Not to add or pile on the angst and heartburn of the 2020 election, but I think some of you don’t quite have enough to worry about. So let me help out. That’s what I’m here for.
With a Biden/Harris presidency looking like a possibility, the only safeguards that will be in place are the courts; not just SCOTUS, but many Trump appointed federal judgeships. That’s good. That’s a win, and its already in place. The other safeguard is the Senate, where people are naively thinking we have the majority sewn up.
Well, let me burst your confidence bubble.
Georgia has BOTH senate elections as special elections Jan 5, 2021. The 2020 United States Senate special election in Georgia is because Senator Johnny Isakson’s resignation is effective December 31, 2019. Governor Brian Kemp appointed Kelly Loeffler to serve as Isakson’s replacement, effective January 6, 2020, until the special election. Per Georgia law, a special general election will take place on the same day as the regularly scheduled U.S. Senate election for the seat held by David Perdue.
Should Republicans win one or both of those elections, we’ll have a GOP Senate majority to counter the deadly effects of what’s looking more and more like a Joe & the Ho presidency. If the GOP fails in both races and ‘Dementia Joe’ wins, the Senate would have 50 Demonrats, 50 Republicans, and Vice President Kamala “Heels Up” Harris breaking any ties.
So while you polish off your emergency prepper supply of Costco bourbon because of a bad Tuesday night, just remember that a double-loss for the GOP Georgia Senate race would put that ‘ugly dog-faced pony soldier’ Biden into the Oval Office with majorities in both the House and Senate, allowing for all sorts of useless social programs, “common sense” gun laws leading up to confiscation, the undoing of middle east diplomacy, court packing, and Tony Montana living next to you asking “say hello to my little friend”.
