Hugh Hewitt: On to Georgia

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.

Chen: GOP Exceeds Expectations in Contests for the Senate


We’re still waiting for the dust to settle on this year’s elections, but one thing appears extremely likely: Republicans will retain control of the United States Senate.

Credit should go to Mitch McConnell and the leadership team at the National Republican Senatorial Committee. They were left for dead by many pundits and analysts before the election but managed to pull off an impressive victory—even though they were outspent by tens of millions of dollars in crucial races across the country.

Congratulations should go to incumbent Senators Susan Collins, Thom Tillis, Joni Ernst and Steve Daines, who appear to have won reelection. David Perdue of Georgia is close to victory, and—at least as I speak—challenger John James is running ahead in Michigan.

It was a good night for the Republican majority in the Senate. That will be hugely important, regardless of who wins the presidency.

Lanhee Chen: Karen Handel’s Victory

Tax Reform

Republican Karen Handel’s victory in the special election in Georgia’s Sixth Congressional District will generate a lot of punditry and spin.

Democrats will argue that they got a lot closer than they should have in a district that Republican Tom Price, now the Secretary of Health and Human Services, won by 23 points less than a year ago.

Republicans will respond by noting that their opponents poured $30 million into the race and yet the Democrat wasn’t able to do any better than Hillary Clinton did in losing the district to Donald Trump last year.

Both sides are right, to some degree. That’s why it’s hard to draw too many conclusions about what this means for the midterms next year. There are many political lifetimes to be led between now and then. And intervening events will impact voters’ opinions over the next 17 months.

We’d all be well served to take a deep breath and let it all unfold. Predicting the future never has been a very good business to be in, anyway.
