Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez on Saturday claimed the Democrats successfully flipped Georgia blue because Georgians voted for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. He made the comments in a fundraising email to supporters, asking them to donate money to the DNC as a way of helping to ensure the two Senate seats in the Peach State go blue. 

This year has been long, and I know I’ve asked a lot of this grassroots team. But every single time, you have stepped up and demonstrated your commitment to the Democratic Party and to preserving our democracy. Thank you, Elizabeth.

But as you know, our work isn’t finished yet. In just 10 days, the fate of the Senate will be decided by both runoff races in Georgia which is why, if it makes sense for your budget, I'm asking you to donate your final $7 of the year to the Flip Georgia Fund. If you contribute today, we won't ask you for your support again until the new year.

If we want to win both runoff races and flip the Senate, we can't afford to fall short of our final fundraising goal of the year. This year you helped flip Georgia from red to blue, take back the White House, and send Trump packing. And with your support, I know we can win again in Georgia and regain control of the Senate -- to create a government and a country that works for all of us.

Perez is already taking a victory lap for flipping Georgia from Republicans to Democrats. The problem, however, is President Trump is contesting the election results and the two Senate seats are still up-for-grabs. Georgians decide who will represent them in the Senate on Jan. 5.

Will you rush one final $7 donation to the DNC’s Flip Georgia Fund to support our candidates in key battleground states like Georgia? Your investment couldn’t come at a more critical time in our fight to flip the Senate -- and if you contribute today, we won't ask again until the final days before the runoff in the new year.

I’m humbled by the unrelenting dedication I’ve seen from Democrats like you. When this grassroots team comes together, Democrats win. And in these final 10 days, we must continue to do everything in our power to engage and mobilize voters and win again in Georgia.

Anything you can give right now will make a serious difference in our fight to flip the Senate and win seats for years to come. This is the last ask I’ll make of you this year if you’re able to donate to this email today.

Please, rush a $7 contribution to the DNC’s Flip Georgia Fund right now. Your support at this stage in the race is critical in our fight to take back the Senate.

Let’s win in Georgia -- again.

In unity,

Tom

Democratic National Committee

P.S. These final 10 days are critical in our fight to take back the Senate. The runoff races in Georgia will be decided by the work we’re able to do to reach and mobilize voters before January 5. We urgently need your help. Please, if you’re able, rush $7 to the DNC’s Flip Georgia Fund today.

Since Election Day, the DNC has continually sent emails from Senate candidates Rev. Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff, asking donors to split their donation between the DNC and the Senate campaigns. And they come off as desperate.
