Georgia state Rep. Vernon Jones (D-Ga.), a Democrat who is a supporter of President Donald Trump, on Jan. 2 called on voters to back Sens. David Perdue (R-Ga.) and Kelly Loeffler (R-Ga.) ahead of this week’s crucial U.S. Senate runoffs set to determine control of the upper chamber, saying that there is “so much at stake” for the country.

Senate Republican incumbents Perdue and Loeffler are up against Democrats Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warn
