U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham is taking action to deal with the “tsunami of liberal money” coming into Georgia ahead of two critical runoff elections.
The South Carolina Republican plans to donate one million dollars to the campaigns of two Georgia GOP incumbents who are set to face off against Democratic challengers after last week’s election failed to deliver 50% of the vote to any candidate. The fate of Republican Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler may determine the balance of power in the U.S. Senate as Republicans work to keep the majority.
Graham spoke about his monetary contribution to the Georgia campaigns on Thursday, telling Fox News that Democrats are pouring everything into the state in an effort to flip the seats and the Senate.
“I’m going to donate a million dollars to Senators Loeffler and Perdue from my campaign to make sure they have the resources to combat a tsunami of liberal money about to sink Georgia,” the Senate Judiciary Committee chairman told “Fox & Friends” on Thursday.

“The Democrats outspent us in 2020 probably three-to-one,” Graham said.
The GOP lawmaker won his fourth term in the U.S. Senate, defeating his Democratic challenger Jaime Harrison who raised jaw-dropping amounts of money using the “Act Blue” app.
“My opponent raised $140 million through the Act Blue giving app, where liberals all over America can send small donations in to Democratic candidates,” Graham said, adding that his own campaign raised $108 million.
He asked Republicans to direct fundraising efforts to the Peach State in order to stem the “radical agenda” of Democrats.
“If we don’t combat Act Blue, we’re in trouble,” the senator continued, explaining how the GOP alternative to the app, “Win Red,” helps Republicans raise campaign funds. Using the Win Red platform, Republicans raised about “$1 billion” in 2020, according to Graham who added that Act Blue raised “$1.5 billion in donations in the last three months.”
“We’ve got to get better. I’ve got two million donors. I’m going to ask my donors to help Georgia and I want to encourage every other Republican, just don’t go to Georgia, give to Georgia,” Graham said.
Responding to “Fox & Friends” co-host Ainsley Earhardt’s question about how important the Georgia race is to American families, the lawmaker explained how Democrats will use a victory there and the subsequent Senate majority to move ahead on their far-left agenda, packing the Supreme Court and eliminating the Electoral College.
“What we’re trying to do is stop the most radical agenda in the history of American politics from being enacted and Georgia stands in the way of socialism for America,” Graham said.
“So to my friends in Georgia, we’ve never needed you more. What you do on January 5th will determine what America looks like,” he said. “If we lose the Senate because Georgia got it wrong, [Vermont Senator] Bernie Sanders will be chairman of the Budget Committee. That’s about as big a difference as you can think of.”
Meanwhile, Democrats have launched a campaign to get voters to actually move to Georgia ahead of the runoff so they can vote in January and tip the outcome in their favor.

The National Republican Senatorial Committee revealed that it is making “major investments” in operations in Georgia as key Republicans, including incoming NRSC chair Sen. Rick Scott, head there to campaign with Loeffler and Perdue.
“This is a presidential level voter contact operation that is unprecedented and will be a key part of success for the campaigns in Georgia,” NRSC communications director Jesse Hunt told Fox News on Thursday.
“Our teams have been working in lockstep with one another to plan for this exact scenario that ended up unfolding. I think that just speaks to the preparedness and cohesion that we’ve seen from Republicans here in Georgia since we’ve moved to these two runoffs and it bodes well for our efforts to hold the Senate majority for Republicans,” Hunt added.
