There is a remarkably important election coming up in the state of Georgia. The state has been reliably red for years, but just flipped for Joe Biden this year. And if Democrats Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff win, Biden will have the house and senate in his corner.
In an effort to prevent this from happening, Donald Trump is traveling to Valdosta, Georgia Saturday night for a rally. But Trump is likely to talk more about himself than GOP candidates Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue. While flying to tonight’s event, the president blasted Republican Georgia governor Brian Kemp.
Trump tweeted, “Between Governor Dog Ducey of Arizona and Governor Brian Kemp of Georgia, the Democrat Party could not be happier. They fight harder against us than do the Radical Left Dems. If they were with us, we would have already won both Arizona and Georgia.”
The president continued, “We received more LEGAL votes by far. All I can do is run, campaign, and be a good (great!) President – it is 100% up to the states to manage the election. Republicans will NEVER forget this.”
The Republican party which is looking to unify before the election, sure isn’t getting help from Trump. New York Times scribe Maggie Haberman shared the president’s tweet, writing, “This is decidedly not the message Rs want him delivering when he gets to his rally.”
