President Trump’s continued effort to undermine the results of the presidential election has caused a rift among Republican lawmakers in Georgia as the party gears up for a pair of runoffs that will determine control of the Senate.
Incumbent GOP Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler will face Democrats Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock in separate races on Jan. 5. If Democrats win both, the Senate will be split 50-50 and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris will be the tie-breaking vote.
As he lashes out at election officials in several key swing states, Trump has reserved some of his most scathing attacks for Georgia’s Republican Gov. Brian Kemp and Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, who both played roles in certifying Joe Biden’s win in the state. Last week, Trump called Raffensperger an “enemy of the people.” Trump later said he was “ashamed” that he had endorsed Kemp’s 2018 gubernatorial bid.
