• Georgia On Our – and Everyone Else’s – Mind: History-Making Senate Races Loom

    Surge Summary: The battle for two outstanding Senate seats in the state of Georgia is ramping up. Both Democratic candidates are radical Leftists. The stakes of these races are potentially gargantuan – particularly if Joe Biden ends up being sworn in as president on January 20, 2021.

    Georgia’s secretary of state announced Wednesday that his state will conduct a hand recount of all ballots cast in the presidential race in the state. While I agree with a hand recount, it really doesn’t get to the heart of the problem. The concern is not that the votes were miscounted but that the votes being counted may be illegitimate.

    For example, if a mail-in ballot is in an envelope that arrives after the deadline, the envelope was likely disposed of by ballot counters in cities such as Philadelphia, Milwaukee and Atlanta.

    But in the meantime, Georgia will determine whether Republicans retain a slim majority in the U.S. Senate and will be able to block the worst plans of Nancy Pelosi and the increasingly radicalized Democratic Party. Both Senate races there will be decided by runoff elections in January.

    The two Republican senators in Georgia have radical opponents. One is Raphael Warnock, who has a record of radicalism that he doesn’t hide from. Warnock once hosted Cuban dictator Fidel Castro to speak at his church.

    Warnock is also a fan of Jeremiah Wright. If that name sounds familiar it’s because Wright was Barack Obama’s pastor and mentor in Chicago. But even Obama knew to run for cover and disassociate from Wright when the pastor’s sermon declaring that the U.S. got what it deserved on 9-11 became public. Warnock hasn’t run from Wright; in fact, he’s defended Wright’s outrageous comments.

    The Democrat running for the other seat is Jon Ossoff, who’s just as dangerous. Ossoff supports open borders, socialized medicine, the Green New Deal and defunding the police.

    If both Republican incumbents lose, the Senate will be 50-50 and whoever is vice president will break the tie on incredibly important matters, including the rules of the Senate, Second Amendment rights, religious liberty and on and on.

    If even one of the Republican incumbents loses, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will have a one-vote margin in the Senate and be at the mercies of people like Mitt Romney and Lisa Murkowski, and we all know what that’ll mean.

    The Left is pouring all of their resources into these two runoff campaigns. Some Democrats and liberal pundits are even encouraging liberals to move to Georgia in order to vote there and sway the outcome of those races. That may not be legal, but it’s an indication of just how much the left wants this. They know that if they get control of Senate, they may be able to enact the most radical parts of their agenda.

    Like everyone else, we at Campaign for Working Families are weary after a long campaign season. But we plan to do everything we can to retain those two Senate seats, including making a six-figure outlay from our Super PAC, Campaign for American Values, and from our regular PAC, Campaign for Working Families.
