GOP Group To Pour $10 Million Into Georgia Senate Runoffs

    David Drucker of the Washington Examiner highlights one Republican group's money pledge for critical Georgia Senate races.

  • The Club for Growth is investing $10 million in Georgia to preserve the Republican Party's Senate majority, with plans to boost GOP candidates in two Jan. 5 runoff elections that will determine the balance of power on Capitol Hill for the next two years.
  • Besides spending $10 million or more on a robust advertising campaign, the Club for Growth is collaborating with five conservative groups and about one dozen Republican senators and senators-elect to push Sen. David Purdue past Democratic challenger Jon Ossoff and help Sen. Kelly Loeffler hold off Democratic challenger Rafael Warnock. With presumptive President-elect Joe Biden poised to take the White House on Jan. 20, Senate Republicans can afford to lose just one of the two Georgia seats and still retain their majority.
  • "The Georgia run-off elections are about more than two Senate seats, the races are about control of the Senate and preventing an increasingly radical Democratic Party from undoing every American institution and instituting socialism," Club for Growth Action President David McIntosh said in a statement provided to the Washington Examiner late Tuesday.
  • "We are bringing together organizations and leaders to support and engage conservatives in Georgia," McIntosh added.
  • Participating in what the Club for Growth is dubbing the "Save America Coalition" are conservative groups For America, FreedomWorks, Heritage Action for America, the Susan B. Anthony List, and Tea Party Patriots.
  • The Republican lawmakers involved include Sens. Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee; Ted Cruz of Texas; Steve Daines of Montana; Josh Hawley of Missouri; Ron Johnson of Wisconsin; Mike Lee of Utah; Marco Rubio of Florida; and Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania and GOP Sens.-elect Cynthia Lummis of Wyoming and Tommy Tuberville of Alabama. Ex-South Carolina Sen. Jim DeMint also plans to join former colleagues as they stump across Georgia, sometimes via a bus tour being organized by the Club for Growth.
