Why does it matter so much to rule-of-law conservatives that Republican Senators David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler win their January 5 runoffs in Georgia?
Because control of the Senate depends on it.
If Perdue or Loeffler win—preferably both—Senate Majority Leader McConnell keeps his job.
If Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock both win, Charles Schumer becomes the majority leader. And he’s made his agenda very clear:
“Now we take Georgia, then we change America!”
If Schumer wins Senate control, he can indeed “change America” by beginning the undoing of the capstone achievement of McConnell’s steady, disciplined six years as majority leader: confirmation of three Supreme Court justices and 53 appeals court judges.

The future of the Senate and the course of the nation under a Biden administration will be decided there.
