If Saturday’s Floyd County Republican rally at Richard B. Russell Regional Airport was a barometer for the 2020 election season, the GOP believes there is a real clear and present danger to America’s core values in the form of a socialist bent to the other side of the political aisle.
Long before Georgia GOP State Chairman David Schafer called the 2018 election “the most consequential election in our lifetime,” speaker after speaker railed against the threat of socialism espoused by several of the leading Democratic candidates for president.
“The road to socialism will not run through the state of Georgia,” said U.S. Sen. David Perdue, who spurred the crowd of more than 450 party faithful to one round of applause after another during his brief speech.
