image for Democrats Are Telling Georgians To Dump Their Republican Senators If They Want More Aid

The Democrats running in Georgia, Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock, immediately announced that they supported the president’s call.

“I need two senators from this state who want to get something done — not two senators who are just going to get in the way.

The campaigns plan to continue criticizing Perdue and Loeffler over the issue in the final days ahead of the election. »
