Sen. Lindsey Graham Thursday announced he's sending $1 million from his campaign funds to the campaigns of Sens. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue to make sure they have resources to "combat a tsunami of liberal money about to sink Georgia" in the upcoming runoff elections that will determine which party will hold control of the Senate. 

"My opponent raised $145 million through the ActBlue giving app, where liberals all over America can send small donations in to Democratic candidates," the South Carolina Republican said on Fox News' "Fox and Friends." 

In addition to giving the candidates $1 million, Graham challenged his Republican colleagues in the House and the Senate to direct all donations coming in through their websites to the Georgia races. Graham said there is a link on his own website, lindseygraham.com, for donors to help with the Georgia race. 

"If we don't come back and combat ActBlue, we're in trouble," said Graham. "ActBlue raised $1.5 billion in the last three months. We've got to get better. I've got 2 million donors. I'm going to ask my donors to help Georgia, and I would encourage every other Republican just don't go to Georgia, give to Georgia."

The election, he added, will mean "everything about the structure of your nation," said Graham. 

"There would be 13 people on the Supreme Court because they need to expand it to make it liberal," he said. "The Electoral College would be changed so that New York and California pick the president ... what we're trying to do is stop the most radical agenda in the history of American politics from being enacted, and Georgia stands in the way of socialism in America."

Graham added that if Republicans keep control of the Senate, he'll be the budget chairman, but if Democrats take over, Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., will be the budget chairman, and that's "about as big a difference as you can think of."
