Lanhee Chen: The Conservative Agenda After the Loss of Georgia Senate Seats

Democrats will be in control of both houses of Congress, and the White House, after Joe Biden is inaugurated on January 20th and Georgia’s two new United States Senators, Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock, take their seats later this month.

Republicans have suffered a number of electoral setbacks—not only did they lose control of the White House, but they’ll be in the minority in both houses of Congress for the first time in a decade.

Looking ahead, Republicans will need to remain united to defeat efforts to move policy in America further to the progressive left. And they’ll need to present a compelling vision for what they’ll do if given the opportunity to govern again. The conservative movement has traditionally stood for economic opportunity, personal freedom, a strong national defense, and the value of human life. These are values that many of our fellow Americans share and should be the backbone of efforts by conservatives to lead, once again.

Hugh Hewitt: The Course of the Nation and the Georgia Senate Contest

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.

With Schumer as majority leader, expect a liberal assault on the Trump-McConnell legacy of a federal bench bolstered by constitutionalism.

Watch those contests in Georgia closely.

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

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.

Albert Mohler: The Left—Moving Further Left

Billy Graham

Since the inauguration of President Donald Trump, the Democrats have lost five special elections, most recently in the state of Georgia where they had poured 30 million dollars into Jon Ossoff’s congressional campaign in the 6th district.

This is leading to a great deal of reconsideration of party identity and of strategy on the part of the Democrats. The energy tends to be now disproportionately on the left and that left is moving further left, represented by figures such as Senator Bernie Sanders.

But in order to win in these kinds of suburban districts, Democratic candidates are going to have to run to the center. But what if the center also fails? That’s the quandary that Democrats now face.

It’s going to lead to a huge ideological and political debate within the Democratic Party. And as we know, that means very important worldview issues will be at stake.

How this all plays out will be important not just to the Democratic Party but to the entire nation.

We’ll be watching closely.

DNC Pouring More Money into Ossoff

The story notes “Republicans got more votes yesterday in GA-06 than Democrats and unaffiliateds combined — even after the air-dropping of $8.3 million into Jon Ossoff’s campaign. Perez and the DNC had a huge organizational advantage and the normal opportunities afforded in special elections, and still couldn’t pull off the steal” (Hot Air). The incredible moment Ossoff is confronted with the fact that he doesn’t live in the district he seeks to represent (YouTube). A look at how Democrats overplayed their hand (Washington Examiner).  Another story claims it went as predicted (National Review). Karl Rove explains why both sides should be concerned (WSJ). The results made Alyssa Milano “want to puke” (Breitbart).
