Republicans should be on to Georgia.
Bill Belichick—coach of the New England Patriots—had a line from his most famous news conference ever. After a 41-14 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in 2014, he answered question after question with, “We’re on to Cincinnati.”
After Joe Biden’s victory was declared by media organizations on Saturday, the mantra of Republicans for the next two months should be: “We’re on to Georgia”—because on January 5, Georgians will decide two United States Senate seats in runoff elections.
The course of the nation over the next two years is in the balance: If Republican Senators David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler win, Americans will have divided government and compromise. If left-wing, indeed radical Democratic challengers Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock win, the nation will see Supreme Court packing, cuts in military spending and socialized medicine.
If Trump wants a comeback in 2024, it starts in the Peach State on January 5.
We’re on to Georgia.
