Duncan referred to the late Southern rocker Charlie Daniels’ song “The Devil Went Down to Georgia” ahead of Trump’s rally in the state this weekend.
Duncan strongly supports a conservative agenda and is not happy with the Biden administration. The Republican state official shrugged off a list of current problems: a legislative agenda stalled by debate over an infrastructure package, a “real crisis” at the southern border, a confused federal response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Duncan insisted that the GOP could make big inroads in the 2022 midterm elections, but he also acknowledged: “My Republican Party is not out of the woods.”
“This weekend, former President Trump is hosting a rally in my neck of the woods,” Duncan wrote. Then, incensing the devil, he added: “If great Southern rocker Charlie Daniels were still with us today, his hit song could be rewritten as, ‘A president went down to Georgia; he’s going to steal. Was looking for the soul of a party.'”
The Song of Daniels tells the story of a devil who is desperate to collect souls in Georgia. But Satan in a deal with an extraordinary musician loses the fiddle-playing contest and does not win his soul.
As for Trump, he “continues to be painfully comfortable dispelling his baseless conspiracy theories of widespread election fraud. Last week, he fired a disjointed and juvenile letters Georgia for Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger Duncan wrote, “asked to ‘unsubstantiate’ the results of the election.”
If “we’re all honest with each other, Trump didn’t lose because of voter fraud or his conservative policies. Biden is sitting in the White House today because voters are tired.” Trump’s erratic behavior, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic,” he said.
When Trump “comes to Georgia this weekend, expect him to re-package his ‘greatest hits,’ and once again hijack our great state for his selfish agenda,” said Duncan. warned. “It might make for good theatre, but it’s setting the conservative movement back.”
