'If You Don't Vote, the Socialists and the Communists Win': Trump Holds Rally for GA Runoff


A huge crowd turned out for the "Victory Rally" at Valdosta Regional Airport Saturday night where President Donald Trump urged Georgia Republicans to vote in the Senate runoff elections.

The rally was to show his support for Republican Senators David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler who are seeking re-election and facing runoff races. Even though they won the majority of the vote in their races on Nov. 3, they needed more than 50 percent to avoid a runoff.

Trump supporters chanted “Stop the Steal!” as he told them that Democrats will “do anything to win. They’ll do anything to cheat. These people are sick…And remember the swing states we’re all fighting over...I won by a lot. But you can’t ever accept when they steal, and rig and rob."

"You must vote for David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler," Trump told the energetic crowd. "With your help, we are going to continue our mission to save America."

Highlighting Democrat progressive policies, he said choosing not to vote will help them achieve their agenda.

"If you don't vote, the socialists and the communists win. We can fight for the presidency, and we can fight for these two great Senators, and we can do it at the same time," he added. “The answer to Democrat fraud is not to stay at home. Show up and vote in record numbers.”

The president specifically addressed the calls by some to boycott the January 5 election because they’re unhappy over allegations of fraud in the presidential election.

"A lot of people – friends of mine – say: 'Let's not vote. We're not going to vote because we're angry about the presidential election,'" Trump said. “But if you do that, the radical left wins, OK?…You can't do that. You actually have to do just the opposite…If you don't vote, the socialists and the communists win. They win. Georgia patriots must show up and vote for these incredible people."

Leading up to the rally, Perdue tweeted that Trump “knows that NO ONE can sit this election out. It’s too important, and we MUST hold the line in the Senate. Looking forward to having him down in Georgia on Saturday!”

Trump supporters lined up early this morning to secure their spot for the rally.

The Georgia Senate runoff races are yielding national attention with big-name supporters.

Vice President Mike Pence was there Friday for a briefing on the coronavirus vaccine and then to rally voters for the GOP Senate candidates.

Pence attended a coronavirus briefing at the CDC's Atlanta-based office then took part in a rally for the Republican candidates. "We're going to save the Senate, and then we're going to save America," he declared.

Former President Barack Obama hosted a virtual rally for the two Democrat challengers. Obama voiced the frustration he felt during his presidency when the Republican-controlled Senate stopped certain proposals. "If the Senate is controlled by Republicans who are interested in obstruction and gridlock, rather than progress and helping people, they can block just about anything," he said.

Democrats hope their candidates, Jon Ossoff and Rev. Raphael Warnock, can flip Georgia's two Senate seats in their runoff races against Perdue and Loeffler. That would leave the Senate with a 50-50 tie between Republicans and Democrats, and the next vice president of the United States would be the tiebreaker.

Republicans need at least one of those seats to guarantee their majority.

Joe Biden tweeted on Friday, "Georgia - our work isn't over yet. Register to vote by December 7th and let's flip the Senate."

Trump also tweeted "the best way to insure a Loeffler and Perdue victory is to allow signature checks in the presidential race, which will insure a Georgia Presidential win."

Accusations of compromised election security and voter fraud in the general election has led some Republicans to call for an election boycott. But Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel is encouraging voters to vote for the party's Senate candidates next month, despite their feelings that the race is fixed. 

Early voting begins on Dec. 14.
