Georgia's GOP lieutenant governor rules out Senate run but says 'Trump's divisive tone and strategy is unwinnable' for the future of the Republican party
  • Geoff Duncan, the lieutenant governor of Georgia, called Trump's strategy "unwinnable" going forward.
  • Duncan, a Republican, on Sunday said he wouldn't run for US Senate in 2022.
  • Trump lashed out at members of the Georgia GOP for refusing to help him overturn the election.
"Republicans don't need election reform to win, we need leadership," Duncan said during an appearance on NBC's "Meet the Press" Sunday. "I think there's millions of Republicans waking up around the country that are realizing that Donald Trump's divisive tone and strategy is unwinnable in forward-looking elections.

"We need real leadership, we need new focus, a GOP 2.0 that includes moderates in the middle, to get us to the next election cycle," he added.

Duncan said Trump's refusal to concede the election and continued spread of unfounded conspiracy theories about the election did damage to the GOP.

"It hurt Republicans in any sort of conversation around election reform," he said. "We lost credibility. Those were 10 weeks that we can't take back. January 6th was a pivot point for this country and for this party. And, look, we've got four years to win back the White House. We're not going to do it with a divisive tone."
