Ivanka Trump to campaign for Loeffler, Perdue in Georgia — ‘Stop socialism and save our country’

-

The memo:

  • Ivanka Trump will travel to Georgia on Monday to campaign for Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue.
  • This is the latest clear affirmation that Team Trump is 100% supportive of the Republican Senate campaigns.

Ivanka Trump will travel to Georgia on Monday to campaign for U.S. Senators Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) and David Perdue (R-GA), according to a Friday release.

The White House advisor and first daughter will reportedly attend separate events in Milton, Suwanee and Walton County.

“I’m honored to be back in the great state of Georgia to campaign for my friends Senator David Perdue & Senator Kelly Loeffler,” she said in a statement. “Over the last four years we’ve fought for the hardworking people of Georgia, securing historic tax cuts and better trade deals, increasing access to affordable childcare, advocating for small businesses and delivering for our military. We must ensure that Republicans hold the Senate in order to continue advancing policies that lift up all Americans.”

This will come after Vice President Mike Pence’s and Donald Trump, Jr.’s respective visits to the Peach State this week.

“Ivanka has been instrumental in helping President Trump make America great again and we’re thrilled to have her campaign with us in these critical elections,” stated Perdue on Friday. “She knows that the good work we’ve partnered on during the last four years could be at great risk if Georgians don’t get out and vote. We know that she’ll help to deliver that important message and we’re excited to have her on the trail.”

Trump Jr. is on Perdue’s “Win Georgia, Save American” bus tour this weekend, including a stop in Ocilla on Friday night followed by “Defend the Majority” rallies in Bulloch and Catoosa counties on Saturday.

Ivanka Trump is the latest top surrogate of the president to campaign for the Georgia Republicans in their runoff elections. President Trump himself appeared at a rally for Perdue and Loeffler earlier this month.

“I am so excited to welcome Ivanka back to Georgia to help David and I stop socialism and save our country. I’ve been honored to work with Ivanka and the entire Trump administration to expand school choice, bolster economic opportunities, create safer communities and restore America’s position on a world stage. Like President Trump, Ivanka knows that the future of our country is on the line in Georgia—which is why I’m so honored to have the Trump family’s complete and total support,” commented Loeffler. “l will keep fighting to build on the success of President Trump’s America First Agenda as we work together toward a big win on January 5th.”

Early voting is already underway in Georgia’s runoffs. On January 5, Loeffler will face Raphael Warnock, and Perdue is being challenged by Jon Ossoff.
