Implications of Georgia Senate Races Loom Large

Republicans face a stiff challenge from Democrats … and also themselves.

Donald Trump and Joe Biden are facing off on the campaign stump once again today, this time in Georgia, which, you might have heard, is in the midst of two Senate runoff election races. Trump and Biden are holding rallies for the four respective candidates today. More than three million Georgians have already cast their ballots, and for good reason — there are huge stakes for years to come.

Much of the buzz coming into this week was President Trump’s weekend phone call with Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger. In the hour-long conversation, Trump pressured Raffensperger to “find 11,780 votes” to show that Trump really won the Peach State, though Raffensperger was having none of it. The sharp disagreement over how Georgia conducted the November election looms large.

But the point of this story is what’s at stake in the U.S. Senate.

GOP Senators David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler each failed to reach the requisite 50% of the vote in November, and thus they face Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock, respectively. Ossoff is an inheritance welfare liberal and Warnock a radical racist pastor who preaches a very different gospel than that put forth in either Scripture or by Martin Luther King, whose church Warnock pastors. Warnock’s is a gospel of socialism and hate, but in his ads he comes across as an all-too-likable and compassionate man who loves puppies (no kidding).

A victory for both of these Democrats would make New York Senator Chuck Schumer the majority leader, giving Democrats unified control of DC and the ability to force through their radical leftist agenda. That means Medicare for All, the Green New Deal, statehood for the Democrat strongholds of DC and Puerto Rico (meaning four more Democrat senators), and packing the Supreme Court are all on the line. That’s to say nothing of economy-hampering taxes and regulations to cap off a pandemic shutdown and gut any recovery.

As Louisiana Senator John Kennedy darkly joked in November, if Democrats win, “you’ve got nothing to worry about unless you are a taxpayer, a business owner, a parent, a cop, a gun owner, a person of faith, or an unborn baby.”

There’s also the not-so-small matter of having a Republican check on a thoroughly corrupt incoming Democrat regime. Want to get to the bottom of FBI abuse of power or the Biden family’s dealings with China? Forget about it with a Democrat Senate. Want moderation in judicial picks? It won’t happen. And Democrat committee chairmen, including Bernie Sanders, will be happy to run roughshod, as will the party as a whole if Democrats decide to nuke the legislative filibuster.

It certainly seems that Republicans are at grave risk tomorrow. Trump is both fueled by and fueling allegations of voter fraud in Georgia and elsewhere. A divided party could turn into a defeated party. The division is bad enough, but the defeat would be a big one — not just for Georgia, but for the entire nation.
