defend David Perdue and Kelly Loughfler and party chamber control. Then on Sunday, Loughfler and Warnock will take part in a discussion hosted by the Atlanta Press Club.
Kemp explained that he did not have this authority and denied the request.
The president has consistently denied that Republicans are determined to block the Senate’s Democratic control. A group of prominent Georgian Republicans, including former government Nathan Deal and former Sensei Johnny Isaacson and Saxe Chamblis, released a statement this week urging them to unite the party and focus on electing Loughfler and Perdue.
Republican National Committee chairwoman Rona McDaniel on Saturday dismissed concerns that sending a Trump message on electoral integrity could prevent Georgia Republicans from voting on Jan. 5.
“I think voters are very supportive of the president, they care about the state and I think they’ve handled the election,” she told Fox News.
There is little evidence that Trump will stop his continued attacks on the democratic process and the state officials responsible for the election.
Lofler, who ran in 20 special elections, was asked by the president in a recent phone call why he did not get a majority of votes on election day.
Pence said Friday that Republicans need to elect Perdue and Loflers to sustain the achievements of the Trump administration over the past four years.
“We need to send them back, because the Republican Senate majority may be the last defense to protect everything we have done to protect this country, to restore our economy, and to preserve the God-given freedom,” Pence said of Savannah.
Biden narrowly defeated Georgia to become the next Democratic presidential nominee after Bill Clinton in 1992 – Republicans had several advantages in both races. The state has not sent a Democrat to the Senate in 20 years. Last month, Perdue received tens of thousands more votes than Osaf. According to Cantor Media / CMAG data, Republicans spend about $ 38 million more on advertising than Democrats.
“The special election in Georgia is finally going to determine Biden’s presidency,” Obama said at a virtual event on Friday.
