President Donald Trump is urging Republican voters in north Georgia to turn out and vote in Tuesday’s special election that will determine which party controls the Senate.

Speaking at a rally in Dalton, Trump said “the stakes in this election could not be higher” as he warned a boisterous crowd of several thousand supporters about Democrats winning control of the Senate.

Trump also repeated the false assertion that he won the presidential race in Georgia. Election officials from both political parties have stated publicly that the election went well and international observers confirmed there were no serious irregularities.

The president said he’s had two elections in Georgia and claims he “won both.”

Trump said Democrats won’t be “taking this White House. We’re gonna fight like hell, I’ll tell you right now.”

Trump is campaigning for Republican Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler. Earlier Monday, President-elect Joe Biden campaigned for Democratic challengers Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock.

The president’s trip Monday comes a day after disclosure of a remarkable telephone call he made to the Georgia secretary of state over the weekend. Trump pressured Republican Brad Raffensperger to “find” enough votes to overturn Georgia’s election results ahead of Wednesday’s joint session of Congress that will certify Biden’s Electoral College victory.

The call highlighted how Trump has used the Georgia campaign to make clear his continued hold on Republican politics.
