Trump tells supporters to 'watch what happens' in Georgia

Trump, who held a rally to support Republican senate candidates warned of dire consequences if Democrats won the two contested seats and gained the majority in the U.S. Senate.

The Georgia races pit a pair of incumbent Republicans, Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue, against Democratic challengers Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff, respectively. None of the Senate candidates won a majority in the Nov. 3 election, which spurred the runoff elections.

Trump continues to assert, without evidence, that his loss in November was the result of widespread voter fraud - a claim that reviews by state and federal election officials, multiple courts and the U.S. Department of Justice have rejected.

In a call on Saturday (January 02) to Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, Trump pressured the Republican official to "find" enough votes to overturn his defeat, and suggested Raffensperger's failure to alter the November results could hurt Republican turnout in the Senate runoffs.
