The high-stakes Senate run-offs happening in Georgia shall remain in the national news for quite some time to come. GOP incumbent Sens. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue are in a fight against Democrats Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff. Whether or not Loeffler and Perdue defeat their opponents will determine the outcome of the Senate’s majority.

Right now, Republicans across the country are uniting and asking Georgia voters to do the same for Perdue and Loeffler. The Georgia GOP has already warned of the dangers to come if Democrats get access to the Senate majority, especially while the House of Representatives also has a left-wing majority.

Therefore, GOP Sen. Rand Paul is calling for Libertarian voters to rally behind Sens. Perdue and Loeffler in the Georgia run-offs, as confirmed by Breitbart News.

Libertarians for Perdue and Loefflerr

Yesterday, Sen. Paul spoke with Fox News; during this time, the Kentucky Republican drew attention to the over 100,000 Georgians who voted for Libertarian Shane Hazel in the Senate races. Paul then stated his belief that he thinks Georgia Libertarians could “find a place and reason” to vote for Perdue and Loeffler before explaining why.

According to the GOP senator, Republicans are, at the very least, “marginally” better than Democrats, when considering the Libertarian perspective. Paul also pointed out that securing wins for Perdue and Loeffler would block Democrats from having control over every single government branch; this is something that at least some Libertarians may be able to appreciate.

Finally, before the senator’s Fox News interview came to an end, Paul explained that he’ll invest time in persuading Georgia Libertarians to vote for Perdue and Loeffler in these run-offs.

Getting Out Georgia Voters for Perdue and Loeffler

Multiple polls in the Georgia run-offs have shown Perdue vs. Ossoff and Loeffler vs. Warnock in tight races; the polls also indicate a slim number of undecided voters who will likely have the power to determine the outcome of these races. Furthermore, it is not a stretch to assume that at least some Libertarian Georgians remain undecided.

Last week, the vice president traveled to Georgia to stump for both GOP senators. While in Gainesville, Pence also spoke about the importance of outreach to Libertarians, Independents, and other third-party voters.
