Trump Issues Stark Warning to Voters in Tennessee, Georgia About Dem Candidates

President Trump warned voters in Tennessee and Georgia on Sunday about what would happen to their respective states should the “radical Democrats” win on Tuesday.

In Georgia, Trump said Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams would not only turn the state “into Venezuela” and “make your jobs disappear like magic” if Republican Brian Kemp doesn’t win, but “your Second Amendment [would also be] gone” under Abrams.

“Brian Kemp is an incredible fighter and a tireless champion for the people and for the values of Georgia, and he was with me right from the beginning," he said.  

“You put Stacey in there, and you're gonna have Georgia turn into Venezuela. I don't think the people of Georgia like that."

After campaigning in Macon, Georgia for Kemp, Trump headed to Chattanooga, Tennessee to stump for GOP Senate candidate Marsha Blackburn.

Trump started off his rally discussing the economy, and asked the crowd if they wanted “the resistance” to take away its gains.

“We have the hottest economy on earth,” he said, talking about the jobs numbers. “There is an electricity in the air. … We are breaking every record in the history of our country.”

"If you want to stop the liberal agenda of high taxes and high crime, you need to vote for Marsha," he told the crowd, blasting her liberal opponent Phil Bredesen as a "far left liberal" who "will always do" what Democratic leadership wants him to do. 

In Georgia, the governor's race is neck-and-neck, with Kemp up 2.7 points in RealClearPolitics's average of polls. In Tennessee, Blackburn holds a 5.2-point lead in the average of polls, according to RCP, which has rated the race "leans GOP."
