GOP Senate Candidates Inadvertently Boost Election Boycott with Critique of Georgia’s Process

This could backfire…BIG TIME.

A strange narrative is playing out in the Peach State as of late, as two runoff races for the US Senate have brought the national political attention to Georgia.

The majority of the Senate will hang in the balance as the pair of Senate races are set to be decided on January 5th.  Georgia’s electoral college votes went to Joe Biden in the general election, which marks the first time since the 1990’s that the state has turned blue.

This has made Georgia the focus of several criticisms from President Donald Trump, who railed against Governor Brian Kemp’s unwillingness to work toward overturning those results.  In response, a number of pro-Trump attorneys called for Georgians to boycott the runoff Senate election, attempting to punish the Georgia GOP for Kemp’s decision.

Now, the two Republican candidates who are running for the Senate are casting doubt on the abilities of the state’s election official, which could inadvertently bolster the boycott that would doom their chances of winning.

Sens. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) and David Perdue (R-GA) torched Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger’s failure to release a final list of newly registered voters ahead of early voting for the Georgia Senate runoffs as “totally unacceptable,” Breitbart News has learned exclusively. The senators said that this lack of reform may jeopardize the runoffs.

Loeffler and Perdue released their statement as Monday starts early voting for the Georgia Senate runoffs. Raffensperger has failed to compile a final list of newly registered voters.

In their statement, the Georgia conservatives charged that Raffensperger’s failure to enact this voter transparency measure might jeopardize the integrity of the January runoff elections.

Perdue and Loeffler said:

“It’s been one week since the voter registration deadline passed and the Secretary of State has failed to compile and release a final list of newly registered voters. This is totally unacceptable – the deadline for new voter registration was December 7, 2020. In-person early voting starts today, and the public remains without a full accounting of who is registered and who may attempt to cast a ballot in the runoff. This lack of transparency needs to be rectified immediately, or the integrity of our elections will remain threatened. Georgians demand transparency, accountability, and accuracy in our elections process – and the Secretary of State is failing to provide it in a timely manner. [Emphasis added]. “

Perdue and Loeffler will now need to find a way to have their cake and eat it too, it seems.
