Georgia on my mind

If you’re a Republican, holding the Senate provides the last hope of checks-and-balance to a wholly Democratically-controlled government, for perhaps a generation or more.

“Georgia, oh Georgia; No, no, no, no, no peace I find; Just an old sweet song; Keeps Georgia on my mind.”
Georgia’s been on the minds of lots of people these days—but not because of the song. Come Jan. 5, Georgia voters will set the course our country will follow for the next four years, and possibly for a generation.
    This year’s presidential race between President Donald Trump and former Vice-President Joe Biden proved to be one of the closest races since the Bush/Gore race in 2000.
    Short of some miraculous discovery of voter improprieties or outright fraud, the voters in the Electoral College will elect Joe Biden as our next president, like it or not.
    Biden’s election will give the Democrats the White House, along with control of the House of Representatives.
    The big question right now is which party will control the Senate. It comes down to two Senate runoff elections in Georgia on Jan. 5.
    A Senate candidate in Georgia has to receive 50% of the vote in the General Election to be elected. Without a majority, a runoff election between the top two candidates is held to determine the winner.
    After the General Election, Republicans hold 50 of the 100 seats in the Senate. Win one of the two races and the Republicans retain control of the Senate. Lose both and the Senate, House and presidency will all be controlled by the Democrats.
