Georgian Republican Foreign Minister Brad Raffensperger has beaten Senators David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler for requesting data.
Raffensperger gave the incumbent Republican senators the task of focusing on him and building conspiracy theories over existing voter roll data.
The Secretary of State said in a statement: “Although I told the Republican Party to stop focusing on me and instead focus their energies on winning the Senate runoff, they clearly weren’t listening,” Secretary Raffensperger said . “As embarrassing as it is for Sens. Perdue and Loeffler not to know that the required data is already publicly available from the Foreign Minister, it is even worse that they do not know that their own campaigns already contain the data they are looking for to the. The early voting has already started, but it is not too late to call their offices and get their campaigns in order. “
Loeffler and Perdue’s campaigns know they have the data, but play on the narrative that Donald Trump discovered that the Georgian elections were rigged. Incumbent Republicans are trying to win the runoff election by increasing the Republican turnout for fear that a gigantic conspiracy is working against them in Georgia.
The concept of winning an election by claiming it was rigged didn’t work for Donald Trump, who months before election day claimed the election was rigged against him. It is not surprising that Republicans are sticking to a losing strategy because the GOP is no longer a political party.
It is an authoritarian movement whose existence focuses on appeasing and serving Donald Trump.
