.@Mike_Pence knows exactly what’s at stake in Georgia — and he’s ALL-IN for @Perduesenate and me.— Kelly Loeffler (@KLoeffler) November 30, 2020
I couldn’t be prouder to have his STRONG support, and I’m excited to welcome Vice President Pence back to Savannah on Friday! #gapol #gasen https://t.co/2Ls8F8dUhq
Vice President Pence stumped for Sens. Perdue and Loeffler earlier in November, and laid out all that is at stake in the pair of runoff elections:
"For all we’ve done together, for all we have yet to do, we need the great state of Georgia to defend the majority, and the road to a Senate Republican majority goes straight through the state of Georgia. The Republican Senate majority could be the last line of defense for all that we’ve done to defend this nation, revive our economy, and preserve the God-given liberties that we hold dear."
Republicans are overwhelmingly united behind Sens. Perdue and Loeffler, as they hope to keep the Senate majority out of the hands of Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer.
