The Georgia senatorial runoff elections have engendered national attention. Americans on both sides of the political aisle are eager for their desired candidates to win the runoffs.
Last week, Vice President Pence and President Trump flew down to Georgia to campaign for Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler, the two Republicans seeking re-election. Pence rallied in Savannah on Friday, while Trump stumped in Valdosta on Saturday.
Both leaders made very clear the critical nature of these runoffs and the need for Georgians to vote for Perdue and Loeffler. Calls for Georgians to vote come amid talk of Republicans sitting out these races to protest voter fraud; both Pence and Trump made clear that the best way to fight voter fraud is to vote for Perdue and Loeffler in droves.

With less than one month until the runoff election date of January 5, there is much more to come. According to Newsmax, Loeffler will be debating against Democrat challenger Raphael Warnock for the first time on Sunday.

What to Expect from the Loeffler vs. Warnock Debate

The Atlanta Press Club will sponsor the very first debate between Loeffler and Warnock. Thus far, additional debates have yet to be scheduled; however, Warnock wants more than one debate against Loeffler and the Georgia senator has maintained that she’ll debate her Democrat opponent as many times as he likes to expose his extremism.
Throughout the runoffs, Loeffler and Warnock have upped their attacks against each other in various ads. The Georgia GOP senator continues to hold her opponent’s feet to the fire for his radical talking points.

Just a few examples of Warnock’s rhetoric include the following: claiming that America should “open up” its jails, stating that no one can simultaneously serve God and in the military, and declaring that the opioid crisis is only an issue because it predominantly impacts individuals who are “suburban” and “white.”
Warnock has attempted to soften up his image by posing with puppies and accusing Loeffler of taking his remarks out of context.

Will Perdue and Ossoff Debate Again?

Unlike Loeffler and Warnock, Sen. Perdue and Democrat rival Jon Ossoff have already debated one another twice. Following the second debate, Perdue’s campaign issued a statement, informing that he wouldn’t be debating Ossoff any more. The reason for this decision cited Ossoff’s repeated lies about his policies.

During both Perdue vs. Ossoff debates, the GOP senator repeatedly held the Georgia Democrat accountable for lies and misrepresentations. One example deals with the CARES Act and PPP. While Ossoff falsely maintains that Perdue worked to stop pandemic relief to Georgians, it is actually Ossoff who opposed PPP and the CARES Act, even while his own father benefited from the latter.
