    Donald Trump’s plan to campaign in Georgia for two Republican candidates for the U.S. Senate has sparked concern within the party that the president’s efforts could backfire, jeopardizing their bid to keep a majority in the upper chamber.

    Several GOP figures have raised alarm before Trump’s expected visit to Valdosta on Saturday evening for a rally with Senators David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler — both of whom face Jan. 5 run-off elections that will determine which party controls the Senate.

    Ahead of his trip, Trump has repeatedly alleged — without offering evidence — that widespread fraud cost him victories in Georgia and other key states in his Nov. 3 loss to Joe Biden. He has disparaged the state’s most prominent Republicans, including Governor Brian Kemp, who has been a staunch ally of the president.

    Republicans fear the president’s efforts to undermine Georgia’s vote could divide the party and suppress votes for Perdue and Loeffler.

    “He needs to come here and be in positive mode. And the positive mode needs to be all about the importance of the election of these two folks to the Senate,” former GOP Senator Saxby Chambliss of Georgia said in an interview.

    Some of Trump’s most fervent loyalists have urged his supporters against voting in the runoff because they say the state’s election system is broken beyond repair. Pro-Trump attorneys Sidney Powell and Lin Wood said Wednesday that Georgians should not vote until they can be sure their ballots are “secure.”
