Andrew Yang Encourages Liberals to Move to Georgia to Help Dems Win the Senate

'Election officials are going to pay attention to what is happening...'

Former Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang encouraged liberals to move to Georgia to help Democrats win the two expected Senate run-off elections in January.

Control of the Senate will be determined by Georgia’s two Senate elections, and Yang argued that this is “our only chance to clear [Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell] out of the way and help Joe and Kamala get things done in the next four years.”

The two races pit Republican incumbents David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler vs. Democrats Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock, respectively.

Yang’s announcement raises questions about whether Democrats plan to exploit Georgia’s lenient election laws to boost their candidates’ chances.

Georgia does not specify a minimum residency requirement for voting, unlike most states, which means any legal permanent resident of Georgia would be able to participate in the runoff elections so long as they register to vote by Dec. 7.

That means moving to Georgia to participate in the runoff elections is technically legal.

However, Enrijeta Shino, a professor at the University of North Florida, told the Wall Street Journal that this practice could constitute fraud if legally challenged.

“People should be very careful about doing that,” Shino warned. “These are sensitive issues, and election officials are going to pay attention to what is happening.”
