Pres Trump Says He’s Heading to Georgia to Campaign for GOP Senators; Record 788K People Request Ballots Ahead of Georgia Runoff Elections, and other GA Runoff News

Trump says he’s heading to Georgia to campaign for GOP senators:
President Trump said Thursday he will visit Georgia to campaign for incumbent GOP Sens. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue, likely this weekend ahead of their Jan. 5 run-offs.
The commander in chief announced his plans while speaking to reporters following a Thanksgiving video conference with military members stationed abroad, saying he would head out “probably Saturday.”
“Speaking of Georgia, we’re going there. I spoke with the two great senators today. I’ll probably be going on Saturday,” Trump said, adding that he planned to hold some type of campaign rally.
He went on to argue that people in the Peach State felt “very disappointed we were robbed,” appearing to allude to his losing Georgia to President-elect Joe Biden. --->READ MORE HERE

Record 788K people request ballots ahead of Georgia runoff elections:
A record 788,535 people have requested ballots ahead of the two run-off elections on Jan. 5 that will decide control of the US Senate, Georgia’s secretary of state’s office tells The Post.
The figure, the latest number as of Tuesday morning, amounts to nearly three times the number of ballots requested during the 2018 midterms, when just under 285,000 votes were cast by absentee.
On Monday, Georgia’s Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger and the state Election Board voted to extend the use of 24/7 ballot drop boxes for use during the run-offs. The boxes were set to expire in late December.
All eyes have focused on two Senate battles in Georgia, both with GOP incumbents. The current balance of the Senate is 50 Republicans and 48 Democrats, meaning that whichever way these two seats go will decide which party controls the upper chamber of Congress. --->READ MORE HERE
