The Georgia Senate Runoff Races

The November 3 election results preserved Republican hopes of converting the U.S. into a one-party- (theirs) governed country.  Unless the two Democratic candidates can win the special election on January 5th, the Mitch McConnell-led U.S. senate will block progressive legislation and probably key judicial appointments, because McConnell’s primary aim is to make the Biden administration look weak and ineffective.

Normally, there would be no chance that Georgians would elect two Democratic senators, but the two Republican candidates are both appalling character even by the standards of their own morally derelict party, and some Republican voters won’t bother going to the polls because Trump has told them that elections are rigged. 

I’ll still be surprised if even one of the Democratic candidates wins,.
