People in Georgia, like those in most of the country, don't want to be represented by senators with a socialist agenda, Sen. Rick Scott, who as chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee is concentrating efforts on the state's upcoming runoff race for the Senate, said Friday.
"Georgians are like Floridians, actually most of the country," the Florida Republican said on Fox News' "Fox & Friends." "We like the life we have. We don't want higher taxes. We don't want people to take away our religious freedom and Second Amendment rights. We like the police. We like law enforcement. We like public safety."
But Democrats don't want to do what the United States wants because "America doesn't want socialism," said Scott. "I mean, look at Miami. We picked up two House seats. Probably the biggest issue was the idea that Americans want socialism. We don't. We want capitalism and free markets. Give me a chance at a dream."
Scott this week released an ad for Georgia pointing out Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer's recent comments about taking over the state and then the world and country.
"[This] means for the Democrats to pack the Supreme Court so they can take away our religious freedom and Second Amendment rights," said Scott. "Socialism, 'Medicare for All' is going to kill private healthcare insurance for 150 million Americans, and the Green New Deal will kill fossil fuels and our economy ... this is crazy."
The Georgia runoff elections will pit Republican Sen. David Perdue against Democrat challenger Jon Ossoff and GOP Sen. Kelly Loeffler against Democrat Rev. Raphael Warnock. If the Democrats win in both races, that would create a tied Senate, with Kamala Harris in place as vice president to cast tiebreaker votes if Joe Biden's election is confirmed.
