MILTON, Ga. – EXCLUSIVE: Former Republican Georgia Sen. Kelly Loeffler is imploring Georgians to turn out in large numbers for the Dec. 6 runoff election between incumbent Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock and GOP nominee Herschel Walker.

“That’s what it’s going to take, really strong turnout because, look, Herschel Walker got outspent by over $70 million and there’s only a 35,000 vote difference in a state of 7 and a half million registered voters. So, it is vital that turnout is ours this time,” she said.

“Look, when I’m out with Georgians every day talking to them, they’re about what’s going on around the kitchen table, the impact on their lives, the out-of-control spending in Washington, the woke indoctrination…
