Multiple Republicans headed to Georgia to rally in support of Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-Ga.) and Sen. David Perdue (R-Ga.) ahead of the crucial runoff elections.
Republicans from all over the country gathered to rally for the GOP in Georgia’s runoff election.
The campaign rally for Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue was held in Marietta on Friday. Event attendees traveled from all around the country to show their support for the Republican candidates in the runoff election.
The race has garnered national attention as the battle against Democrat candidates Raphael Warnock and John Ossoff will determine party control of the Senate.
Among those who spoke at the event was former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin (R-Alaska). The former vice-presidential candidate issued a call to action for Georgia that emphasized the fate of the country rests in their hands.
“I wanna speak on behalf of the rest of America,” Palin said. “Georgia, we need you to not just show up, not just win, but to crush it!”
Palin assured voters Republicans will keep America great, so long as they hold on to the Senate. She was also joined by Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) and Georgia Representative-elect Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) in their show of support for the GOP.
Greene, who will represent the state’s 14th congressional district, also called on Georgians to show up to the polls.
She went on to condemn voter fraud in the November presidential election, though she urged voters not to let the corruption dissuade them from casting their vote in January.
Georgia is FIGHTING for @realDonaldTrump!

“We have a second fight on our hands and this one is so important. No matter how upset we are, no matter how concerned we are about our elections,” Greene said. “We have to turn out strong for our senators…we have to vote for them and make sure we hold those Senate seats.”
Early voting in the runoff opens Monday, December 14.
