The battle is on for Georgia as the state takes center stage in the fight for the U.S. Senate in January.
Two runoff elections in the Peach State will play a heavy role to determine the balance of power in the nation’s capital.
Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) is licking his chops at the opportunity to radically transform America in the next legislative term.
Who else is seizing the opportunity to ‘change America?’
Many of the industry’s biggest names are digging into their pockets and throwing cash at Georgia’s Democratic Senate candidates to win each race.
Superstars such as Will Smith, George Clooney, Leonardo DiCaprio, Joaquin Phoenix, Mark Ruffalo, Jason Bateman, Mandy Moore, and Patricia Arquette have donated to Democratic candidates Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock.

Breitbart discussed the potential consequences of celebrity meddling and the Georgia Senate seats potentially flipping blue:
None of these stars lives in Georgia or hails for the Peach state, which could have a negative carpetbagging effect.
“Celebrities are extremely helpful, they do play a role. But they’re oftentimes not viewed as credible sources,” Laura Young, an assistant professor of political science at Georgia Gwinnett College, told The Hill.
“Particularly if you’re on the right end of the political spectrum, Hollywood elites are looked at as the liberal left, coming to Georgia and imposing their politics and their political views on individuals.”
Georgia’s runoffs are set to take place January 5. Republicans Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler are looking to defend their seats against the challengers. State Republicans are warning that if the Senate turns blue, Democrats will create open borders and give illegals aliens the right to vote.
“When the radicals say ‘change America,’ they mean: opening the border and allowing illegal immigrants voting,” Georgia Republicans tweeted.
The Hill also mentioned the potential pushback of celebrity influence in the Georgia runoff elections:
Hollywood also has Georgia on its mind.
“I will go to GA to help win these Senate seats. I will get a Covid test every day. I will live at Tyler Perry’s movie studio. I will get re-bar mitzvah’ed at whichever synagogue Jon Ossoff and his wife attend. We MUST win these Senate seats. I WILL DO WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE! U in?” actor Billy Eichner wrote to his more than 2 million social-media followers. The sentiment was echoed far and wide in Tinseltown. Atlanta is the new La-La-Lanta.
And all that should go over well with Georgia residents, right? They’ll be thrilled to see their state invaded by people who think Athens is a city one flies into when vacationing in the Greek Islands, have demanded that the Braves change the team’s insensitive name and think “The Dukes of Hazzard” is a racist show.
Not sure you’ve heard, but nationalizing state elections with tens of millions of dollars in out-of-state donations and Hollywood star-power has not gone well for Democrats. Ask Kentucky Democrat Amy McGrath, who fell to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) by 20 points. Ask Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) how she possibly could have won reelection despite polls showing her losing badly. Ask South Carolina Democrat Jaime Harrison how his race went against a reportedly vulnerable Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), who won in a runaway.
Democrats and Hollywood elitist snobs have already poured millions of dollars down the drain trying to snatch control of the Senate.
Expect them to try anything to pull off the victory.
