The victories of Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue on January 5th in the Georgia Senate runoffs are crucial for preserving President Donald Trump's legacy in one of the most critical areas — the federal judiciary.

Volunteer during the Georgia runoffs for 2 U.S. Senate seats in January. Irregularities cannot be exposed unless poll watchers and absentee ballot counting observers are on the ground to observe what is taking place.Read more
