Georgia is ground zero in the battle for the balance of power in Washington, D.C., as control of the U.S. Senate now hinges on the outcome of the two Senate runoff races in the Peach State. With the Senate majority leadership within his reach, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) recently declared, “Now we take Georgia, and then we change America.”
Hollywood celebrities are leading the fundraising effort for Georgia Democrats, with the latest contribution coming from the cast of the long-running USA Network series Suits, which is holding a fundraiser to help flip the state and the U.S. Senate blue.
Actor Patrick J. Adams announced the virtual fundraiser, which is set for December 27, encouraging fans to help put an end to the “GOP’s chokehold on Congress.” On Suits, Adams plays the fake lawyer Mike Ross. The actor joked that his character could “still win any case against Trump’s legal team.”
Open (virtual) invite to join me & @SleepintheGardn for game night at our house. On 12/27 at 8pm ET, we’ll be co-hosting #SuitUpForGeorgia with our Suits family and some special guests to benefit Georgia voters.
