Will Trump’s ‘Rigged Election’ Claims Hurt The GOP’s Chances In Georgia’s Senate Runoffs?

Republican strategists are signaling that the Georgia runoffs featuring Republican Senators Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue are even more important than the 2020 general election, especially with some in President Donald Trump’s camp — and often times the president himself — claiming the state’s election process is corrupt.

The Daily Caller spoke to a number of Republican strategists and those familiar with Georgia elections, and while they didn’t definitively say Trump and his supporters’ claims were hurting, they certainly indicated they weren’t helping the GOP maintain its majority in the Senate.

Ford O’Connell, who worked on the 2008 Senate runoff in Georgia, told Daily Caller that Georgia voters should be concerned about “irregularities” in the 2020 general election but still urged them to vote for Loeffler and Perdue to maintain the GOP’s slim Senate majority.

“Trump supporters are right to be livid, there are voter irregularities in plain sight, which the Democrats and many in the mainstream media choose to flat-out ignore,” he explained. “But sitting out the most important non-presidential election in the last 50 years will give the Democrats complete control of the federal government and the keys to destroy not only ‘The Make America Great Again’ agenda but also the strong legacy of President Trump, rendering the last four years useless.”
