Control of the U.S. Senate comes down to Georgia, where Republican senators David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler are trying to fight off challenges from Democrats Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock in Tuesday’s runoff elections.
On the eve of a tightly anticipated runoff election, Georgia Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler cast their weight behind President Donald Trump in his effort to prove voter fraud.
Embattled Sen. David Perdue had nothing but praise Monday following President Donald Trump’s call demanding Georgia’s top elections official help him overturn the election results.
“A lot of people in Georgia and 75 million Americans, I think, align with him right now that something untoward happened here in Georgia and we have not gotten to the bottom of it,” Perdue told Fox News. “I’ve been calling for weeks to object to the electors, because in the state of Georgia I don’t believe we should have certified the election yet.”
Perdue and fellow Republican Sen. Kelly Loeffler are each facing a tight runoff race Tuesday for their seats and GOP control of the Senate.
The race is too close to call, but some rumors from Georgia again throw the election integrity under question.
John Fredericks, a conservative radio talk show host in Virginia talked with Steve Bannon and said that Dominion machines in 3 of the largest Republican precincts are down. Voters are allegedly told they can’t scan their ballots because the machines don’t work!

President Trump tweeted about this problem a few moments ago:
Reports are coming out of the 12th Congressional District of Georgia that Dominion Machines are not working in certain Republican Strongholds for over an hour. Ballots are being left in lock boxes, hopefully they count them. Thank you Congressman @RickAllen!
