The GOP won the White House for 4 years, but at what cost? Republican lawmakers quickly learned that crossing Trump meant angering his base, and could get you primaried. And so they fell in line.

Now that base is the lifeblood of the party. And with Trump's refusal to accept the 2020 election results, it's causing the GOP to eat itself alive.

Republican officials in key swing states have insisted on doing their jobs and certifying the results. Millions of Americans that voted for Trump see this as a betrayal, as the majority of them believe that Biden did not legitimately win the presidency. Sydeny Powell has even suggested that the governor and secretary of state in Georgia might have been paid off by Democrats to help steal the election.

Senators Loeffler and Perdue are in an absolutely brutal spot. With runoffs looming, they have to choose between incurring the wrath of Trump's base or playing along with the conspiracy that communists and mexicans hacked the election. They chose the former and made a joint statement joint statement saying the election was rigged and demanding the Georgia SoS resign.
