VP Pence’s Georgia Plans Could Have A Huge Impact On The Senate

More News For You

Vice President Mike Pence has plans to head to Georgia to campaign alongside Senators David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler, the two Republican incumbents in the southern state’s twin Senate runoff elections, which will determine whether the GOP will maintain its majority in the chamber.

Perdue and Loeffler will tour with the vice president on a bus making stops in the northern Georgia cities of Canton and Gainsville.

A Republican insider with knowledge of the vice president’s plans told news outlets that Pence may return to Georgia ahead of the runoff.

While the vice president is the most notable of several high profile Republicans hitting the Georgia runoff trail, it’s unknown whether his boss has plans to head south to help keep the GOP majority in the Senate.

President Trump posted a tweet Thursday morning noting his part in helping Republicans make huge strides in the House of Representatives in his month’s election.

“It was my great honor to help, a tremendous achievement!” wrote the president adding a retweet of his presidential campaign’s post highlighting that Republicans won all 27 House races described as toss-ups by political handicappers.

Besides this recent update, the president has remained relatively quiet about the Georgia runoffs. One of the president’s close advisors said there had been very little talk on whether Trump would make an appearance in Georgia to show support for Perdue and Loeffler before the elections on January 5.
