Lifelong Democrat and Georgia state Rep. Vernon Jones is sounding the alarm and begging voters not to allow Democrats to win back the U.S. Senate.
During an interview with The Blaze’s Glenn Beck, Jones said it’s crucial that Republicans win Georgia’s two Senate seats “if we want America as we know it to continue.”
“If the Senate goes, this country goes,” he told Beck.
Jones explained why he believes Georgia is the last line in the fight for freedom and that left-wing policy will destroy this country.
“I believe with all my might that we understand, here in Georgia, that we have to do what’s best for this country,” he said. “And I’m surprised that Republicans, the Republican leadership throughout Georgia, hasn’t stood up taller and stronger in an effort to make sure that we … help Senator Perdue (R) and Senator Loeffler (R) get re-elected, so there will be a balance of power in Washington, D.C. Or else this country will be destroyed over the next four years.”
“I didn’t leave my party; my party left me,” he told Glenn.
Jones sent shockwaves earlier this year when he bucked his own party and endorsed President Donald Trump’s re-election bid.
And he left his own party after being attack for doing so.
“I’m sick and tired of me and my family being attacked and harassed by the Democrat Party for putting my country before my party,” he wrote in a press release. “My First Amendment right to freedom of speech is under siege.
“I intend to help the Democratic Party get rid of its bigotry against black people that are independent and conservative. I endorsed the white guy (Donald J. Trump) that let blacks out of jail, and they endorsed the white guy (Joe Biden) that put Blacks in jail,” he said.
“We will Make America Great Again,” he said.
Jones said he endorsed the president because of his record on helping black people, military veterans, and farmers with his policies.
“It’s very simple to me. President Trump’s handling of the economy, his support for historically black colleges, and his criminal justice initiatives drew me to endorse his campaign,” Jones said.
“This is not about switching parties. There are a lot of African Americans who clearly see and appreciate he’s doing something that’s never been done before,” he added. “When you look at the unemployment rates among black Americans before the pandemic, they were at historic lows. That’s just a fact.”
