The “Lincoln Project,” a political action committee of former Republicans that raised tens of millions of dollars in 2020 to defeat President Donald Trump, has declared it will back Democrat Jon Ossoff in the upcoming Senate runoff in Georgia.
“We’re staying in the fight: to defeat Trumpism we must also defeat David Perdue,” the Lincoln Project tweeted Friday, referring to the current Republican incumbent. “Let’s elect Jon Ossoff.”
The Perdue-Ossoff race is headed to a runoff Jan. 5, as is the race between incumbent Republican Sen. Kelly Loeffler and Democrat Raphael Warnock. Under Georgia law, races are subject to a runoff if no candidate achieves a majority the first time around.
