Sen. McConnell: Election may be decided in courts

Second stimulus check update: McConnell says a new bill is ‘job one’ when Congress returns. Here’s the latest. Sen. Kelly Loeffler Advances to Runoff Election With Warnock for Senate Seat Representing Georgia
Bennie Garza | 06 November, 2020, 20:36

"The Loeffler-Warnock runoff is expected to shatter records for political spending", the Atlanta Journal Constitution reported, attributing that expectation to Loeffler's vast personal fortune and the fact that "the January race will be Georgia's first Senate runoff since the U.S. Supreme Court's landmark Citizens United ruling allowed for virtually unlimited outside political spending in campaigns".

Warnock had raised US$22 million for his Senate campaign by mid-October, according to documents filed with the Federal Election Commission.

One certainty is the upended projections will force a rethinking of polling, fundraising and the very messages the parties use to reach voters in the Trump era and beyond.

The arrangement, which worked reasonably well, only ended up holding for about five months, until Republican Sen.

"An unlawfully counted vote suppresses a lawful voter as thoroughly as if that voter was physically barred from voting at the polling place", Shafer said in a statement released on Wednesday.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., speaks with reporters during a press conference in Louisville, Ky., Wednesday, Nov. 4, 2020.

Trump's theatrics, given that they do not appear to be justified at all, should not distract from the achievement the 2020 election represents. "It alienates voters because if you watch the advertising and that race you today I don't want either one of them to be a United States senator if what I'm hearing is true they're both awful people", said Ellinger.

Progressives, meanwhile, lament losses in Senate races that could have given Democrats a majority with a cushion. An evenly split Senate is rare in USA history, and has only happened three times before.

In one of Georgia's Senate races, incumbent Republican David Perdue is falling just short of 50% of the vote in his battle against Democrat Jon Ossoff and Shane Hazel from the Libertarian Party, with 98% of the ballots counted. However, many Democrat-leaning areas are still counting votes. Biden attracted almost two-thirds of those votes and could not have won Arizona without them, CBS said.

Rep. Will Hurd, a Texas Republican who did not seek reelection, called Trump's comments about corruption "dangerous" and "wrong".

This time, it's two races in the Senate, which are more expensive to begin with, and would determine control of the chamber.

Are our own leaders here as committed to democratic principles? "We had a better election than most people thought we'd have, but we have improvements we need to make".

"It's time for a different approach", said Democrat John Hickenlooper, a former governor who unseated Republican Sen.

North Carolina Sen. Thom Tillis leads Democratic challenger Cal Cunningham by almost 2 points, or about 100,000 votes out of about 5.5 million.

His Democratic challenger Cal Cunningham holds 46.9 per cent of the vote - a slim 1.8 per cent margin.

In the other Georgia race, GOP Sen. David Perdue and Democratic challenger Jon Ossoff would further offer Democrats a shot at outright control. It, too, could go to a runoff.
