Early voting has been going on for over a week, but today is officially Election Day in the Senate runoff in Georgia between Herschel Walker and Sen. Raphael Warnock. Most polls show Warnock with a slight lead within the margin of error, and record early voting is considered a good sign for Democrats. I fear that too many Republicans think this race doesn’t matter, since Democrats already have 50 votes in the Senate and Kamala Harris as a tie-breaker. But in fact, it will make a big difference, as this article explains.
With a 50-50 tie, both parties share power on committees, and the Democrats have to deal with centrist swing vote Joe Manchin, which at least puts some brakes on their more radical ambitions (Yes, I know that Manchin caved, but maybe he’ll be less likely to get rolled again now that he’s been stabbed in the back, as I predicted he would be.)
With 51 votes, Chuck Schumer controls the committees. Even though the GOP House won’t be sending any more far-left bills, anything that’s handled entirely in the Senate, like approving Biden’s radical nominees, will be much easier for the Dems to pass. Many of those nominees will be swinging pickaxes at the foundations of America and making our lives miserable for the rest of their lives.
Republicans who didn’t show up to vote in 2020 in Georgia gave us the 50-50 Senate, and look how much damage Democrats have done to America just with that. I implore them, do NOT let it happen again. You can’t prevent the continuation of that 50-50 Senate, but you can save America from having to deal with an even more empowered group of radical leftists. Your nation – at least the part of it that thinks and works and cares about America's future – is counting on you.
