With nearly two weeks gone since Election Day, it’s quite plain that a fair amount of time will pass before Americans learn the winner of the presidential race.

In the meantime, however, there are two Georgia Senate runoff races coming up in January. Residents of the Peach State can begin voting early on December 14; however, there’s a lot going on with these two runoffs, due to their significance.

If Sens. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue successfully beat their leftist opponents Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff, then the Senate will remain under GOP control; however, if either one of the GOP incumbents loses, then the Senate will be tied, leaving the vice president to make the deciding vote. If both Republican senators lose their seats, then Democrats will have control of the Senate.

Needless to say, the stakes are quite high. This is why these runoffs have gathered national attention with new developments constantly afoot, confirms Newsmax.

A Closer Look at the Georgia Senate Runoff Races

Democrats are more than eager to get Warnock and Ossoff into the Senate. Some have even talked about moving to the Peach State, solely for the sake of voting Democrat in the upcoming runoff races; as such, the state of Georgia had to release an announcement, warning that moving to Georgia solely to vote in the runoff races is a crime.

Both Sens. Perdue and Loeffler have remained heavily committed to winning their runoff races. They are both tearing into their Democrat candidates; Perdue and Loeffler also maintain that the stakes of the Georgia Senate runoff races couldn’t possibly be any higher.

During a Fox News interview yesterday, Perdue professed that the upcoming runoffs are the  “last line of defense” against Democrats’ radical, socialist agendas. Furthermore, the Georgia senator maintains that he will not debate opponent Jon Ossoff again, due to Ossoff’s failure to adequately defend himself.

Getting Out the Vote

Republicans have prioritized these Senate runoffs to the same extent as Democrats. GOP leaders from across the country have also come to Georgia to speak at events and host rallies in support of Loeffler and Perdue.

Getting out the vote in Georgia will matter big time for Republicans. There are already speculations that the two runoffs will be tight; the outcome of these two races most definitely carries the weight to impact the nation for quite some time to come.
