Vice President Mike Pence pointed into the lively crowd and said Georgia is “up for the task” as the Jan. 5 runoff approaches for the U.S. Senate election.

Pence made his way to Gainesville as part of his “Defend the Majority Rally.” The stop was held at the Chicopee Woods Agricultural Center promptly at 3:15 p.m.

Mike Pence, Senators David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler, as well as Commissioner McDonald, spoke to hundreds of Georgia voters.

With the first election results for Senate, Warnock obtained under 33% of the vote. Loeffler received under 26% and Republican Doug Collins – who ran against Loeffler for the conservative vote – received under 20%. Since Collins conceded Loeffler, he has since then endorsed her. This gives potential to unite the Republican vote in the January runoff.

Loeffler will face Rafael Warnock. Perdue will run against Democratic challenger Jon Ossoff.

A runoff election is a second election that is held to determine a winner. This happens when neither candidate in the first election met the required threshold to win. Georgia law states that if no candidate breaks 50%, the top two vote-getters will run again to determine a winner.

Perdue stressed to voters the importance of early voting with his worry of ice storms in Georgia.

“We need your help to make sure the road to socialism never runs through the state of Georgia,” Perdue said. “By getting the vote out again, we will tell America and the Democratic party and the world that the work we’ve done the last four year has not been for not. We’re going to protect the work of Donald Trump and Mike Pence over the last four years that made America great again.”

Pence promised the voters that they are and will continue to fight on a legal matter with getting in the correct votes for the 2020 election and for America. Pence said President Donald Trump and himself stand strong with both Perdue and Loeffler.

“We’re going to keep fighting until every legal vote is counted. We’re going to keep fighting until every illegal vote is thrown out and whatever the future holds, we will never stop fighting to make America great again,” Pence said. “That’s why Georgia and America need David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler back in a Republican majority.”

Pence spoke to the crowd to campaign for Perdue and Loeffler with the upcoming January runoff. The runoff is crucial to the Republican party, beings it will determine which party has control over the Senate.

Loeffler reiterated to voters what is important to her, which is “conservative values.”

“It is our job to keep America great, keep fighting for this President, keep fighting for this Vice President because they love America,” Loeffler said. “We’re going to be fighting for your conservative values.”

The Vice President also took the time to talk about the successes of the Trump Administration, highlighted the restoration of America’s military and said Trump has been a man of his word. Additionally, Loeffler, Perdue, Pence and Trump are firm believers in supporting law enforcement.

Pence stated that Pfizer turned in their vaccine to the FDA, with 40 million vaccines to be distributed across America by the end of the year.

“That’s the leadership of President Donald Trump; we’re in the miracle business,” Pence said.

The Georgia Secretary of State officially reported President Trump’s loss of Georgia overall in the 2020 election. President-elect Joe Biden makes him the first Democratic presidential nominee to win Georgia since Bill Clinton in 1992.

With early, in-person voting in Georgia starting on Dec. 13, Pence said it is crucial to go out and vote for Senators that will continue to defend important American rights.

“A careful study of U.S. history shows that every time the American people are given a choice, between a future of more freedom and a future of less freedom, the American people choose freedom every time…so go tell them freedoms on the ballot on January 5.”

The second runoff will be between Republican Sen. Kelly Loeffler and Democrat Raphael Warnock. The outcome of the runoff will determine which party will have control over the Senate.

Loeffler made it clear to the Georgia voters that she plans to continue to be the voice for each of them.

“Make no mistake, we are the firewall, not just for the U.S. Senate but for the future of our country,” Loeffler said.

The runoff is crucial to the representation of the Republican party. All Georgia citizens have to do is get their vote out, Perdue said.

Loeffler said Perdue and herself ensure the “conservative values” for each Georgian, and further stressed the importance of voting in the runoff.

“No one is going to outwork us to make sure that Georgian’s have what they need,” Loeffler said. “America has the freedoms that we deserve and that our God given rights of the Constitution. We’re going to continue for conservative rights, for affordable healthcare, for school choice, for conservative values that lift everyone up. We will be your voice in Washington if you’re our voice on January 5.”
