Political Rewind: GOP Leaders Risk Runoff Turnout With Message Of Election Uncertainty
Monday on Political Rewind: Our panel of political experts discusses the continued baseless attacks on the integrity of the election. Over the Thanksgiving holiday, President Donald Trump continued his efforts to undermine the outcome of the presidential election. He insists, without evidence, that President-elect Joe Biden’s victory in Georgia was based on massive fraud. Meanwhile, some allies of the president attacked Republican U.S. Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler for not doing enough to support the election fraud claims.
Will the ongoing allegations of fraud suppress GOP turnout in the Senate runoff election on Jan. 5? And how will President-elect Biden respond to the belief by a large number of Americans that he is not the legitimate winner of the race?
