The country will not descend into socialism if Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-Ga.), has anything to do with it.
Georgia will resist any attempts to drive the country down a socialist road said Loeffler, speaking to Harris Faulkner on Fox News’s “Outnumbered Overtime.”
She said the “left-wing media” and her Democratic opponent, Rev. Raphael Warnock, would drive the country toward socialism.
Loeffler responded to a recent New York Times article that probed into her life and upbringing, and her staunch support of the president. The article had suggested her career on Wall Street was a contradiction to her own portrayal as an advocate for working-class Georgians.
“I was born and raised on a farm, grew up working in the fields, waitressed my way through school, and built a successful career, based on free enterprise,” she said. “That’s what I’m fighting for. Democrats want to bring socialism to our country. Raphael Warnock would be a rubber stamp for socialism, and we’re not going to let that stand. … The left-wing media wants to take us toward socialism, and we’re not going to stand for that here in Georgia.”
Loeffler has spoken of her total support for President Trump and she is fully supportive of the president’s fight to expose the voter fraud that has robbed him of re-election.
Loeffler and Sen. David Perdue (R-Ga.), will need to win the runoff election on Jan. 5 to enable Republicans to hold the U.S. Senate majority for the next four years.
Both Republicans have been attacked by Warnock and Perdue’s Democrat challenger Jon Ossoff over their support for the president.
“We’re fighting for the president because he’s fought for us for four years, and he’s continuing to fight for us,” Loeffler said. “We have been helping deliver relief under this pandemic, relief that the Democrats have blocked time and again, and David Perdue and I have done that every single day.”
The election is vital for both sides, and with so much riding on this election President Trump, Vice President Pence, and the former ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley have lent their support to the pair in Georgia.
Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, and former President Barack Obama have thrown their support behind Democrats.
“We are the firewall to stopping socialism in America, right here in Georgia,” Loeffler said. “We know that we have to hold the line. The American dream is on the ballot, and we know that because Chuck Schumer said he was going to take Georgia and change America. … If we don’t hold the line here in Georgia, we will see the election of our first Marxist senator, and we can’t let that happen.”
