(TargetLiberty.org) – Last week former President Trump was indicted by a Fulton County grand jury in connection to his attempts to overturn the presidential elections results in the state in 2020. This has led to the Georgia presidential election once again being in the spotlight.
In 2020, Georgia turned blue for the first time in 24 years. The 2020 election also led to the Republicans losing two Senate seats, and during last year’s midterm election, the Republicans did not manage to win back one of those seats.
Republicans in Georgia are worried about the possibility of this continuing in the next presidential election, which could potentially mean that the swing state might play an important role in determining who will win the White House.
John Watson, a former state GOP chairman argued that Trump was the one to turn Georgia into a competitive state. He argued that the Georgia electorate was consistent with the Republican conservative majority in the General Assembly and the leadership of Kemp. He proceeded to note that to determine Trump’s influence in the state one needed to just ask the three Republican senatorial candidates, David Perdue, Herschel Walker, and Kelly Loeffler who had not managed to win their elections.
Trump’s recent indictment in Georgia also included 18 co-defendants and it was led by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis. The indictment and charges are connected to the defendant’s attempts to overturn the election results and have Trump appear as the winner in the state. Despite the four indictments against Trump, he continues to be the leader of the 2024 GOP primary race.
