Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-Ga.) repeatedly dodged answering whether she believed President Donald Trump lost the 2020 presidential election during a debate with her Democratic challenger Raphael Warnock.
Warnock and Loeffler are battling for one of two Senate seats in Georgia’s runoff election. Jon Ossoff and Sen. David Perdue (R-Ga.) are vying for the other one. The results of those two runoff elections will determine the makeup of the Senate during President-elect Joe Biden’s early tenure in the White House.
Meanwhile, Trump has fixated on the Georgia election results, which Biden won after a recount.
Loeffler and Warnock debated each other on Sunday night, where the Georgia Republican repeatedly refused to acknowledge that Trump lost he election.
Warnock asked Loeffler directly to answer “yes or no” whether Trump lost a “recent presidential election.” Instead of answering the question, Loeffler responded by saying that the president had “every right to use every legal resource available” to challenge the results.
