It's important for Republicans to vote in Georgia's upcoming Senate runoff elections because "Georgia is the firewall to socialism," incumbent GOP Sen. Kelly Loeffler, who is running against Democrat challenger Raphael Warnock, insisted Monday. 

"Early voting starts today here in Georgia," said the Georgia Republican on Fox News' "Fox & Friends." "I'm urging all voters to get out, take President [Donald] Trump's lead, get out and vote today for David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler ... we have to hold the line here, not just for Georgia but the entire future of the country rests on these races and we have to hold the Senate majority."

Democrats have already requested 1.2 million absentee ballots in the race, according to former gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, but Loeffler said Republicans have built a "robust organization" to ensure voters have confidence in the elections. 

"We've called on the secretary of state to do a signature audit," said Loeffler. "What we're doing is making sure that we have more signature verification. We're in the courts right now fighting for that."

Republicans have also brought in 4,000 additional poll watchers, she said, because "it's so important that only legal votes are counted and that all illegal votes are thrown out."

A call has also been made for Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to release names of people who have recently registered to vote because "we need to understand who's coming in to vote," said Loeffler. 

She also slammed stars like Julia Louis-Dreyfus, John Legend, Kerry Washington, and others for their support of the Democrat candidates in the Georgia races. 

"Democrats have blocked relief time and again for hardworking families and Hollywood is as out of touch as the liberals in Washington are," said Loeffler.
