For a collaborative fundraising drive between the NRSC and Senators Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue, Rove is serving as national finance chair.
According to a source familiar with the project, Senate Republicans have appointed Karl Rove to direct their fundraising campaign for the Georgia runoff elections.
The National Republican Senatorial Committee established the Georgia Battleground Fund as a cooperative fundraising effort for Republican Senators Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue. The former George W. Bush aide will serve as the fund’s national finance chair. Which party will be in charge of the Senate on January 5 in Georgia will be decided by the runoff elections.
For both parties, the Georgia elections have taken on increased importance. Outside organizations have started to spend a lot, and potential presidential contenders like Florida senators Marco Rubio and Rick Scott are campaigning for the Republican candidates. Later this week, Vice President Mike Pence is scheduled to visit Georgia.
The parties will probably spend hundreds of millions of dollars in Georgia over the next two months, according to campaign participants. Pastor Raphael Warnock is Loeffler’s opponent, and documentary filmmaker Jon Ossoff is Perdue’s opponent.
Along with Rove, other prominent Republicans are participating in the fundraising drive. Chris Christie, a former governor of New Jersey, Dan Quayle, a former vice president, and Nikki Haley, a former UN representative, will serve as honorary co-chairs. Haley is viewed as a potential candidate for president in 2024.
National co-chairs will be Georgia political veteran Nick Ayers, who formerly served as Pence’s chief of staff, and seasoned Republican fundraisers Jeff Miller and Jack Oliver. Haley Barbour, a former governor of Mississippi, and Alec Poitevint, a former leader of the Georgia Republican Party, are both listed as national co-chairs.
Republican leaders would not reveal how much they planned to earn, but they did note that since the fund’s establishment last week, it has already received about a fifth of its entire objective. The fund was established by NRSC head Todd Young.
Georgia went narrowly for Joe Biden in the presidential race, marking the first time since 1992 that a Democrat won the state’s electoral votes. Although Georgia has historically supported the Republican party, a large number of people went out to vote against President Donald Trump in the state’s metropolitan and suburban districts. While Loeffler battled through a heated contest to the runoff, which featured a major Republican candidate, Rep. Doug Collins, Perdue fell short of the required 50 percent threshold to avoid one.
