Republicans are worried that the confusion caused by Trump’s attitude and his false comments on election behavior in a key swing state that Biden won for Democrats could thwart his party’s efforts to retain control of the Senate.

The runoff is scheduled for early January for two Senate seats in the state, and if the Democrats win two seats, it will give them control over the upper house as well as the House of Representatives.

Republicans are anxious to get Georgia voters to come to the polls in January, to volunteer for their Senate campaigns and – most importantly – to dig deep into their pockets to pay for unexpected runoff races.

Trump’s remarks in particular have sparked conspiracy theories that the state’s electoral system is tough, and have prompted some of his supporters to boycott the upcoming vote – something that local Georgia Republicans do not want seriously. “His demonization of Georgia’s entire electoral system is undermining his party’s chances of keeping the Senate,” Politico warned in an article published.
