The two Georgia GOP incumbent Senators facing a tough January 5 runoff election, David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler, are getting help today from several low-level Republicans as part of the right wing Club for Growth's "Save America Bus Tour."
Former President Barack Obama and President-elect Joe Biden will both soon be traveling to Georgia to help get out the vote for Democrats Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock, who are in the January runoff elections against Perdue and Loeffler.
And while President Donald Trump campaigned for the two Georgia incumbents last week, as expected his rally was mostly a grievance session that focused little on motivating Georgia Republicans to vote.
The stakes could not be higher. If Ossoff and Warnock win, the U.S. Senate will effectively be split 50-50, allowing Vice President Kamala Harris to provide any tie-breaking votes, giving Democrats control of the Senate. And given Democrats already control the House, President Joe Biden would be free to unleash a progressive agenda while reversing as much of the Trump destruction as possible.
That's why it's comical that campaigning today for Senators Perdue and Loeffler are not GOP bigwigs, but castaways like former vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin, whose popularity has dropped so far she's rarely invited onto national television anymore.
Here's Palin on today's bus tour, attacking Democrats and calling for a "restoration" of America, despite Republicans having controlled the White House and the Senate for the past four years.

CNN Politics' DJ Judd is on the road covering today's "Save America" tour. He's posted some photos. Despite the Club for Growth claiming it will spend $10 million to help elect the two Republicans, it does not appear there's much of a turnout.

Joining them is former executive director of Pat Robertson's Christian Coalition, Ralph Reed, who was the target of a Federal Election Commission (FEC) enforcement action in the 1990's, and later linked to the Jack Abramoff corruption scandal.
Rounding out today's campaigning for Perdue and Loeffler is U.S, Rep. Jim Jordan, who still faces multiple allegations about his alleged role in the Ohio State sexual abuse claims against the team's physician, Richard Strauss.
