Trump takes off his clothes and runs down Pennsylvania Ave screaming, “It’s a fraud, it’s a fraud!” January 5, 2021 6:08 PM Log in to Reply Bertha Middle-aged white lady from Cobb checking in. I’ve been a registered Republican since the 1990s… and went with Ossoff and Warnock this round. I went back and forth on voting for Loeffler because I always default to supporting women… but couldn’t do it. For Perdue, it’s the popping the collar of a lined denim jacket while living on Sea Island for me. January 5, 2021 7:37 PM Log in to Reply bethebalance I predict 15 days of outrage.

January 5, 2021 8:46 PM Log in to Reply armanidog Tweet: Democratic Warren County (part of GA’s Black Belt) is at 94% of 2020 turnout. That’s far higher than the red counties that have reported so far, which are stuck between 82-90%. My theory: Loeffler’s attacks on the Black church backfired. #GAPol Yes!!!

Ossoff ahead by 9000, blue counties still to finish counting tomorrow. Now Perdue and Loeffler can play the stock market to their heart’s desire.

Brian Kemp, her once-and-probable-future rival. Abrams spent much of the past decade constructing the statewide apparatus that laid the groundwork for Democratic successes, including Joe Biden’s victory in November. She built the Fair Fight voting rights group into one of Georgia’s foremost political powers after her 2018 loss. And after passing on a U.S. Senate run herself, she recruited the Rev. Raphael Warnock to run for the open seat against Republican Sen. Kelly Loeffler – Kemp’s hand-picked selection for the seat.” https://www.ajc.com/politics/politics-blog/abrams-revenge-warnocks-victory-a-direct-blow-to-her-rival-kemp/ZLMYY73FWBE23FBJ75K6WJD5K4/ January 6, 2021 8:29 AM Log in to Reply Add a Comment Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
