LITHONIA, Ga. – Eight days from election day in Georgia’s crucial Senate runoff race, Democratic candidates John Ossoff and Rafael Warnock are “ringing the alarm” about their ability to keep pace with GOP spending, for “significant growth” at ground level Are calling Donations to prevent running out of money.
“In 8 days to win the election, we need to continue our historic efforts to get every single voter out – but we won’t be able to do that if our fundraising revenue continues to decline,” Warnock campaign manager Jarid Kurtz and Ossoff campaign manager Ellen Foster wrote in a memo obtained by NBC News.
According to financial disclosure forms, both Warnock and Osoff raised more than $ 100 million over the past two months, provoking their Republican opponents, Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler, by significant differences. But groups outside the GOP are overtaking Democratic groups.
“This means that our Republican counterparts do not have to spend much of their precious resources on TV and can invest in the area that is most important at this stage: direct voter contact,” the memo states.
In an election that would hinge on how many voters each party could vote for, Democrats warned that they might soon have to choose between television advertising spending and shoes on the ground. “Our campaigns have to take drastic decisions, and right now we can’t cut resources from our region’s program,” the Democratic campaign manager writes.
According to the Office of the Secretary of State for Georgia, more than 2 million Georgian people have already voted in these runoff elections. The next day is Election Day on Tuesday 5 January.
