Tennessee Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R) called two Georgia Democrat runoff candidates “absolutely the most radical candidates that have ever been Senate nominees.”
She pointed to remarks by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) about Democrats’ plans to take over the Senate and then, the country, by getting Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff elected in January runoff elections after no candidate in either race got 50% of the vote in Georgia.
“Look at Chuck Schumer’s remarks,” Blackburn started off. “He didn’t say we’re going to go win Georgia, we’re going to fight for every vote. He said, ‘First we take Georgia.’ How disrespectful of Georgia voters. ‘First, we take Georgia then we change America.’
“And that socialist agenda should scare people,” she continued. “I mean, he’s talking about defunding the police, statehood for D.C., packing the court, taking away your health insurance, implementing the Green New Deal, repealing the Trump tax cuts, and they say that is their first 100-day agenda if they’re in charge of everything.”
Blackburn said the people of Georgia do not want the socialist path that these candidates will take the state–and the country–down if they get elected.
