Vice President Mike Pence returned to the Peach State to campaign for the state’s Republican Senators Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue. On Thursday, he traveled to Augusta to met with supporters at a ‘Defend the Majority’ rally.
The Vice President began his remarks by highlighting the Trump campaign’s recent victories in the fight for election integrity. He praised Texas for launching a lawsuit challenging the presidential election in four key swing states.
“Just in the last few days, 18 states have joined the Lone Star state to defend the integrity of our elections before the highest court in the land,” Pence stated. “President Donald Trump deserves his day in court, the Supreme Court.”

The Vice President then expressed his support for Sen. Perdue, sharing why Georgia needs to send him back on Capitol Hill.
“We need to send him back because a Republican majority could be the last line of defense to preserve all we’ve done to defend this nation, revive our economy and preserve the God given liberties we hold dear,” he stated.
Pence then criticized the senator’s Democrat opponents in the January runoff’s and warned their values are threat to the American agenda.
“Our agenda is American greatness, their agenda is American decline,”he noted. “John Ossoff and Raphael Warnock advance a socialist agenda of higher taxes, open borders, government takeover of health care, a Green New Deal, defunding the police, packing the courts.”
As the battle for control of the Senate heats up, Pence urged Georgian’s to get out and vote in the upcoming races. The competitive race between Republicans and Democrats will determine which party controls the US. Senate, with Democrats needing to flip both seats in order to take control.
In-person early voting for the runoff elections begins on December 14 with polls closing on January 5.
