Trump: Georgia 'RINOS' Will Cost Republicans the Senate
President calls out state’s governor and lieutenant governor
President Donald Trump has warned that Georgia “RINOS” could cause losses by the state’s two Republican incumbent senators as they face runoff elections in January next year.
In a tweet Monday, Trump said referring to the state’s governor and lieutenant governor by their Twitter handles:
“RINOS @BrianKempGA @GeoffDuncanGA, & Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, will be solely responsible for the potential loss of our two GREAT Senators from Georgia."
RINOS @BrianKempGA, @GeoffDuncanGA, & Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, will be solely responsible for the potential loss of our two GREAT Senators from Georgia, @sendavidperdue & @KLoeffler. Won’t call a Special Session or check for Signature Verification! People are ANGRY!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 8, 2020
Trump's tweet also tagged Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler and urged the state’s officials need to do more to help efforts to reverse the certified victory in Georgia by former Vice President Joe Biden.
“Won’t call a Special Session or check for Signature Verification! People are ANGRY!” he said of the “RINOS.”
Both Kemp and Raffensperger signed paperwork that certified the Georgia election for Joe Biden last month.
Trump, however, vowed to continue litigating the election all the way to the Supreme Court.
“If we have courage and wisdom, I think we know what the answer is going to be because you can’t let people get away with what they got away with,” he said.
Republicans hold a 50-48 edge in the Senate.
But if Democrats Jon Ossoff and the Rev. Raphael Warnock win, their party will gain control of the Senate because presumed Vice President-elect Kamala D. Harris would cast the casting vote in the case of ties.
Earlier this month, Trump told a cheering crowd in Georgia he "won the election" while campaigning for the Senate runoff election on behalf of Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler.
“You know we won, Georgia, just so you understand,” Trump said.
“We love you!”
We’re winning this election,” he continued.
“We’re fighting very hard for this state.”

In a statement released by the Trump campaign last week, lawyers say they have uncovered evidence that there were "literally tens of thousands of illegal votes that were cast, counted, and included" in the 2020 General Election.
