Donald Trump Jr. will campaign for incumbent Republican Sen. David Perdue (R-Ga.) in Georgia this weekend ahead of the Senate runoffs next month. 

President Trump’s eldest son will hold a “Defend the Majority” rally with Perdue on Friday in Irwin County, in addition to holding events with the incumbent senator in Bulloch and Catoosa counties on Saturday. 

The president’s eldest daughter, Ivanka Trump, is also set to campaign in Georgia on Monday with Perdue and Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-Ga.). She is set to make appearances in Milton, Suwanee and Walton County. 

The Trumps’ visits to the Peach State come weeks before Loeffler takes on Democrat Raphael Warnock and Perdue faces off against Democrat Jon Ossoff in Georgia’s runoff elections on Jan. 5. 

Surrogates from both parties have been making the rounds in the state with Vice President Pence and President-elect Joe Biden making visits this week. Vice president-elect Kamala Harris will travel to Georgia on Monday to campaign for Warnock and Ossoff. 

The races, which will determine control of the Senate, are tightening in recent polls. 

Perdue currently leads Ossoff by 0.8 percent in FiveThirtyEight’s polling average, while Warnock is running even with Loeffler.
