In exactly six days, the Georgia special runoffs are coming to a close. In the Peach State, early voting wraps up tomorrow, leaving Tuesday, January 5 as the last chance for Georgians to make their voices heard in this election.

Right now, Georgia Democrats Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock are struggling in ways that their GOP rivals Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler are not.

Despite raising record amounts of cash, Ossoff and Warnock are still seeing their fundraising decline; furthermore, their campaign managers sent out distressing memos, articulating that Ossoff and Warnock don’t have the resources for direct contact with Georgia voters.

Perdue and Loeffler aren’t having these issues. As a matter of fact, the two Republican senators seeking re-election are consistently on the ground, in direct communication with Georgians, and preparing themselves for victory on Tuesday.

In turn, this has caused Democrats like failed 2018 Georgia gubernatorial candidate to lash out at Perdue and Loeffler, according to Breitbart News.

Stacey Abrams’ Involvement in the Georgia Runoffs

In 2018, Abrams ran against now-current Governor Brian Kemp for the seat he presently occupies. Abrams never conceded to Kemp; however, she’s worked extensively on the behalf of Democrat candidates. This involves a good amount of activism and campaigning for Ossoff and Warnock.

On Tuesday, Abrams went after Perdue and Loeffler while speaking with MSNBC. The failed candidate for Georgia governor declared that both GOP senators are only occupied with winning their races, rather than assisting Georgians. After calling Loeffler and Perdue, “feckless hypocrites,” Abrams went on to falsely accuse the Georgia Republicans of “profiteering” from COVID-19.

Finally, the failed candidate for Georgia’s governor declared that “core values” of leadership have come under attack by Perdue and Loeffler.

Meanwhile at the Perdue and Loeffler Campaigns

The two Georgia senators have not publicly responded to remarks from Abrams. Instead, their focus is on direct voter contact with Georgians; this involves bus tours and other events where Loeffler and Perdue can communicate with the people they want to send them back to Congress.

Both Republican senators have repeatedly warned that policies of Ossoff and Warnock would hurt Georgians and the rest of America. Defunding the police, opening up prisons, socializing healthcare, increasing taxes, etc,. would crush Americans; to make matters worse, the aforementioned policies are only a fraction of what Ossoff and Warnock would support in Congress.
