Trump Ally Says it Would be ‘folly’ for President to Stump for Georgia’s GOP Senators

Truncated from: The Washington Examiner

President Trump should stay far away from Georgia’s Senate runoff elections, according to one top ally and campaign adviser.

A visit by Trump to the state to stump for Republican Sens. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue “would be folly,” said John Fredericks, a radio host and Trump campaign advisory board member.

Though the pair of Senate races will determine whether the Republican Party maintains control of the chamber, Fredericks sees a more pressing issue: Trump’s own race, which hangs in the balance until state’s electors vote on Dec. 14.

Trump “absolutely should not come to Georgia,” Fredericks told the Washington Examiner on Monday. “Georgia Republicans have to get out Georgia voters.”

Instead, the president should do “exactly what he’s doing: run the country and stay on top of his legal team to make sure that every legal vote is counted and every illegal vote is thrown out,” he said.

Fearful what a Democratic White House paired with majorities in the Senate and House could mean, Georgia Republicans are clamoring for a Trump visit.
