Vice President Mike Pence will be in Canton on Friday to kick off a bus tour in support of incumbent Republican Sens. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue.

According to a statement from the Georgia Republican Party, Pence will appear at 12:30 p.m. Friday at the Cherokee County government administration and conference center, 1130 Bluffs Parkway in Canton.

The event is being billed as the "Defend the Majority Rally," because Republicans hold the majority in the U.S. Senate and will continue to if Georgia re-elects its two Republican senators.

Loeffler is facing Democrat Raphael Warnock in a runoff Jan. 5 of the special election to fill the remainder of former Sen. Johnny Isakson's term. Loeffler has filled it since January after Isakson resigned for health reasons. Perdue is also facing a runoff with Democrat Jon Ossoff.

Following the rally in Canton, Pence is scheduled to travel to Gainesville for a rally there.
