In November, the NSRC said David Perdue would win in a Georgia runoff. Breitbart.com reported then:
National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) Executive Director Kevin McLaughlin said in a statement on Thursday that Sen. David Perdue would defeat Georgia Senate Democrat Jon Ossoff should the race move to a runoff election. He explained:
David Perdue won this race in regular time and will do the same in overtime. Georgians have rejected Jon Ossoff’s liberal, socialist agenda not once, not twice, but three times. And the fourth time will not be the charm, but instead, a perfectly miserable experience for Jon Ossoff, national Democrats and their shared dream of a socialist America.
The Senate election would move to a runoff election if neither candidate achieves 50 percent support in the Georgia Senate race.
Ossoff was a candidate for the 2017 special election to represent Georgia’s sixth congressional district. He qualified for the runoff but then lost to Republican Karen Handel in June 2017.
The NRSC’s statement follows as Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) and Georgia Senate Democrat candidate Raphael Warnock qualified for the runoff election in January for the Georgia special election.
Democrat National Committee (DNC) Chairman Tom Perez said in August that the two Georgia Senate races served as critical seats for their fight to take the Senate majority.
