United States Senator Kelly Loeffler's latest coronavirus test came back negative, but her campaign said Sunday she will continue to quarantine at least until she gets another negative result.

President Trump's Attorney has suggested to voters in Georgia, where two Senate runoff elections are due to take place in January, they should hold off voting for two Republican Senators until they are seen to be doing more to help the president fight to overturn the 2020 election result.

"Senator Loeffler's previously inconclusive PCR results were retested overnight and the results thankfully came back negative", campaign spokesperson Stephen Lawson said in a statement to CNN.

The statement says she received another test Friday evening and the results came back positive. Loeffler remains asymptotic and will remain in quarantine until receiving conclusive test results, Lawson added. Loeffler has been tacking ever further to the right in her effort to pick up those who voted for Trump-endorsed Collins, while Perdue has always been one of Trump's staunchest allies in the Senate.

Minimizing time away from the campaign trail is crucial not just to Loeffler and Perdue, but to the Republican Party as a whole. However, Loeffler's PCR test on Friday were positive for COVID-19, which came after she attended public events that day, according to Lawson.

"We called for the resignation of our secretary of state", Perdue said at event at a shooting range. Perdue, 70, is now isolating at home following Loeffler's positive test, a campaign spokeswoman told CNN on Sunday. They should be counted for me, too.

Loeffler is facing Democrat Raphael Warnock in a January 5 runoff election - one of two races that will determine which party has control of the Senate.

Perdue, 70, faces Democrat Jon Ossoff, a 33-year-old investigative journalist, whom he edged out on November 3 by a 49.7% to 47.9% margin, below the 50% threshold needed to avoid a runoff.

Loeffler and Perdue have spent the past few weeks rallying support across the state, often at events together, as they seek to keep the Senate under Republican control.
