Former President Barack Obama stressed on Monday the importance of the second round of elections in Georgia.
“The stakes couldn’t be higher,” Obama warned on social media, urging voters to help Democratic candidates Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock topple Republican Senators Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue in races that could ultimately determine who wins control of the US Senate.
“We see how far some will go to retain power and threaten the fundamentals of our democracy,” Obama wrote. “But our democracy is not about any individual, even a president – it’s you.
Obama encouraged voters in Georgia to respond “with the most powerful tool we have as Americans – your vote.”
If the Democratic challengers win both seats, the Senate will be split 50/50 and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris will receive the deciding vote.
Obama’s messages came as his successor, President Donald Trump, continued to deny the reality of his 2020 election defeat to President-elect Joe Biden – Trump’s latest attempt being to pressure the Secretary of State.

At a rally in Georgia on Monday night, Trump falsely denounced the “rigged” election again and claimed without evidence that “Democrats are trying to rob the White House, you can’t let them.”
