Still waiting for those GOP senators who voted against impeachment to say something, something. David Cay Johnston calls them “jellyfish”.

President Trump will travel to Georgia on Saturday to campaign for Republican senators in two runoff elections that will decide the Senate majority, amid tensions with Georgia officials over his baseless claims of electoral fraud.

Trump is scheduled to participate in a rally hosted by the Republican National Committee with GOP Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler along with other Republican officials in Valdosta, Ga., Saturday evening. Perdue and Loeffler will face off with Democratic candidates in the runoff election on Jan. 5.

Trump told reporters last week that he planned to campaign in Georgia to boost Republicans in the two runoff elections; the Trump campaign officially announced the rally on Wednesday afternoon.

Trump’s appearance in the Peach State is intended to boost Perdue and Loeffler and help the Republicans maintain control of the Senate. But some Republicans have expressed concerns that Trump’s attacks on the electoral process that have divided the GOP could ultimately hurt Republican chances of holding onto the two Senate seats.
