• Blue Wave? Nice Surprise in House Races, GOP Retains Senate Control … Maybe?

    Surge Summary: The so-called Democratic “Blue Wave” has failed to materialize in the 2020 election so far. It looks like the GOP will retain control of the Senate, and Republicans made unexpected gains in the House of Representatives – although caution and vigilance is still warranted if these positive developments are not to fade away in the days ahead.

    The Senate results are clear evidence that there was no “blue wave” last night.  It appears as though we have maintained our majority in the Senate.

    As of now, two Republican incumbents – Cory Gardner (CO) and Martha McSally (AZ) – have been defeated, although McSally is refusing to concede.

    Offsetting their losses are Tommy Tuberville’s victory in Alabama and what we hope will be a victory by John James in Michigan, although James is now behind Democrat Gary Peters.

    Senators Collins (ME), Ernst (IA), Perdue (GA) and Tillis (NC) seem to have firm leads.

    Senators Cornyn (TX), Daines (MT), Graham (SC) and McConnell (KY) easily defeated their liberal challengers in spite of the unbelievable amounts of money that the left threw against them.

    As Lindsey Graham put it in his victory speech last night, the left’s record-breaking fundraising amounted to the “worst return on investment in the history of American politics.”

    There’s still one more race up for grabs.  Sen. Kelly Loeffler was forced into a January runoff with Democrat Raphael Warnock.

    Meanwhile, it also appears that we have picked up a handful of House seats.  The Atlanta Journal Constitution declared the Democrats’ House performance to be an “unexpected disappointment” given that many analysts were predicting gains of 10 to 15 seats for Nancy Pelosi’s party.

    But I also remember what happened in 2018 when it looked like our Election Day losses were minimal.  Days later they turned out to be major losses due to ballot harvesting.

    We will keep you posted as the results are finalized.
