Noem said what happens on Tuesday and who Georgia elects to send to the Senate, has a lot of consequences for her people.

She wants people to know how important this election and voting are.

Noem said she’s concerned about what will happen on Election Day but excited about the opportunity for Perdue and Loeffler to continue to serve.

”The people of Georgia certainly love their freedom. I think this year, we’ve seen an unprecedented attack on our freedom in this country. Our freedom of religion, our freedom of speech and assembly in different states. We’ve seen that taken away in different ways. And, I think we need people in Washington D.C. to understand the importance of the Constitution. The opportunities that America provides and David and Kelly understand that,” said Noem.

She said it was important to come to Valdosta because it’s like home to her.

Noem is from a small town of farmers and ranchers.

And feels like here, they can have honest conversations with people who value the way of life.

Noem said she hopes voters step up and help defend America.
