Watch: Jon Ossoff, Raphael Warnock Victories Would Give Far-Left ‘Unchecked Power’ to Grant Amnesty, Defund the Police

ATLANTA — The National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) unveiled two ads on Wednesday, charging if Georgia Senate Democrats Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff were to win their Georgia Senate runoff elections, it would grant the far-left “unchecked power” to defund America’s law enforcement, grant amnesty to illegal aliens, and take over Americans’ health care.

“If you vote for Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock, who are you really putting in power,” the narrator in the NRSC ad asked rhetorically. “Nancy Pelosi, AOC, and Bernie Sanders. The far left, with complete, unchecked power, to defund the police, give amnesty to illegals, let government take over your health care, and push massive tax hikes.”

“Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock will stand with them, not Georgia,” the narrator added.

Ossoff and Warnock’s bid to unseat Sens. David Perdue (R-GA) and Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) would grant Democrats significantly more control in Congress. If both conservatives were to lose their respective Senate runoffs in January, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), the likely vice president, would become the tie-breaking vote in Congress’ upper chamber.

This would give Democrats complete control of Congress.

The other NRSC ad exposes Ossoff and Warnock’s “radically dangerous” beliefs.

The narrator in the ad said Warnock supports cashless bail, which would put the “most violent back into our neighborhoods.”

The NRSC said Ossoff praised Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-NY) Green New Deal, which the narrator claimed would kill Georgia jobs and “astronomically raise Georgia taxes.”

“Our country as we know it is on the line in Georgia,” NRSC spokesperson Paige Lindgren said in a statement on Wednesday. “Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff support the most radical party leaders and agenda in American history. Georgians know what’s at stake in this election, and they will reject radically dangerous Warnock and Ossoff.”

NRSC Raises ‘Unprecedented’ $75 Million for Pivotal Georgia Senate Elections

ATLANTA — National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) Chairman Todd Young (R-IN) announced on Tuesday that the organization raised an “unprecedented” $75 million in fundraising ahead of the pivotal Georgia Senate runoffs.

Young announced the NRSC’s significant fundraising haul during the Senate GOP’s weekly luncheon, which was conducted via conference call.

The NRSC chairman noted that much of the fundraising haul, which was raised from October 15 to November 23, will be focused on reelecting Sens. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) and David Perdue (R-GA).

Perdue and Loeffler hope to stave off challenges from Democrats Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock in January.

Young said during the call, “We are working hand in glove with the Perdue and Loeffler teams to make sure we are successful, and if we win these races, we save the country.”

Reelecting Perdue and Loeffler would ensure that that the Senate majority does not fall into Democrat hands. If both Georgia conservatives were to lose in January, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), the likely vice president, would become the tie-breaking vote in the Senate.

This has raised the stakes for the Georgia Senate elections.

Subsequently, Republicans, Democrats, and outside PACs have already spent roughly $300 million in ads.

Club for Growth Action announced on Monday that they would invest $520,000 in a campaign that will feature two ads to encourage Republicans to participate in the Georgia election. The ads emphasized a GOP victory would alter the next administration’s agenda.

“This isn’t over. Maybe you’re tired. Maybe you’re fed up. But this isn’t a game. This is our future. We can save the Senate if we all show up. Voter participation is public record,” the narrator said in one ad. “Anyone can find out if you vote — or if you don’t care. Your friends, family, neighbors will know if you’re on the field or on the bench. So no excuses.”

“Your vote will determine who really sets the agenda in the next administration,” the narrator said in the second Club for Growth ad.

Stacey Abrams Voter Registration Group Denies Impropriety as Georgia Election Officials Investigate

As Georgians are turning out in record numbers to have their voices heard at the polls, the Secretary of State is resorting to desperate attempts to smear law-abiding organizations and scare eligible Georgians from registering to vote in critical upcoming elections. We will not be deterred.

This attack on our organization comes at a time when people across the country have witnessed the strength of our program and the collective power of a new Georgia electorate that embraces a system of inclusivity and opportunity for all Georgians. The timing is not accidental.

The organization also stated that it will “continue its mission to register eligible voters in advance of the December 7th deadline” in its efforts to make sure that Georgia residents “have their voices heard at the polls and freely and fairly cast their ballots for those who would represent them.”

Raffensperger announced earlier Monday that his office will launch an investigation into voting groups accused of encouraging non-Georgia residents to register to vote in the runoff elections, which are set to take place on January 5.

“We have opened an investigation into a group called America Votes, who is sending absentee ballot applications to people at addresses where they have not lived since 1994,” Raffensperger said during a press conference, adding:

Voting in Georgia when you are not a resident of Georgia is a felony, and encouraging college kids to commit felonies with no regard for what [it] might mean for them is despicable. These third-party groups have a responsibility to not encourage illegal voting. If they do so, they will be held responsible.

Other organizations set to face scrutiny from the investigation include America Votes, Operation New Voter Registration Georgia, and Vote Forward.

Last week, Abrams announced that 900,000 Georgians had requested a mail-in ballot for the runoff elections between Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) and her Democrat challenger Raphael Warnock, and another between Sen. David Perdue (R-GA) and his Democrat opponent Jon Ossoff.

Interestingly, the Washington Free Beacon reported that Warnock served as the CEO of The New Georgia Project until February of this year.

“Warnock was listed as CEO of the New Georgia Project from 2017 until Feb. 21, 2020, according to the group’s corporate filings,” the report stated. “He has been identified as the New Georgia Project’s chairman and spokesman in media reports and has said he organized voter mobilization drives for the group, including a push to register 80,000 new minority voters in 2014.”

Exclusive – Sen. Marsha Blackburn: ‘Vital’ that Georgians Reelect Loeffler, Perdue to Protect Senate ‘Firewall’ Against Left

Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) told Breitbart News exclusively that the upcoming U.S. Senate runoffs in Georgia on January 5 represent a “classic battle between freedom and socialism.”

Sens. David Perdue (R-GA) and Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) will face off against Democrats Jon Ossoff and Rev. Raphael Warnock respectively for both of Georgia’s U.S. Senate seats and potentially control of the majority in the U.S. Senate at stake. Republicans will definitely have at least 50 seats in the Senate next year, and Democrats will definitely have at least 48. If the Democrats were to take both of these seats, then the Senate would be tied at 50-50 and whoever the vice president of the United States is next year would cut the tie and determine the majority control in the Senate.

Since Democrat presidential candidate former Vice President Joe Biden currently leads in enough states to win the electoral college, that would probably be now-Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA)—his running mate—should challenges from President Donald Trump fail. If Trump were to succeed in his election challenges, then Vice President Mike Pence would cut ties in the Senate. But as it stands now, barring a miraculous legal challenge comeback by Trump, in a 50-50 Senate it would be Harris cutting ties and steering control of the upper chamber of Congress to the Democrat Party.

Blackburn argued in an appearance on Breitbart News Saturday on SiriusXM 125 the Patriot Channel that the Democrats would use victories in these Georgia Senate races if they got them to implement a radical leftist and socialist agenda.

“What you have is a classic battle between freedom and socialism,” Blackburn said. “Chuck Schumer has said, in his glee on Election Day, he said first we go ‘take’ Georgia—not we go earn the vote, not we work in Georgia to win, but ‘take.’ They are planning, the left is planning to ‘take’ Georgia. Then Schumer said they will ‘change’ America. The ‘change’ they are planning for America is adding justices to the Supreme Court, changing the Supreme Court, giving statehood to D.C. Now, D.C. is not as big as Atlanta, but D.C. is going to be a state if the Democrats get their way. Statehood for Puerto Rico, and making sure they take health insurance away from 153 million Americans and 57 million Medicare enrollees and putting everyone into a Medicaid-style program that is run by the government. They want to implement the Green New Deal, and they want to give felons the right to vote—and that is the plan just for their first 100 days. This is what they are going to do if they are given the opportunity. Bear in mind what they plan to do is use Georgia and then force their will not only on Georgians but also on the American people.”

Blackburn urged all Republicans and Trump supporters to get out and vote for Perdue and Loeffler, saying it is “vital” for them to do so since the “left is organized” in a systemic way to try to manufacture wins for Ossoff and Perdue.

“It is absolutely vital,” Blackburn said when asked how critical it is for Trump supporters to back Loeffler and Perdue. “The left is organized because they cannot get by with implementing all the stuff they’re wanting to foist upon Americans unless they win Georgia. The Senate has been the firewall. They’re the ones that have blocked a lot of stuff. It is so important that we make certain that we carry these races in Georgia. I guarantee you I am going to be out there working every single day—night and day—to make certain that we win these races. You just think about the people who would be heading these various committees. Do you really want Bernie Sanders chairing the Senate Budget Committee? Do you really want somebody like Elizabeth Warren leading the Senate Armed Services Committee? Do you really want someone like Dick Durbin as chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee? Most Georgians would say no I’m not comfortable with that because these are individuals who are too far left for me. So the only thing that stands between that happening and not is for the people of Georgia to go elect Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue.”

Pence is headed back to Georgia on Friday, and Trump is heading there on Saturday, to campaign with Loeffler and Perdue. Several other top GOP stars have already been to the state and more are planning trips there over the next month.

Democrat Jon Ossoff Signals Support for Georgia Lockdown: ‘It’s Time to Trust the Experts’

Georgia Democrat Senate candidate Jon Ossoff said on CNN’s State of the Union on Sunday that he would support a statewide lockdown of businesses to address coronavirus spread if public health experts indicate a need for “stronger mitigation measures,” remarking that “it’s time to trust the experts.”

Ossoff, who is challenging Republican Sen. David Perdue in Georgia’s race for U.S. Senate, told CNN host Dana Bash, “The problem we’ve had all year is that politicians have been suppressing and ignoring public health advice. It’s time to trust the experts, listen to public health professionals in a public health crisis.”

Bash said the White House Coronavirus Task Force has already indicated that “this is the moment to dramatically increase mitigation” due to a resurgence of the virus. Bash asked Ossoff, “So would you support harsher restrictions in Georgia, like closing restaurants and businesses temporarily?”

The Georgia Democrat responded, “I think we should follow the expertise of public health experts like those of the CDC, which is based here in Georgia, and if that is the consensus of the public health community, we need to take that advice very seriously.”

Bash further pressed, “So if they said, ‘Shut things down temporarily,’ you’d be all for it?” to which Ossoff replied, “If the CDC and its leadership gave us strong indication that those kinds of stronger mitigation measures are necessary to save lives and contain the spread of the virus, it would be malpractice for politicians to ignore that advice.”

The Worldometer reports that Georgia currently has 162,886 active cases of the novel coronavirus, or 1.5 percent, of the state’s population of 10,617,423. At its peak, Georgia saw 6,209 new daily cases reported on November 21. Since then, new daily cases have substantially dropped, with the latest data showing 1,953 new daily cases reported on November 29.

Ossoff said the spread of the virus “is out of control” and claimed people, including incumbent Perdue, have disregarded advice of public health experts. “The problem is we’ve ignored the public health experts, so I’ll be listening to them and not to political consultants, pollsters, or folks looking out for their own financial interests, like my opponent.”

Perdue has advocated for a phased reopening of businesses and described the lockdown measures Ossoff supports as “overarching” following Ossoff’s CNN interview:

In the same interview, Bash also asked Ossoff about his recent endorsement from Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), a self-proclaimed democratic socialist, and whether Ossoff wants Sanders to campaign with him in the weeks leading up to the January 5 Senate runoff election. Ossoff said that while he has not had that conversation with Sanders, he welcomes Sanders’ support.

Georgia GOP spokeswoman Abigail Sigler expressed concern after Ossoff’s television appearance that the Georgia Democrat’s support for lockdowns aligns with the socialist ideology’s tendency for government dependency.

“On January 5th, Georgians have a clear choice between socialism and freedom,” Sigler said. “Jon Ossoff supports a national lockdown and seeks to keep the entire country shut inside until we are completely dependent on the federal government for everything. … We must reject Jon Ossoff and the radical Democrats’ socialist agenda.”

Newt Gingrich: America’s Future Depends on Outcome of Georgia’s Senate Races

America’s future depends on the outcomes of the elections for the U.S. Senate in Georgia, said former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich (R-GA) on Monday, offering his remarks on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily with host Alex Marlow.

Marlow asked about demoralization among conservatives and Republicans in Georgia rooted in mistrust of the electoral and political systems.

“A lot of people in the audience are discouraged,” Marlow stated. “I don’t think it’s the majority, by any means, but there’s certainly a number of people who’ve been pretty vocal that they’re discouraged. They think the election process — if it’s not going to be legitimate — then there’s no point in voting and they don’t want to vote. They’re going protest in Georgia by not voting. I would like to hope it’s a small number of people, but a small number of people could swing the whole election. Do you have a message for those people?”

Gingrich urged Georgians to vote and volunteer as poll watchers.

LISTEN:

Gingrich continued with this advice, “My message is very simple. The future of the United States depends on the outcome of the Georgia Senate races. If you don’t want a radical left-wing America dominated by left-wing judges with massive tax increases, with a policy, frankly, of appeasing China, and you don’t want that kind of future, you have to go out and vote. And then frankly, you have to volunteer as a poll watcher and make sure they don’t steal the election. But I think these things are vital and I don’t think we should in any way underestimate how really important the Georgia Senate race.”

The 2020 election “may be the biggest Presidential theft since Adams and Clay robbed Andrew Jackson in 1824,” wrote Gingrich on Friday via Twitter.

Gingrich contrasted 1824’s presidential election with 2020’s.

“In 1824, Andrew Jackson had At 40 percent of the popular vote, but the guys who came in number two and three combined in the House of Representatives of John Quincy Adams and Henry Clay decided that even though Jackson got the most votes, he wouldn’t be president,” Gingrich explained. “So Jackson spent the next four years attacking them for representing a corrupt establishment and decisively beat Adams in 1828, and really the caused a dramatic uprising against the old order because people were just sick of it.”

Gingrich warned Democrats focus on election mechanics while Republicans focus on political campaigning. He highlighted get-out-the-vote efforts funded by Mark Zuckerberg and other left-wing billionaires and Democrat-driven election law changes as examples of Democrats’ focus on electioneering.

“You have to think of two parallel projects,” determined Gingrich. “There is the campaign, which is what the Republicans focus on, and there is the election, which is what the Democrats focus on. If we don’t find a way to have an honest election, the campaign won’t matter, because we will be drowned in ballots that are illegally gathered [through] harvested ballots.”

Gingrich concluded, “These two Senate seats are the margin between containing Biden and empowering Biden.”

Black Lives Matter PAC to Raise $500K to Boost Democrats Raphael Warnock, Jon Ossoff

Black Lives Matter PAC hopes to raise half a million dollars to boost Georgia Senate Democrat candidates Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock, according to a report released on Thursday.

The Black Lives Matter PAC wrote in an email to supporters:

We know how important this election is going to be in determining what decisions will be made in the Senate for the next few years — decisions that will impact us directly, like access to quality and affordable health care, reforming the criminal justice system, all the way to major electoral reform like passing the BREATHE Act.

The Georgia Senate runoffs in January will determine whether Democrats will gain control of the Senate majority. If Sens. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) and David Perdue (R-GA) lose to Warnock and Ossoff, then Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) would become the tiebreaking vote in the Senate should she be formally elected vice president.

Black Lives Matter supporters hope to pass the BREATHE Act, which would shut down and defund several federal agencies and close prisons as well as immigration detention centers.

The report follows as President Donald Trump announced on Thursday that he would campaign in Georgia to help Loeffler and Perdue win in January.

Georgia GOP spokeswoman Abigail Sigler said in a statement Friday that Warnock and Ossoff would continue to enable defunding the police and other extreme leftist measures, while Loeffler and Perdue would defend Georgia law enforcement.

Sigler said:

Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock have already endorsed defunding the police and continue to accept support from far-left activists who will throw our country into chaos. Senators David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler have made it clear they will stand with law enforcement and ensure they have the resources they need to keep our communities safe.

She added, “Georgians deserve to know if Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock support BLM PAC’s extreme agenda, including the radical BREATHE Act.”

Hollywood Storms Georgia: Stacey Abrams Teaming with John Legend, Common for $25,000 Per Ticket ‘Rock the Runoff Virtual Concert’

With the Senate majority leadership but two seats away, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) has declared, “Now we take Georgia, and then we change America.” Now failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams is leading an effort to win both seats, teaming with a group of Hollywood entertainers, including NBC’s The Voice star and singer John Legend and actor-rapper Common for a “Rock the Runoff” get out the vote concert.

Stacey Abrams, who lost her 2018 election by more than 50,000 votes and refused to concede, will be joined by Legend and Common, and others for a December 3 concert to raise money for the two Democrat candidates for U.S. Senate that face a runoff election on January 5.

Two Democrats are vying to win seats in the U.S. Senate, and if they do, the balance of power in the upper chamber will switch from GOP control to the Democrats. Democrat Raphael Warnock faces incumbent Republican Kelly Loeffler, while Democrat Jon Ossoff is challenging siting Republican Senator David Perdue.

The streaming event is sponsored by the Fair Fight PAC, a money-raising political action committee that Abrams started after losing her bid to become governor of Georgia. Abrams claims to have started her PAC to “mitigate voter suppression.”

Tickets for the online concert range from a “grassroots” cost of $5 to a “host” level of $25,000. Tickets are ostensibly open for purchase only to U.S. citizens in compliance with U.S. election laws. Also performing in the virtual concert is Earthgang, Ben Gibbard of Death Cab For Cutie, and the Indigo Girls. Others may be announced later.

Abrams and her retinue of entertainers are far from Hollywood’s only denizens trying to cajole Georgia voters into electing the Ossoff and Warnock. Hollywood elites including Mandy Moore, Alyssa Milano, John Cusack, Jon Cryer, Kerry Washington, and others have begun raising money and advocating for the leftist Senate candidates in Georgia.

Some celebs, such as Debra Messing, even joined phone banking efforts to get these two Democrats elected.

‘Deceitful Campaign Tactics to Manipulate Voters’: Democrats Aim to Create, Exploit Divisions Among GOP in Georgia Runoffs

Democrats from outside Georgia are actively engaged in an effort to create divisions among Republicans in the state.

The Democrats then intend to exploit those divisions to try to drive down turnout among President Donald Trump’s supporters in the runoff for the two U.S. Senate seats that will decide which party controls the upper chamber of Congress next year. Republicans, meanwhile, are pushing back on these efforts, calling them “deceitful campaign tactics” designed to “manipulate voters” in Georgia.

Really American PAC, a leftwing Super PAC that ran scores of attack ads against President Trump in the general election in 2020, is now crowdfunding on social media to fund billboards in Trump-supporter-heavy areas of Georgia to split Trump supporters from Sens. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) and David Perdue (R-GA). Both GOP senators are headed to Jan. 5 runoffs in the state that will determine which party controls the U.S. Senate next year. As of now, next year Republicans will have 50 seats in the U.S. Senate and Democrats will have 48. These two seats will determine which party controls the Senate, and if the Democrats take both of them—and Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden is successful in challenges from President Donald Trump to election results that currently have Biden leading Trump—then the Democrats would gain control of the chamber as the would-be Vice President Kamala Harris, now a Democrat senator from California, would be the tie-breaking vote.

As Trump is challenging the election results in Georgia and other states around the country, the Democrats are now trying to imply that Loeffler and Perdue have been insufficiently loyal to the president.

The billboards Really American PAC is seeking to post around Georgia explicitly state this in text that appears alongside images of Loeffler and Perdue: “Georgia Republicans Didn’t Fight For Trump. We Won’t Fight For Them.”

This revelation that key figures in the Democrat Party—who stand to benefit politically from a Democrat-controlled U.S. Senate if their candidates Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock defeat Perdue and Loeffler respectively—are behind these attempts to create such divisions comes as no surprise to Trump supporters, who are acutely aware that the president’s supporters are firmly behind the GOP candidates for U.S. Senate in Georgia in the runoffs.

In particular, as Breitbart News reported earlier on Monday, Donald Trump Jr.—President Trump’s eldest son—put to bed any suggestion that Trump supporters should be thinking about sitting out the runoff elections in Georgia.

In response to the Breitbart News article, some of those on the right who had been hyping these concerns about Republicans sitting out the election—like activist Ali Alexander, who’s been behind many of the #StopTheSteal rallies around the country—assured followers there is no division and Trump supporters will rally behind Loeffler and Perdue.

Nationally syndicated radio host Rush Limbaugh also suggested on his program on Monday that Trump himself should head to Georgia to rally with the GOP Senators, as Vice President Mike Pence already has since the election. and others in Trump’s orbit have or intend to do soon.

The idea that Loeffler and Perdue have not stood with Trump all the way through this fight is on its face untrue. They both have issued statements in support of the president’s recount push and backed him at every turn—and again, the Trump administration knows this, which is why Pence held two rallies last week with the two senators.

When asked about these billboards from Democrats seeking to divide Republicans, the Georgia Republican Party dismissed them as “deceitful campaign tactics” designed to “manipulate voters.”

“Democrats are desperate to elect Radical Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff so they can implement Schumer and Pelosi’s radical socialist agenda, and unfortunately for Georgians, that includes deceitful campaign tactics to manipulate voters,” Georgia GOP spokeswoman Abigail Sigler told Breitbart News. “But their attempts to divide Republicans are pointless. Georgians know that Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue continue to stand with our President.”

Really American PAC had tweeted the images of the planned billboards and a plea that linked to a fundraising page on ActBlue, the formal Democrat Party fundraising platform. When Breitbart News asked the organization for comment, the group declined—and then the original tweet disappeared.

“We’re crowdfunding billboards in counties that went for Trump in Georgia to let Trump supporters know that the GA Republicans didn’t fight for them, they shouldn’t fight for Loeffler & Perdue,” the tweet read. It encouraged followers to retweet it, and “chip in” to “help get this done.”

As of publication of this article, though, the fundraising plea on ActBlue’s website is still active.

The ActBlue fundraising plea for the Really American PAC billboards goes even further than the tweet does in attempting to create and foment intra-GOP divisions to help the Democrats take the Senate.

The Democrats’ fundraising website reads:

Trump supporters in Georgia are saying that because David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler couldn’t deliver a victory in Georgia for Trump, MAGA supporters should not deliver a victory for them in the run-off election. We agree. That’s why we’re crowdfunding these billboards in the counties in Georgia that voted for Trump in the highest numbers: Georgia Republicans Didn’t Fight For Trump. We Won’t Fight For Them.

The battle in Georgia could determine a lot about the future of the country. If Biden does end up overcoming the election challenges from Trump and remains in the lead, then the GOP having a majority in the Senate would be a check on a Biden administration. If the Democrats did take control of the Senate, they would, even though they would have a very slim majority, control the floor and committees in such a scenario that the people of Georgia could stop if they reelect Sens. Perdue and Loeffler.

It remains to be seen what will happen, but Democrats are already aggressively pursuing these seats, as evidenced by this billboard campaign and by efforts that failed former gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams is leading to stuff as many absentee ballots into the public sphere as she can ahead of the election. Abrams bragged earlier on Monday about how, according to her claims, more than three quarters of a million such ballot requests had gone out already after the state began sending them out a few days ago.

Stacey Abrams: ‘More than 750,000’ Georgians Already Requested Mail Ballots for Runoff Election

Failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams announced Monday that “more than 750,000 Georgians have requested their ballots” for the Senate runoff election taking place on January 5.

“More than 750,000 Georgians have requested their ballots for the January 5 runoff elections,” Abrams wrote. “Have you? Request yours today and let’s get it done… again.”

Included in Abrams’ announcement on Twitter was a gif with the caption: “I’ve got a secret for you… we’re going to win.”

Also included in Abrams’s tweet was a link at which Georgia residents can request a mail-in ballot for the runoff elections between Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) and her Democrat challenger, Raphael Warnock, and another between Sen. David Perdue (R-GA) and his Democrat opponent, Jon Ossoff.

In an effort to shift power in the Senate to Democrats, a voting rights group founded by Abrams has already reportedly dropped $2.7 million ahead of the runoff election.

Earlier this month, it was reported that those two Senate races in the Peach State could be some of the most expensive in history. One estimate said the spending could go beyond $200 million.
