Georgia is home to two pivotal special elections that will set the stage for the Senate’s majority control until 2022. Sen. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler are the two GOP incumbents who are up against Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock, the Democrats seeking to succeed them in Congress.
At this point, it is pretty much a given that both races are going to be extremely tight. With that in mind, early voting data has provided some insight into where the Georgia special elections stand thus far.
According to Newsmax, the current information on early voting shows that GOP turnout tomorrow is more important than ever for Republicans to keep the Senate.
Why Republicans Need to Vote on January 5
The Super PAC known as GUV PAC has released some very critical findings on early voting in the Georgia runoffs. Thus far, the PAC maintains the special elections are “not looking particularly good” for Sens. Perdue and Loeffler.
The biggest issue for both Republican senators is the lack of early voting from GOP Georgians. 35.2% of Republicans voted early in these senatorial runoffs, while 42.5% of Democrats voted early. These numbers come on top of polls that show Ossoff and Warnock slightly ahead of Perdue and Loeffler.
President @realDonaldTrump knows exactly what’s at stake in this election and how critical it is for EVERY Republican to get out and vote on Tuesday.

Some of the hypotheses for only 35.2% of early GOP votes are the holiday season, coupled with concerns about voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election.
Lin Wood, an attorney with a history of donating to Democrats and voting for Democrats, is also a factor; Wood has called for Republicans to boycott the Georgia runoffs, going against the calls of President Trump who is working to get out the vote for Perdue and Loeffler.
The One and Only Path to a GOP Victory
In order for the GOP to win the Georgia runoffs, Republican voters in Georgia have to get out and vote tomorrow in full force. The early voting numbers already show that more Democrats have cast votes than Republicans. This leaves no credible debate against the need for the GOP to go vote on Tuesday.
.@realDonaldTrump knows exactly what’s on the line on Tuesday — that’s why he came to Georgia in December and why he’s coming back tomorrow.

Getting out the vote is something Trump will be campaigning for later this evening. Tonight, the 45th president will fly into the Dalton Regional Airport to support Perdue and Loeffler. Trump, like other Republicans, will call for GOP voters in Georgia to get to the polls tomorrow and cast their votes to save the Senate and save America.
