ATLANTA, Ga. (WCTV) - It’s been pedal to the metal for Republicans in Georgia ahead of the state’s two run-off elections for spots in the United States Senate.

President Donald Trump made another stop along the campaign trail on Monday, in Dalton, Georgia, to rally for incumbent Senators David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler, who are vying to et every conservative in the state to cast a ballot.

WCTV spoke with Senator Perdue on Sunday, who is in a five-day quarantine after being exposed to COVID-19. Even stuck at home, he isn’t slowing down: Perdue has taken advantage of every opportunity afforded to him; calling into radio shows, interviewing with TV stations and making virtual appearances at campaign events.

All of this followed a 100-stop bus tour as he fights for, what he believes, will map out the next 50-100 years in America.

“I just like to remind people it’s not about the ads, it’s not about candidates and, at this point, it’s not about the issues any longer, it’s about the future direction of the country,” Perdue said.

Loeffler has also been going non-stop, making stops across the state to get conservatives to the poles.

For the GOP, it’s a particularly dire situation: If they lose both races, they lose majority control of the Senate.

Democrats, who have already won the oval office, also control the House of Representatives. Republicans say a win of these two seats would allow liberals an open door to implement far-left policies and reverse much of what the Trump administration has done.

In Valdosta on Tuesday, Loeffler made one final plea to voters.

“Make sure your voice is heard,” she said. “That is vitally important to saving the future of this country, to protecting the American dream and to standing up to socialism.”
