As the election battle rages, many are looking at the fate of Congress.
It’s clear that Democrats lost big in the House, but a few races in the Senate are yet to be decided.
Democrats won a few seats from Republicans, it appears. But Republicans won at least one new seat.
But the majority boils down to two races that might shake out all the way in January, in a traditionally red state:
Control of the Senate is boiling down to Georgia, likely dragging the fight for the majority out until early January…
Democrats know they will have a chance to win one race in a runoff on Jan. 5, when GOP Sen. Kelly Loeffler will face Democratic nominee Raphael Warnock.
Sen. David Perdue (R-Ga.) on Thursday also fell below 50 percent of the vote, the amount needed to win outright under Georgia’s election law, in his contest against Democrat Jon Ossoff. Officials on both sides expect a second runoff election for that seat that will keep Democrats’ Senate dreams alive.
It looks like the control of Georgia Senate seats might be decided in runoff elections in January.
Perdue had a lead, but as in the case of the presidency, a delayed vote-counting process puts his win in uncertainty.
Sen. Loeffler did not win 50 percent to clinch her re-election, so she will face another runoff in January.
Other fights are still in the offing. Thom Tillis is likely to win, but not guaranteed. Alaska looks safe, as it is mostly conservative.
So, it appears to all come down to Georgia. If Republicans are able to hold both seats, they will retain control of the Senate.
Should Biden become president, he will not be able to force his agenda through unhindered.
But if Democrats take these seats and Biden becomes president, there will be little resistance to his far-left agenda.
He will be able to pass assault weapons bans, raise taxes, and many other radical programs.
Will the American people allow Democrats to take the Senate?
- Control of the Senate is yet to be decided.
- Races for Georgia seats in ongoing and will probably lead to runoffs in January.
- With control of the Senate, a Biden presidency will have little resistance.
