Keep in mind that the GOP will be redrawing districts in a couple of years. Gerrymandering is coming. Scary times will continue.

Does money really do something though? It didn't get rid of Collins, McConnell, and Graham. Social media should encourage the younger voters and minorities to show up in greater numbers and vote.

Some of that money does go towards outreach on SM. They need to give it to Stacey Abrams and let her do her thing down there.

It's all about voter turnout. 300,000 voters were struck from the voter rolls back in 2016. They've been trying to make sure that most of those are reregistered. Give to Fair Fight, Abram's organization.

OP/R6 has it right. Biden only won in GA because of Stacey Abrams' incredible work mobilizing voters over the last two years. She's got to get them back for the special election in January. Historically Republicans have ALWAYS won GA special elections. This one is life or death for the Biden administration.

Unlike the $ that was ineffective in other contests, Abrams already has a fantastic ground operation. She needs to get every single D voter registered and following through with a ballot. That's got to be a 1:1, personalized, repetitive effort. She's got the infrastructure - give her the staffing & media/social media.

Nice to see we're keeping this thread active. Also if anyone has any other ideas (other than donating & calling/texting ) of getting involved for this critical race, do share. For e.g., I reached out to their campaigns & offered pro bono ad targeting/digital mktg help

I forget it was that I saw on MSNBC, but she's with Stacey Abram's group or a similar group in GA and she said "I thought I'd get to rest today, but we still have work to do. We have to get those senate seats."

We have to support them so they can energize young people and the black community to come out in January.

by Anonymousreply 2711/08/2020

It will be very hard for Warnock to beat Loeffler; because Loeffler will not only have her supporters but Collins as well, and together, there are a lot more votes there than for Warnock.

Still, I give major credit to Stacey Abram's or anybody who does their absolute best to try to beat her anyway, because she's toxic and horrible.

Now Ossoff might have a better chance.

Not true at all, they are actually dead even in terms of aggregate support. You need to add in all the votes cast for the long list of Repub, Dem and Indie candidates, see the list at the link below (scroll down to the GA Senate races for the full list and totals).

If you add up all the Repub votes cast vs Dem votes for this race, then split the difference with the Other (O) and Independent (I) candidates, they are nearly even: Loeffler with about 2.47 million vs Warnock's 2.43 million. About an 40k difference - a total horserace. It will all come down to turnout.

Let's be realistic here, the Democrats couldn't capture the Senate on election night by winning races they were expanded to win, like beating Collins in Maine. I most certainly wouldn't be pinning my hopes now on winning both Senate races in Georgia.

Republican Sens. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue of Georgia called on the state’s GOP secretary of state to resign on Monday, citing “failures” in the election process but not providing any specific evidence to support their claims.

“There have been too many failures in Georgia elections this year and the most recent election has shined a national light on the problems,” Loeffler and Perdue said in a joint statement. “The Secretary of State has failed to deliver honest and transparent elections.

Even in the unlikely event (unless Trump manages to reverse the election results, that is), that both Dems win, Joe Manchin, probably speaking for others as well, has already said he wouldn’t support efforts to expand the Court.

R79, hold your horses. Court reform may be moot for now if the Rethugs keep the Senate.

What Democrats have to do immediately is improve their messaging because 'packing the court' will hurt them in the coming elections like 'defund the police' did this year.

Then - focus on winning Senate seats in 2022/24 to defang Manchin or R-s like Collins/Murkowski so that bills can be passed without kowtowing to them. When that's done, first order of business should be DC and PR statehood. (though we don't know if PR will definitely elect only Democrats)

The so-called religious freedom objection to same sex marriage should be confined only to religious institutions like the churches. Nobody's forcing them to marry same sex people if they are so against it.

Judges and City Halls have been empowered to marry heterosexual couples for how many centuries now? Neither the church nor religion has the monopoly on marriage for hetero people and they could care less what religion says about divorced couples marrying. Why should it then have a monopoly to dictate who can marry in a civil institution is beyond me.

It's nuts to allow individual people employed by the civil institution to refuse to perform the duties of said institution. In what way is it legal for these nuts to impose their religious nuttist rules on everyone, including people who aren't religious. Why hasn't any atheist challenged this in court on the basis of encroachment on his/her freedom FROM religion in a secular institution which must be assumed under the 1A?

[quote]“You took money from the Chinese government that originated this virus in the first place,“ said Perdue at the Atlanta Press Club debate last week. “Jon Ossoff won’t hold China accountable. He works for them,” exclaims the narrator in Perdue’s latest campaign advertisement.

Raphael Warnock reminds me of Andrew Gillum. I hope he doesn't have a secret sex life that will end in tears, but on the other hand that Big Dick Face would be fun to flip fuck on the Appalachian Trail.

Yes we really need to win in GA. Little Marco is already signaling that the GOP is going to obstruct Biden’s cabinet picks

Let's be realistic here, the Democrats couldn't capture the Senate on election night by winning races they were expanded to win, like beating Collins in Maine. I most certainly wouldn't be pinning my hopes now on winning both Senate races in Georgia.

Agreed, but Collins had deep & personal ties in Maine, not so sure that is the case with Loeffler. That said, I'd be happy with a 50/50 split, though Derr Dump seems to be doing his best from pissing off GA & discouraging the MAGA-ites from voting, so who knows

Roger Stone-Tied Group Threatens GOP: If Trump Goes Down, So Does Your Senate Majority

Conservative operatives and a super PAC with ties to infamous GOP dirty trickster Roger Stone are calling for Trump supporters to punish Republicans by sitting out Georgia’s crucial Senate runoffs or writing in Trump’s name instead.

I don't think there's a more repugnant group of people in this country than the majority of working class white people. Seriously, they are just fucking stupid and people like Perdue, Loeffler and McConnell know that they are. That they vote based on skin color (and that is precisely what they do) and allow such corrupt filth to control everything, is sickening. How has constantly voting to cut off their nose helped them?

I have more fucking right to vote GOP than they do and I don't.

Raphael Warnock is a leader in Martin Luther King's Church. People begged him to run for office. He is well respected in the Black Church and Civil Rights Groups.

I am mixed about Georgia. On the one hand I want Biden to have both houses of Congress; however, this will empower the far left fringes like AOC to demand action on her socialists programs that would make Joe Biden embarrassed to defend. A split Congress would give Joe the ability to push back on his own party's cray cray fringes.

AOC is the least of Biden's worry. Your constant hand wringing over AOC and the Squad is tiring.

How dare AOC talk about our energy system and policy, who does she think she is a congressperson?

YES, she is a congressperson. She is doing her job. Thank god someone is.

AOC is a former bartender who smoked too much weed and has meager qualifications. She is lucky to not be on public assistance in the Bronx. This is why she is a target for the right.

Who has the better shot at winning?

The fact that we see more idiots go off about AOC and the other ethnic women when we have an actual Neo-Nazi, a QAnon loon and countless other Republicans trying to suppress voting, is why I absolutely loathe many enabling Dems who witness and ignore the very real threat from the right to instead engage in hyperbolic attacks and frankly, stealth bigotry and racism in the case of certain members. I see more visceral anger at these young women who have never proposed any kind of outrageous policy than at anything coming from conservative, white men. And spare me the horseshit where you claim to get angry at both equally, because youdon't. It's why you assholes are constantly saying "This is why Trump will win" for anything from the left, but the actual, dangerous behavior on the right never gets a "This is why Biden will win."

I fear what structural change might come if Dems win the Senate. The progressives in the House are very vocal and pushy. They have the media on their side, too. Best to keep a lid on them for as long as possible.

this is like saying a medical doctor is not a medical doctor because they worked at the mall or food court, when they were younger. This is just ILLOGICAL. Please can we make stupid a thing that is no longer in vogue.

R136 is too angry and all the insults distract from any point he tries to make. AOC is still a twat.
