Republican Sens. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue of Georgia called on the state’s GOP secretary of state to resign on Monday, citing “failures” in the election process.
“There have been too many failures in Georgia elections this year, and the most recent election has shined a national light on the problems,” Loeffler and Perdue said in a joint statement. “The Secretary of State has failed to deliver honest and transparent elections. He has failed the people of Georgia, and he should step down immediately.”
“We believe when there are failures, they need to be called out — even when it’s in your party. While blame certainly lies elsewhere as well, the buck ultimately stops with the Secretary of State. The mismanagement and lack of transparency from the Secretary of State are unacceptable,” the senators’ statement read. “Honest elections are paramount to the foundation of our democracy. The Secretary of State has failed to deliver honest and transparent elections. He has failed the people of Georgia, and he should step down immediately,” ABC noted.
The Georgia Republicans will both face runoff elections on Jan. 5. Loeffler, who beat back an intra-party challenge from Rep. Doug Collins, will go up against Rev. Raphael Warnock, while Perdue will go up against Jon Ossoff.
As expected, Democrats are coming for them, with every trick in the book and a whole lot of campaign cash. Millions of dollars were already poured into the Democrat candidates’ campaigns to challenge the Republican incumbents for Georgia’s two Senate seats.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer has already signaled Democrats’ intentions to use these challengers in Georgia to “change the world” with their leftist policies.
