Vice President Mike Pence made his first runoff campaign stop with Republican senators David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler on Friday, urging voters to “keep Georgia and save America.”
“Let’s show the world what Georgia is all about—that the agenda of Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi is not the agenda of the people of Georgia,” Pence said in Canton.
Republicans are counting on the vice president’s visit to spur turnout in the state’s impending Senate runoff elections, which will determine partisan control of the upper chamber. Pence’s speech mirrored Perdue and Loeffler’s messaging—the Republicans pitched themselves as the “last line of defense” that will ensure congressional Democrats cannot pass progressive legislation like the Green New Deal. . .
Pence is the latest high-profile GOP official to join Perdue and Loeffler on the campaign trail, with former U.N. ambassador Nikki Haley and Sens. Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Tom Cotton (Ark.) all visiting the Peach State in recent days. The vice president praised Perdue and Loeffler for their “strong support” for the Trump administration.
