Cumming, Georgia-Republican Senator David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler appeared in the video together, issued a statement together, and held the event on Friday in this city outside Atlanta United rally.
After campaigning in different styles, Perdue and Loeffler entered the finals on January 5th. This is a new strategy that attempts to control the Senate in the hands of the Republican Party: working together Show yourself as a uniform vote to voters in Georgia.
The senators went well with their messages, and be careful not to conflict with President Donald Trump’s refusal to admit defeat. However, the subtext is clear: Joe Biden will be president and advance a gradual agenda-but only if Democrats Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock win the Georgia Senate This will allow them to exercise Senate control of the party.
Guys, we are now facing a battle. This will be a long process. We are firewalls. This is true not only for the Senate, but also for the future of our country. “Lofler crowded the crowd on the Black Diamond Grill, appearing with Perdue and Senator Rick Scott. “If you are the voice of January 5th, we will be in Washington becomes your voice. “
Perdue said he hopes this election will be about the basic turnout.
“What we have to do is not to convince people. All we have to do is vote.” He said.
Loeffler (Loeffler) took office in January after being appointed to fill the vacancy, but in the same round of voting, candidates from all parties faced “chaotic primary elections.” She focused mainly on defeating Republican challenger Rep. Doug Collins, and embraced Trump tightly and called herself “more conservative than Attila the Hun.”
The strategy paid off last week, and Loeffler entered the final. But now, she needs to expand her appeal beyond the 26% of voters who support her for the first time. Her Democratic opponent, Warnock, won the largest share of voters in the general election with 33% of the vote.
It may be too late for her to execute the hub. Instead, Loeffler’s winning strategy was to disqualify Warnock and put him in the mainstream. “He supports Marxist ideas. He embraces communists,” she told the masked crowd (optional indoors) here on a sunny day, causing boos.
Warnock responded on Thursday, telling reporters that Loeffler “sit down to be interviewed by a well-known white supremacist, and she was pleased to accept a candidate for trafficking in a hateful and paranoid QAnon conspiracy. stand by.”
Perdue need not worry about Republican challengers. Under the leadership of the opposition, the first incumbents quickly moved towards the opposition party and focused on the general election. They put forward a more sober tone of controlling the coronavirus and returning to normal life.
But the unified vote also created opportunities for the Democratic Party. Perdue and Loeffler are both multi-millionaires and one of the richest senators. During the pandemic, they all increased their fortunes through stock trading.
“They have been gathered together as pandemic mobs. In terms of using their position to enrich themselves, this has increased this negative coverage,” said Democratic Senator Jennifer Jordan, representing Atlanta. “These rich Uber people don’t even want to be with ordinary Georgians. They will do their best to make money.”
Jordan said that the low-profile and more controversial Loeffler would destroy the more modest information in Perdue’s campaign, thereby dragging down Perdue.
Jordan said: “When you describe yourself as the Attila of the Huns, you don’t want to be gentle.” “Their news is inconsistent. If I were a Perdue campaign, I would be extra careful. That is what people know about her. She has no records.”
But Republicans say that runoff changed the equation.
“In a sense, this is a new world, and the majority party in the Senate is brewing. Even if you had a different campaign style in the first few months, this fight will resonate with voters.” National Republican Senate Committee Communication director Jesse Hunt (Jesse Hunt) said. “Who do you want to run for the Senate?”
For some Republicans in the Atlanta area, they were shocked by the state’s blue trend and worried about the prospect of a fully democratic government. This is an attractive message.
Beth Pfannkuche, a caregiver in Loganville, Georgia, said it was a “good idea” for them to run together.
She said: “Perdue has been in office longer than her.” “I don’t know Kelly well.”
In contrast, Ossov and Warnock come from different backgrounds. They are Jewish millennials and outstanding Baptist missionaries. Everyone comes from a different group of people, and these groups are helping to promote the winners of the Democratic Party-young voters and black people. Both are operating on protecting health care and fighting the coronavirus pandemic.
The two currently do not arrange any joint activities, but Osoff said that he hopes they will participate in the campaign together during the finals.
Warnock’s campaign stated that Loeffler’s connection with Perdue is not important.
Warnock spokesperson Terrence Clark said: “It doesn’t matter who Senator Loeffler runs for.” “She is trying to record her record of attacks against existing diseases and profit from the pandemic. , And now she was found lying in the advertisement.”
