Just when you thought that the 2020 was weird, and the 2020 Presidential election was a time bomb, and the state of Georgia was a battleground, everything just got far more intense and strange.
Ahead of President Donald J. Trump going down to Valdosta Georgia, a town in the deep southern part of the state near the Florida and Georgia line on Saturday to support Republican candidates, the tragic news hit social media that a staffer for the Republican who faces a runoff challenge in early January 2021 was killed in an accident on Friday.
Republican Kelly Loeffler’s campaign office issued a statement, that Harrison Deal was killed.

Republican doug Collins made the announcement today to a crowd of Republicans.
Loeffler also posted on Twitter:
“It is with an extremely heavy heart that we mourn the loss of Harrison Deal. My heart aches for his family, and Jeff and I will continue to surround them in love and prayer in the days ahead. Harrison was a beloved member of our campaign team.
More importantly, Harrison was a smart, bright, loving, loyal and outstanding young man. Harrison embodied the very best of this campaign – and the very best of our state.
We will forever cherish and honor Harrison’s memory, and I ask every Georgian to join us in praying for his family during this difficult time'” Loeffler wrote.
A “Protect the Majority” rally was held on Friday to by the GOP to rally voters to support Loeffler in the upcoming run-off, but at odds are Trump supporters who are upset that the party is not doing enough in their opinions to protect the last vote they took in November and are revolting against the state calls a special session to look at Voter Integrity issues.
Here is video footage from the rally where Loeffler was expected to attend today:
