The president's daughter and the incumbent Republican senators were originally slated to take part in a campaign rally in Walton County, Georgia, on Monday, as well as make an appearance in Suwanee. Perdue and Loeffler also rescheduled their appearances, though they are expected to head to Washington for the COVID-19 relief vote. 


Despite cancellations from the headliners, a spokesperson from the Georgia Republican Party told the Walton Tribune that the Monday rally would continue. 

Ivanka Trump was also scheduled to take part in a fireside chat with Loeffler and Perdue in Suwanee.
