Sarah Palin GOP Campaign And Urges Republicans To Crush Georgia Vote

By

* Sarah Palin spoke in Georgia Friday to urge Republican voters to ‘crush’ the vote

* She told supporters that ‘the eyes of America’ are on Georgia as the Republican Party only needs one more seat for a majority in the Senate

* Palin encouraged the crowd to vote for Sen David Perdue and Sen Kelly Loeffler

* Democrats need Jon Ossoff to defeat Perdue and Raphael Warnock to defeat Loeffler to force a 50-50 Senate

* That would then position VP-elect Kamala Harris as tie-breaking majority vote

Former Alaska governor and 2008 Republican Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin has rejoined the GOP campaign trail and urged supporters in Georgia to ‘crush’ the vote for Sen David Perdue and Sen Kelly Loeffler.

‘Georgia, we need you to not just show up January 5, not just to win, but to crush it,’ Palin told a crowd of supporters in Marietta, Georgia, on Friday as part of the Save America Tour.

‘We need you to crush it and to send that message, the loudest message that we can. That no, we will not implement at all socialism in America. We will not watch that erosion of our inalienable rights,’ she continued.

Palin has not held elected office for more than a decade.

Both Perdue and Loeffler face strong Democratic challengers in January 5 runoffs that will determine which party controls the Senate at the outset of Joe Biden’s presidency.

The GOP needs one more seat for a majority. Democrats need Jon Ossoff to defeat Perdue and Raphael Warnock to defeat Loeffler to force a 50-50 Senate, positioning Vice President-elect Kamala Harris as the tie-breaking majority vote.

Perdue and Loeffler have tried to placate President Donald Trump and his supporters by backing a lawsuit from Texas that sought to overturn Biden’s win but was rejected by the US Supreme Court on Friday, and by calling for Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to resign, citing unspecified ‘mismanagement’ in the election.

As the pair strained to speak at Trump’s rally in Valdosta, cries of ‘Fight for Trump’ filled the crowd, largely drowning out the senators.

Trump has relentlessly promoted false claims that the election was rigged against him and he has savaged Republican elected officials he perceives as standing in the way of his quest to subvert the results.
