The future of the United States is in the hands of the voters in Georgia who will define who will control the Senate.
“Something like this has never happened before and will probably never happen again,” Charles Bullock, a political scientist at the University of Georgia, told Bloomberg. “Two seats, from one state, in one election, will decide who controls the Senate. It is unprecedented.”
“Georgia’s voters are literally our nation’s last line of defense in protecting this legacy,” Republican Senator Marco Rubio said in a Fox News article.
Rubio noted that Georgia’s runoff election has far greater implications than a conventional election.
“If Democratic Senate candidates Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff are elected on January 5, the Democrats’ imminent socialist assault on our nation will make President Obama’s first two years in office look moderate by comparison,” Rubio said.
The Republican senator recalled that with a Democratic-controlled Congress, Obama had free rein to “create liberal laws, nominate radicals to critical executive positions, and enact progressive regulations that hurt the economy and workers.”
Georgia will define if the US opens the door for a socialist agenda
“If the Democrats are successful in Georgia’s runoff election on Tuesday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer will have the power to enact the socialist agenda of the radical left that has become the mainstream of today’s Democratic Party,” Rubio added.
The Republican senator predicts that if control of the Senate is won by the Democrats, socialist initiatives like the “Green New Deal, socialized medicine, European-style taxes on U.S. industry and workers, radical regulations that will harm small businesses, and capitulation to the Chinese Communist Party will be on the agenda.”
“On January 5, the whole nation will be watching. If Georgians believe in our democracy and our nation’s institutions, they will reject Warnock and Ossoff. And in doing so, they will give Senate Republicans the power to prevent the socialist attack that the radical left is actively planning,” he said.
Republicans need to win only one of the two seats to maintain control of the Senate. The Democrats need to win both so they have a 50-50 split in the Senate that would make Vice President-elect Kamala Harris, as Senate president, the deciding vote.
If one or both sitting Republican senators, David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler, win on Tuesday, their party would retain a majority, giving Republicans the ability to block Biden’s more ambitious goals.
Three million voters have already cast their ballots, which is a record for a runoff in Georgia. The total number of early votes for the general election was 3.6 million.
Given the crucial importance of this election, both President Donald Trump and President-elect Joe Biden are expected to demonstrate in support of their respective party’s candidates on Monday, January 4.
Republicanos focused on winning
The Republican campaign has turned to urge millions of voters to participate in the elections despite doubts about irregularities. In fact, Donald Trump Jr. released a radio ad calling on citizens to exercise their vote to prevent “radical liberal policies from becoming law.”
“A Democratic majority in the Senate will work to dismantle everything we have fought so hard for. The Democrats will immediately abolish filibustering, allowing them to pass whatever extreme left policies they want with a simple majority vote,” Trump said.
“My friends Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue are the only thing standing between dangerous liberal policies that kill jobs and hurt Georgian workers so they don’t get passed by Congress,” he added.
Trump’s son recalled the Democratic policies that will abolish all of his father’s efforts. He said this election would define the future of the economy, security, energy, health, and the future of American justice. “Senators Loeffler and Perdue will vote against this failed and outdated policy,” he said.
