Kelly Loeffler: Republican Secretary of State should resign over election

Joint Statement From Senators Perdue & Loeffler: "The management of Georgia elections has become an embarrassment. Georgians are outraged, and rightly so. Every legal vote cast should be counted. Any illegal vote must not. The mismanagement and lack of transparency from the Secretary of State is unacceptable. Honest elections are paramount to the foundation of our democracy. The Secretary of State has failed to deliver honest and transparent elections. He has failed the people of Georgia, and he should step down immediately."

The Republican Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger responded: "Senators Loeffler and Perdue called for my resignation. That is not going to happen. From an election administration perspective, the election was a resounding success. Almost 5 million Georgians cast a vote in this election--that is a record turnout. The process of reporting results followed the law. Where there have been allegations of illegal voting, my office has dispatched investigators."

Jon Ossoff: AdWatch: Fighting corruption is my job; no PAC donations

I'm Jon Ossoff and I lead a business that investigates corruption for news organizations worldwide. We've exposed sexual slavery by ISIS; crooked judges; child trafficking; and bribery. Truth is, corruption is why politicians let health insurance companies rip off our families, and polluters poison our air and water. Fighting corruption is my job; and it's what I'll do as your senator. That's why I'm refusing donations from corporate PACs, and why I approve this message.

Raphael Warnock: Restore Voting Rights Act to ensure elections are fair

Reverend Warnock understands that our vote is our voice, and that the ability to use our voice is a matter of human dignity. The best way to honor John Lewis' legacy is not to simply offer pious platitudes, but to get busy restoring the Voting Rights Act that was gutted by the Supreme Court. And in the middle of a global pandemic, it also means giving states the resources they need to protect access to the vote for all. Our elections must be fair, open, and safe for every eligible citizen.
