RNLA staff, members, and leaders from other states such as Florida all went to Georgia to help with “Election Day Operations” (EDO) or efforts to ensure the Georgia election was open, fair and honest. Although the term of art is “EDO”, RNLA-related efforts have been going on for weeks.
RNLA was one of the leaders of an effort that was described as follows:
8000 pollwatchers for election day and after. 4000 for early vote, dropboxes, absentee processing, and vote review panels. GA is ready. Go vote! https://t.co/m99qYowjFx— Mike Roman (@mikeroman) January 1, 2021
Clean voter rolls are an important safeguard that protects the integrity of the electoral process. However, one federal judge in Georgia has ruled that several thousand voters who were scheduled to be removed from 2 counties' voter rolls should remain on the rolls ahead of Georgia's Senate runoffs. The catch — the ruling was handed down by U.S. District Judge Leslie Abrams Gardner, the sister of one-time gubernatorial candidate and liberal activist Stacey Abrams.Read more
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. If their Democratic opponents win, Republicans will lose their majority in the U.S. Senate:
As the two Senate races loom, party control of the Senate hangs in the balance, with the upper chamber currently made up of 50 Republicans and 48 Democrats. If Democrats win both runoff elections, raising the total to 50-50, the Democrats will take control of the Senate, with Vice President-elect Kamala Harris serving as the tie-breaking vote.
Without a Republican majority in the Senate, there would be no safeguard in place to block President Joe Biden from appointing radical jurists to the federal bench.Read more
Much like Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, it's still unclear where Georgia Democratic U.S. Senate candidates Raphael Warnock and John Ossoff stand on court packing. Just so it's clear, court packing refers to FDR's unsuccessful attempt to add additional justices to the Supreme Court for political reasons (Dictionary.com conveniently changed the definition to fit the Democrats' narrative that Senate Republicans are somehow doing something wrong by confirming President Trump's nominees to the federal judiciary).Read more
Early voting has officially begun in Georgia to determine who will represent the state in the U.S. Senate. However, concerns still linger from the 2020 general election over the security of Georgia's election system. These concerns are part of a broader pattern of uneasiness about elections across the country. According to a recent Morning Consult survey, 40.6% of the respondents expressed distrust in the U.S. election system. A recent NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist survey reported that only 24% of Republicans thought the results of the 2020 election were accurate.Read more
The Vice President has a message for Georgia voters ahead of January's Senate runoffs:
Georgia, we need you to stay in the fight for integrity in our elections, stay in the fight to Defend the Majority in the Senate until the polls close on January 5th, and stay in the fight to send @Perduesenate and @KLoeffler back to a Republican Majority! pic.twitter.com/oMxjCZD3wm— Mike Pence (@Mike_Pence) December 10, 2020
Americans are understandably frustrated with the 2020 election cycle, and trust in our elections is at an all-time low. But as RNLA shared earlier this week, the fairness of the U.S. election system is worth fighting for. Where can you as a Republican lawyer make a difference? 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
Earlier today, the Trump Campaign's legal team held a press conference at the Republican National Committee headquarters to give an overview of their ongoing litigation. The press conference featured Trump attorneys Rudy Giuliani, Sidney Powell, and Jenna Ellis. It focused on alleged problems in major cities across several states.Read more
Earlier today, Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger announced that the state would be conducting a hand recount of the Presidential race. Secretary of State Raffensperger noted that: "It will be an audit, a recount and a recanvass all at once." He expects the recount to be completed before the state's November 20th deadline to certify the results.
Trump Campaign Communications Director Tim Murtaugh told reporters earlier today: "This is an important first step in the process to ensure that the election was fair and that every legal vote was counted."Read more
