Georgia On My Mind

There has been lots of coverage and speculation over the run-off election in the state of Georgia……it is all about control……

As of this writing one race is too close to call and the other seems like the Dem has won…..

The Associated Press and other outlets called one of the two Senate runoff races in Georgia: Democrat Raphael Warnock beat incumbent Kelly Loeffler, becoming the first Black senator Georgia has ever elected. Democrats must also win the other race, which remained too close to call as of the time of this posting, in order to win control of the chamber. As ballots were being counted, President Trump and his allies were on Twitter making familiar claims. Specifically, that a scheme was underway to, yes, steal the election. “Looks like they are setting up a big ‘voter dump’ against the Republican candidates. Waiting to see how many votes they need?” Trump himself mused. Others in the GOP had similar takes: “Democrats scrounging up votes from mystical places again….,” tweeted Tomi Lahren, while Kayleigh McEnany wondered, “Why are they stopping the vote count in Democrat Chatham county, Georgia? This sounds familiar!”

Trump’s take on the evening had the New York Times‘ numbers guy, Nate Cohn, replying: “DeKalb County (and all Georgia counties) posted the exact number of in-person early votes long before election day. They even posted their names, addresses, etc.” Trump was also tweeting about his own, ostensibly lost, race: “If Vice President @Mike_Pence comes through for us, we will win the Presidency. Many States want to decertify the mistake they made in certifying incorrect & even fraudulent numbers in a process NOT approved by their State Legislatures (which it must be). Mike can send it back!” Meanwhile, observers of the runoff were tentatively noting things also looked good for Democrat Jon Ossoff, though all the votes are not expected to be counted until later Wednesday. Decision Desk HQ had called the race for him in the wee hours of Wednesday, but no other outlets had as of this posting.

Osoff is creeping ahead of Perdue as of this writing.

I await the comments from Donald the Orange and his mindless supporters.

This is gonna be EPIC!
