The Georgia Senate runoffs are now just two weeks away, and based on the way the two incumbents were treated on Monday during a campaign event that featured Ivanka Trump, Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue might want to start packing up their offices.
According to the New York Times, Loeffler and Perdue shared the stage with Ivanka at a rally in Milton, Georgia, a rural community 27 miles away from the City of Atlanta, with the first daughter telling attendees:
An oppressive government? Isn’t that what we’ve had for the last four years with a madman in the Oval Office?
Ivanka went on to say more polite things about the two senators, both of whom were heckled by pro-Trump partisans in the crowd:
“Besides the shared sense of significance, the rallies had little in common. Mr. Perdue and Ms. Loeffler were both heckled by members of the audience, who called on them to more forcefully back Mr. Trump’s attempts to subvert the election. Some held signs calling for a special session of Congress to overturn the Electoral College vote, while others pushed the senators to vote against certifying the election results.”
One woman at the rally said she was furious with Loeffler:
“Nancy Babbitt, who attended the rally, was upset that Ms. Loeffler had, to this point, refused to say whether she would vote to certify the election results in the Senate on Jan. 6, the day after the runoffs. Ms. Babbitt said she was unsure that Ms. Loeffler and Mr. Perdue were going to win, because in failing to secure the most loyal Trump supporters, ‘they are missing the MAGA vote.
‘What are they hiding?’ Ms. Babbitt asked.”
Republicans attacking Republicans. Sounds like Trump has set off a GOP civil war. All because he cannot accept the fact that the majority of Americans voted against him.
