Opinion: Georgia Residents Must Vote for Sens. Perdue, Loeffler in Runoff Elections


In Georgia, Republican Senators David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler are running for re-election. Seeking to take their seats are liberal Democrats Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock. Ultimately, the outcome of these senatorial runoffs will determine whether Republicans maintain or forfeit their majority in the Senate.

Georgians have to get out and vote for Perdue and Loeffler. President Trump has called for Georgia residents to back these GOP senators, as have other Republicans and conservative groups. Unfortunately, though, there is some talk of Georgia conservatives sitting out the runoffs due to their displeasure with how state election officials handled the 2020 presidential race.

This is absolute lunacy and must be stomped out.

What happens if Georgia Republicans don’t vote?

If Georgians don’t turn out for Perdue and Loeffler in droves, there’s a real possibility that Ossoff and Warnock will get elected. If this happens, Republicans will lose their current majority in the Senate; also, Democrats will have an unfettered monopoly on power in Washington D.C.
