The Georgia Senate runoffs remain under an intense microscope. On Tuesday, Georgia voters who did not cast early ballots will have the chance to vote at the ballot box. Already, though, political specialists and consultants are warning that it’s unlikely to learn the results of the runoffs on January 5.

Many Georgians, and other Americans for that matter, have concerns about whether or not these runoff races will be transparent, fair, and clean. Yesterday, GOP Sen. David Perdue, who is up for re-election against Democrat Jon Ossoff, informed that the election is being monitored to ensure its integrity.

This past Tuesday, Georgia Republican Governor Brian Kemp also vowed that next week’s special elections will be completely transparent, according to Breitbart News.

The Vow for Transparent Georgia Special Elections

Yesterday, the Georgia governor appeared on Fox News Channel to explain what Georgia and the rest of America can expect in the Senate runoffs. Kemp explained that many election volunteers in Georgia have stepped up to the plate to ensure the fairness and transparency of the senatorial runoffs. Likewise, the GOP governor described the Georgia Republican Party as “engaged.”

While speaking with Fox News Channel, Kemp also noted the record numbers of voter turnout in these Georgia special elections. More than 2.3 million voters have cast their ballots; over 1.5 million of those votes occurred in person. Meanwhile, more than 802,000 Georgia residents cast their votes via absentee ballot.

The Georgia governor then reaffirmed the importance of his state’s residents voting for Sens. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue. Kemp explained that voting to send both Georgia Republicans back to the Senate will “stop socialism.”

He also pointed out that the Peach State is the “red wall” against radical policies that congressional Democrats such as Nancy Pelosi, Bernie Sanders, and Chuck Schumer seek to enact.

A Final Boost from President Trump

On January 4, the eve of Election Day, President Trump will return to Georgia for one last rally in support of the Georgia Republicans.

The 45th president has consistently called upon Georgians to vote for Perdue and Loeffler. Trump will be in Dalton, Georgia at the city’s regional airport on Monday evening. Supporters are expected to come out in droves, as is par for the course at Trump rallies. Both Georgia Republicans will also be joining Trump’s rally to share remarks in five days.
