President Donald Trump will hold a rally in Georgia to support Sens. David Perdue (R-Ga.) and Kelly Loeffler (R-Ga.) in the run-up to the Senate race. There is a high expectation for the outcome, as the election will confirm which party will have the majority in the Senate.
The Republican National Committee will organize the Victory Rally in Dalton, Georgia, at 7 p.m. (local time) on Jan. 4, 2021, the day before the Senate runoff election.
Among the speakers will be Perdue and Loeffler. And now President Trump himself has confirmed that he will take part. Also speaking will be a candidate for Public Service Commissioner Lauren “Bubba” McDonald, and other republicans in Dalton.
“On behalf of two GREAT Senators, @sendavidperdue & @KLoeffler, I will be going to Georgia on Monday night, January 4th., to have a big and wonderful RALLY. So important for our Country that they win!” the president said on his Twitter account.

The Jan. 5 runoff in Georgia is critical because control of the Senate is at stake. The Republicans currently hold 50 seats, compared to 48 for the Democrats.
The president held a rally in Valdosta, Georgia, on Dec. 5 to support Perdue and Loeffler against Democratic candidates Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock.
The president said it was “the most important congressional runoff, probably in American history.”
“At stake in this election is control of the U.S. Senate, and that really means control of this country,” President Trump said in Valdosta.
“The voters of Georgia will determine which party runs every committee, writes every piece of legislation, controls every single taxpayer dollar,” he added.
One of the biggest criticisms of the Democratic Party is its bias toward the radical left.
“Very simply, you will decide whether your children will grow up in a socialist country or whether they will grow up in a free country,” Trump continued.
“And I will tell you this … These people want to go further than socialism. They want to go into a communistic form of government. I have no doubt about it,” he said.
Democratic candidates Ossoff and Warnock have often been criticized because of their recurrent comments against the police force and their closeness to radicalized sectors of the left that are pushing for the police’s defunding.
It is not surprising that almost a hundred Georgian sheriffs and the state’s Fraternal Order of Police have backed the Republican duo for the Senate.
Loeffler joined the voices of several Republican Congress members calling on the Justice Department to investigate the son of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden in the face of allegations of fraudulent business dealings with foreign companies. Acting Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen now heads the Justice Department.
“Hunter Biden and the Biden family have profited off Joe Biden’s political career for 50 YEARS. THEY ARE CORRUPT,” Loeffler said. “We need a full and transparent investigation by a special prosecutor now,” she said on her Twitter account.

The Republican candidates have received other support from Republican Party leaders who agree that their candidacies represent a barrier to advancing the Democratic Party’s leftist agenda in Congress.
“So what else is at stake is the liberals feel like if they can’t win by playing by the rules, they just want to change the rules, right? You know one of the first things they want to do? They want to make D.C. and Puerto Rico a state so that they can get more liberals in the Senate,” explained former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley.
She alluded to Loeffler and Perdue, saying of them, “Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue are our first line of defense to make sure that doesn’t happen.”
More than 2 million people in Georgia had already cast their votes by Christmas Day, indicating that the second round is on its way to breaking a new record of citizen participation in the elections.
