It Is Going To Be Interesting Tomorrow!


The election in Georgia tomorrow should be interesting.

One candidate who is a minster.

One candidate who is running on an anti-abortion platform and has been accused of paying for an abortion, also has been caught in several lies that the holier-than-thou evangelicals see as their poster child.

The run off election should favor the Democratic incumbent Sen. Raphael Warnock over Walker.

Georgia Republican Senate candidate Herschel Walker has a Kemp problem: Gov. Brian Kemp, a fellow Republican who rolled to a big victory in Tuesday’s midterms, won’t be on the ballot in next month’s Senate runoff election.

That’s a big issue for Walker, who should have been helped by Kemp’s presence on the ballot on Tuesday.

Kemp easily topped the 50 percent threshold in his reelection effort against Stacey Abrams, while Walker finished a little more than 48,000 votes behind Sen. Raphael Warnock (D), with neither getting above 50 percent.

Kemp outran Walker by 210,000 votes, putting the GOP Senate candidate behind the eight ball heading into the runoff.

I agree, being the sole ticket on the ballot there will not be that many who will be motivated to get out and vote, so it will boil down to who can get their people out to vote. Also without other Republicans on the ballot there is no real party vote, it is a straight one or the other vote and some held their nose when they pulled the party lever because of Walker. So those who were not highly motivated to get out and vote probably will not show up at the polls.

Then there are the voters who voted for Chase Oliver who ran on the Libertarian party and if they come out to vote in the runoff election how will they vote? Would Walker be to radical for them? Will his affiliation with Trump hinder or help him?



The final vote: Warnock 51.4%, Walker 48.6%

What is scary is that almost half of the voters put the party before the country.
