More than 1.3 million people have already cast their early votes ahead of the runoff election for Georgia’s senators on January 5th, a day that will define which party will take control of the Senate and what the Democratic agenda for the country will be.
This is a high number of early votes that could be due to a nationalized campaign that reflects the importance of these elections.
According to Fox News, the high number of voters is not only due to the importance of the election, but it would also be related to a population explosion in Georgia with at least one million new voters taking up residence in the state in the last four years.
There are almost 8 million registered voters in Georgia, and 5 million voted in the presidential election.
The Republican campaign has turned out to urge millions of voters to participate in the election despite concerns about irregularities. In fact, Donald Trump Jr. wrote an article calling on citizens to exercise their vote to prevent “radical liberal policies from becoming law.”
“Defend America First’s agenda: defend everything my father fights for,” he says.
“A Democrat majority in the Senate will work to dismantle everything we have fought so hard for. The Democrats will immediately abolish the filibuster rule, allowing them to pass whatever far-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 from getting passed by Congress,” he added.
Trump’s son recalled the Democrat policies that will abolish all efforts in which his father was invested. He said the future of the economy, security, energy, health and the future of American justice will be defined by this election. “Senators Loeffler and Perdue will vote against this failed and backward policy,” he said.
Georgia: “Warnock would obstruct the American dream”
Republican Senator Marco Rubio also joined the Republican campaign for Georgia and “stripped” the profile of Democratic candidate Raphael Warnock in an article.
“Democrat Raphael Warnock is the most radically liberal candidate in the country. He would vote in unison with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, DN.Y., to eliminate Senate resistance, fill the U.S. Supreme Court, raise taxes on families and small businesses by billions of dollars, decimate families and farmers with the Green New Deal, socialize their health care, shut down the economy, and use technology companies as weapons to silence dissent,” Rubio said.
The senator recalled that Warnock has come to praise Marxism and socialism while criticizing capitalism.
“Warnock was once again exposed as a liar when newly discovered images revealed that, after Castro’s death, Warnock praised his legacy as ‘complex’ and compared the United States to Communist Cuba,” the Republican senator added in his writing.
If the Republicans win only one of the two races they would keep the chamber, but if the Democrats get both seats, then they would control both houses of Congress and the White House.
The intention is to get everyone out to vote to prevent the Democrats from winning a majority; the race now is to get voters confident in the elections that will set a definitive course for the country.
Georgia: the struggle to prevent the left from taking control
Democrats are pinning their hopes on Georgia to define the role they will play in the Senate. The race for that state is the Republicans’ chance to curb and control the initiatives of the radical left.
In fact, if the Democrats succeed in winning Georgia’s Senate seats, regulations such as gun control could become a reality, especially if Kamala Harris were to break a tie in the Senate.
Republicans have controlled the upper house for the past two cycles, limiting Barack Obama’s agenda and pushing Donald Trump’s. On these elections will depend then the freedom of action of the next president of the United States to carry out his agenda.
