Many Americans are not pleased with the 2020 presidential election. In many circles, talk about Biden’s “historic win” is met with skepticism and uncertainty, if not outright disbelief.

President Trump’s legal representatives continue to press forward with litigation of the ongoing election. There are several suits in place to toss out illegal ballots, de-certify states where fraud tainted votes, etc.

A fair amount of Trump supporters harbor unspeakable frustration with how this is all going. For this reason, there’s been serious talk about Georgia Trump supporters boycotting the two runoffs that will determine the fate of the United States Senate.

Thankfully, President Trump shut this down on Friday morning, confirms Breitbart News.

Trump on the Importance of the Georgia Runoffs

If Georgia Republicans do not turn out in droves for incumbent Sens. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue, then the likelihood of their Democrat opponents Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff winning the Senate seats grows exponentially.

Should Warnock and Ossoff defeat Loeffler and Perdue, then Democrats will have majority control over the Senate (and all of Congress since Democrats also control the House of Representatives).

Now, some Georgia conservatives are expressing an interest in boycotting the runoffs in order to send some sort of message to the Georgia GOP governor and secretary of state; however, as other Republicans have pointed out, handing the Senate to Democrats in order to spite Georgia election officials is akin to hacking off your nose to spite your face.

President Trump agrees and is urging Georgia Republicans against boycotting the two runoffs. After affirming the importance of Sens. Loeffler and Perdue’s victories, the president also pointed out that a GOP boycott of the runoff plays right into the hands of Democrats.

Boosting GOP Support for Loeffler and Perdue

The fate of Congress quite literally all comes down to Georgia. This is why Republican (and even third-party) support for Sens. Loeffler and Perdue is so critical.

In precisely one week, President Trump will travel to the Peach State and campaign for both GOP incumbents. Earlier this month, Vice President Pence also visited Gainesville and Canton, Georgia to support Loeffler and Perdue.
