President Trump will campaign in Georgia ahead of the run-off elections for the U.S. Senate in January.
Sen. Roy Blunt, a member of Republican leadership in the upper chamber, told CNN’s “State of the Union” that the president’s appearance in Georgia will help restore confidence in voters that the election system is secure.
Mr. Trump is expected to campaign for Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler, two Republicans hoping to keep their seats and retain control of the Senate.
“That will show more strength in the system,” said Mr. Blunt, Missouri Republican.
He also defended Mr. Trump’s right to explore his legal options in alleging widespread voter fraud in the 2020 election, but Mr. Blunt noted that he himself hasn’t seen enough evidence of voter fraud to have changed the results.
“When this process is over, you come to a conclusion,” Mr. Blunt said. “There were some things done that shouldn’t have been done.”
