A CNN reporter and his team on Wednesday abandoned a “Save Our Majority” rally in Georgia with Republican Sen. Marco Rubio and Kelly Loeffler, citing concerns over the coronavirus as the liberal network fled the scene.
CNN Senior National Correspondent Kyung Lah first tweeted footage of the event, noting that many attendees were “maskless” in a windowless room. She then tweeted footage of the crowded crowd waiting outside as many people were told there were too many people to let someone else inside. Lah and his crew then went their separate ways, saying it was “not safe” given the coronavirus cases in Georgia.

The “Save Our Majority” rally was to promote the GOP in the upcoming second-round elections in the two state Senate showdowns. with Senate control up for grabs, these two elections will determine whether the GOP retains its majority in the chamber or whether Democrats control both houses of Congress and the White House.
Outside parties and groups are expected to invest huge sums of money and resources in these two races ahead of the January 5 elections.
In Georgia, where state law dictates a run-off if no candidate gets 50 percent of the vote, Republican Senator David Perdue narrowly missed a run-off. It currently sits at 49.75% of the tally, with almost all votes counted. His Democratic challenger, Jon Ossoff, trails by around 90,000 votes.
