At this point in time, the ongoing special elections in Georgia are front and center of national attention. Republicans and conservatives are heavily supporting Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler; at the same time, Democrat challengers Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock are backed by Democrats and left-wingers across America.
Quite a bit is riding on these runoff races. Republicans are fighting for Perdue and Loeffler to maintain the present GOP majority in the Senate; meanwhile, Democrats want Ossoff and Warnock to flip the Senate blue and under Democrats’ control.
Both sides are ready to fight for their desired outcomes. This explains the newest Washington Examiner report confirming that big money is being thrown into these Georgia special elections.
Massive Donors, Super PACs, and More in the Peach State
According to political analysts, the collective total of funds spent in the Georgia runoffs since November 3 could reach the tune of $500 million dollars by the time January 5 arrives.
Ads attacking the Democrat and Republican candidates in these special elections have surpassed $450 million dollars already; meanwhile, donors remain confident that every penny being spent is worth it.

Republicans throwing big money into this race know that Perdue and Loeffler’s victories will enable the GOP to block the radical policies and nominees that Biden and his left-wing allies/handlers will attempt to push through.
Democrats, on the other hand, know that if Ossoff and Warnock win these races, the left will have a monopolistic dominance on power in the nation’s capital.
Who is Leading Thus Far?
While Ossoff and Warnock have raised more money than Perdue and Loeffler, the Republicans are still ahead in the polls by several points. Meanwhile, conservative groups, such as Club for Growth, are mobilizing behind both GOP incumbent senators to secure their re-elections.

Today, first daughter Ivanka Trump is in Milton, Georgia to campaign for Perdue and Loeffler. In a little over two weeks, President Trump will return to Georgia to host yet another campaign rally in support of both Republican senators. Over this past weekend, first son Donald Trump Jr. also rallied for the GOP incumbents in South Georgia.
Between now and January 5, Americans should expect a lot more campaigning, rallying, and donations to occur in these runoff elections.
