On the eve of Election Day in the Georgia runoffs, and just two days before his own fate is certified by Congress, President Donald Trump plans to rally.
Trump will headline an event Monday, Jan. 4 for Sens. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue, his second event in the state since his defeat in the November election.
The rally will be held at 7 p.m. at the Dalton Regional Airport. Gates open for entry four hours before that.
The President has been here before despite not being able to carry the state, which indicates the high stakes.
If Democrats take the seats, it’s a 50/50 chamber with incoming Vice President Kamala Harris serving as the tiebreaker vote if needed. However, the President’s frustrations with Republicans for distancing themselves from the Presidential election’s continued challenges have boiled over, suggesting his rallying for the Senators may only be a platform for his personal grievances.
That was the case the last time Trump came to the state.
In Valdosta, Trump kept discussing the allegedly “rigged election.”
“They cheated, and they rigged our Presidential election, but we’ll still win it,” the President vowed.
However, he did issue a GOTV call, in his own way.
“If you don’t vote,” the President said, “the socialists and communists win.”
The event continues a trend of events from both the outgoing and incoming administrations.
Vice President Mike Pence was in Georgia earlier this month, rallying for the “last line of defense” for President Donald Trump‘s achievements.
Biden was also in the state recently, noting that the Democratic challengers would be likely to “say yes” to his reform agenda.
“I need two Senators who are going to get things done, not get in the way,” Biden said Tuesday in Atlanta. “Two Senators who fight for progress, not get in the way. Two Senators ready to say yes, not the word no.”
In the now-familiar setting of a socially-distanced, stay-in-your-cars-and-honk event, VP-elect Harris made the urgent case to Georgians to flip their Senate seats blue and give her the gavel in case of a need for a tiebreaker vote.
