“January 6 is a long way, right now we’ve run the Senate to run here in Georgia,” Loeffler said. “We have won. The future of the country is on the ballot. I am focused on making sure that we win, hold the line here in Georgia against leftist, democratic socialist policies, and that is it. I am every Day. “
When pressed that she was leaving the option open, Loeffler replied: “I haven’t seen it. January 6 is a long way to go. There’s a lot to play between now.”
Loeffler, who is being challenged by the Rev. Rafael Warnock, also refused to call Biden president-elect during a brief news conference after casting his ballot Wednesday morning for the Georgia race. She defied or ignored a number of straight questions about the results of the presidential election, claiming that she was focusing all her energy on the January 5 runoff.
“The president has the right to every legal recourse,” she said. “This is what is playing right now. I am focused on winning this race on January 5.”
Both GOP candidates in Georgia runoff have found themselves in a difficult position as they attempt to fire Republican base voters for participating in runoff, which is expected to be very close.
His efforts have been complicated by President Donald Trump, who, despite supporting Loeffler and GOP Sen. David Purdue, spent much of his time in Georgia challenging presidential results and attacking key Republicans who oversee the voting process Spent time and confirmed the results. .
Accusing Warners of disrespecting voters in Georgia, Warnock reacted immediately to Loeffler’s comments on Wednesday.
“After refusing for weeks to accept the basic fact that Joe Bedon and Kamala Harris won the election,” Warnock said in a statement, Kyle Loeffler is now leaving the door open to challenge those results in Congress, “Warnock said in a statement. “This is careless and disrespectful of Georgia voters.”
Republican voters in Georgia have pressured Lofler and Perdew heavily to demonstrate support for Trump’s ominous quest to reverse the results. Some people have stopped his campaign and demanded that he do more to stand up for Trump. When the pair appeared on stage with Trump during a rally in Valdosta, the crowd exploded in a chant of “Battle for Trump.”
This leaves Loeffler and Perdeau in a position where they were forced to carefully incite through the sensitive issue and to have full loyalty to Trump, despite the reality of the presidential results. So much so that when Loeffer was asked Wednesday if she would ever accept that Biden won the election to which she replied:
“Look, there will be a time for him, if he comes true.”
Loeffler says that there may be a win or lose on 6 January. Because she is filling the seat vacated by Sen. Johnny Isakson’s retirement, she will remain in office until the results of runoff are certified by the Georgia Secretary of State. It may take a week or more, depending on how long it takes for all votes to be counted. It is likely that even if she is clearly defeated, she may still be a member of the Senate when Congress convenes to take the electoral college results.
