The stakes couldn’t be any higher in the ongoing Georgia Senate races. In order for the GOP to keep control of the upper congressional body, both Sens. Perdue and Loeffler must emerge victorious in their races against Democrats Ossoff and Warnock.

Already, Democrats have set their sights on Georgia. Some have even openly flirted with the idea of moving to Georgia, simply to vote for Ossoff and Warnock; talk about doing this became so widespread that Georgia had to release a statement, explaining that such an act constitutes a felony in the Peach State.

The runoffs in January are currently expected to be close and down to the wire. However, a new poll is already showing that Sen. Perdue and Democrat Ossoff are each in a 49% tie, per Newsmax.

What to Know About the Tie Between Perdue and Ossoff

Per a recent poll from Fox5, Perdue and Ossoff are both coming in at 49%, with only 2% of undecided Georgia voters.

The news of such a tight race arrives as both Perdue and Ossoff campaign intensely against one another. Ossoff has repeatedly unloaded on Perdue for refusing to debate him again; however, Perdue maintains that Ossoff lied in previous debates and failed to defend what the Georgia senator calls a “radical socialist agenda.”

Nevertheless, Ossoff continues to demand six more debates between himself and Perdue; furthermore, he is campaigning alongside Raphael Warnock, the Democrat seeking to unseat Georgia Sen. Kelly Loeffler. If Ossoff and Warnock successfully unseat the current GOP incumbents, then the Senate will flip back to a Democrat majority.

Getting Out the Vote

In order for Sens. Perdue and Loeffler to hang onto their seats, getting out the vote in Georgia is going to be imperative.

This Friday, Vice President Mike Pence will travel to Gainesville, Georgia in order to campaign on behalf of both Georgia senators. A rally in Gainesville will take place on Friday where Georgians will gather in support of defending the Senate majority.

Republicans across the nation are rooting for Perdue and Loeffler to win their races against Ossoff and Warnock. No matter the outcome of the 2020 presidential election, Republicans — and Americans — will be in for some tough times if Democrats have majority control in both the House of Representatives and the Senate.
