Trump announces Georgia rally next week

President Trump announced Sunday that he’ll hold a rally in Georgia on the eve of a crucial Senate run-off — and will be in the nation’s capital when Congress votes to certify the electoral vote.

“On behalf of two GREAT Senators, @sendavidperdue & KLoeffler, I will be going to Georgia on Monday night, January 4th, to have a big and wonderful RALLY,” he said on Twitter. “So important for our country that they win!”

That would put him in the state one day before GOP incumbent senators David Purdue and Kelly Loeffler are facing a run-off election, with Republican control of the Senate hanging in the balance.

Democrats Jon Ossoff and the Rev. Raphael Warnock are vying to eliminate the GOP’s two-seat majority in the legislative chamber.

The two have raised more than $200 million between them — by far the most in a Senate race this year. More than 2 million Georgians have cast early votes in the race.

Trump staged his first post-election rally in Georgia on Dec. 5.

He also tweeted that he will be in DC on Jan. 6 — when lawmakers are due to confirm his electoral college loss to former Vice President Joe Biden, a loss Trump has refused to accept.

“See you in Washington, DC, on January 6th,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “Don’t miss it. Information to follow!”
