Runoff In Georgia Senate Election Now The Key

Control of the Senate is looking to come down to the two seats in Georgia.

Barring some amazing upset in a recount in Michigan for John James, or something going truly upside down in Alaska for Dan Sullivan, Georgia is going to be the tipping point for control of the Senate.

And Chuck Schumer – while out partying in the streets without a mask on – knows it.

If Joe Biden is certified in December, then the Senate must be the firewall against the “mandate” that Nancy Pelosi (D-Jeni’s Ice Cream) and Chuck Schumer think that they will be able to push. “Change the world,” indeed.

Those ads are pretty much writing themselves for David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler.

The Georgia runoff election is scheduled for January 5th. By then, we will definitely know the outcome of the election. We might not like the results, but we will know who will be inaugurated on January 20th. Now, this runoff in Georgia is sure to pull a lot of eyes across the nation, but will both sides be motivated to vote in the exact same way that they did for a presidential election? Well, it depends on the motivation.

Chuck Schumer promising to “change the world” is a good motivator for Republicans to go vote.

AOC spouting off is a good motivator for Republicans to go vote – remember, Chuck Schumer is deathly afraid of being primaried by AOC. So he is keeping his enemies closer by making sure she gets camera time with him when needed and their interests are aligned.

Can Democrats get out the vote in the Atlanta area the same way they did in the presidential election? Anything is possible. Georgia isn’t even technically finished counting all their votes yet, so David Perdue could possibly escape a runoff if enough of the outstanding votes break his way. However, it is looking more and more likely that both races are in runoff territory, though Perdue is juuuuuuuust shy of that 50% mark. Loeffler was contending with a multi-candidate special election that had truly narrowed between herself, Democrat Raphael Warnock, and Republican Doug Collins. Warnock may hold the lead at the moment, but Collins has already conceded to Loeffler, which means that his votes will mostly transfer to her. And without multiple other names on the ballot, the odds are looking much better for Loeffler.

However, we cannot – CAN NOT – take these Senate seats for granted in Georgia. The Democrats want this. They want this because if Biden is president, there will be nothing stopping them from shoving down court-packing and ending the filibuster down the throats of the American public. Schumer himself has said that “nothing is off the table” if the Democrats get control of the Senate.

Trump is not on the ballot in Georgia in this Senate runoff. Chuck Schumer is. Get ready to make a stand.

    If they go to a run-off in January, there will be plenty of time beforehand for them to “find” enough ballots to make it blue.
