Days before the crucial Georgia Senate runoff elections, Donald Trump is already dismissing them as “illegal and invalid” as he tries to gin up his base to go out and vote for the two Republicans on the ticket.
In a series of tweets on Friday evening, Trump repeated his claim of “massive corruption which took place in the 2020 Election, which gives us far more votes than is necessary to win all of the Swing States.”
He also referred to a consent decree reached by both Democrats and Republicans in the state in March–that gave voters an opportunity to fix ballots that contained an alleged mismatch between their signature as it appears on their ballot and the signature election officials have on file— as “unconstitutional” and because of this, the two Senate races and his loss to President-elect Biden in the state is illegal and invalid.
Trump is schedule to hold a rally in Dalton, Ga., on Monday, one day before the election for incumbent Sens. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue.
President-elect Joe Biden will also be in the state on election eve to campaign for Democrats Rev. Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff.
The race will determine the future of the Senate and the the fate if Biden’s legislative agenda. Republicans need to win just one seat to regain a majority whole democrats need two.
