In a statement criticizing Joe Biden for campaigning for Democrats in the Georgia Senate runoff election, the Trump campaign accidentally admitted defeat.
Trump campaign manager Bill Stepien said (in bold), "Joe Biden's trip to Georgia next week proves that the Democrats are serious about the Senate runoff, and so are the Republicans." The control of the US Senate is at stake and it is imperative that Senators David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler return to Washington to hold the line against radical, left-wing attempts to raise taxes, impose the job-damaging Green New Deal, improve law enforcement, and 11 million illegal aliens Grant amnesty. Perdue and Loeffler have been strong allies for President Trump, while their opponents represent everything that liberal activists have been shouting about for the past four years. Jon Ossoff is a leftist opportunist who has spent his entire life shopping for political office. Raphael Warnock is an unrepentant Marxist who is the most radical candidate for nationwide office in Georgian history. As President Trump continues his legal battle against the elections, keeping control of the Senate remains of paramount importance for Republicans. Every Georgian should either vote early for Perdue and Loeffler or drop out on January 5th. "
Control of the US Senate is only at stake if Kamala Harris is the vice president.
If the Trump campaign really believed they won, they wouldn't be talking about Senate control, but if Mike Pence were still Vice President, Republicans would control the Senate regardless of the Georgia result.
It can't be both. Trump still can't be president and Senate control is in question.
The statement from the Trump campaign is an accidental admission of defeat.
The Trump election challenge is a scam.
Even the Trump campaign knows they have lost, which is why the fake election challenge hurts Republican hopes in Georgia.
