Hugh Hewitt: Every U.S. Citizen Will Be Impacted by Georgia’s Vote

January 5th, 2021 marks a decisive day in this new year, one that will resonate throughout all of ’21 and indeed 2022.

This is because Georgia votes today in runoffs for two United States Senate seats. It’s an election of enormous consequence for the other 49 states because the results will determine whether Republicans or Democrats control the Senate—and thus greatly impacting every U.S. citizen.

Salem is supporting David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler—and encouraging Georgians to turnout to return these two incumbents to office. Their opponents—John Ossoff and Raphael Warnock—are both very left wing. The Rev. Warnock may, in fact, be the most radical major party candidate of the era.

A GOP majority will ensure a check on President-elect Biden. They’ll refuse to confirm radical judicial appointments while continuing robust spending on the American military.

Georgians, please vote! And if you know anyone in Georgia, please call them and urge them to vote today.

Mohler: Do Voters in Georgia Recognize Raphael Warnock?


There is one big question still outstanding from our recent election and that question is this: Who will control the United States Senate?

There are two races in Georgia which will decide control of the Senate for at least the next two years, likely longer.

In one of those races—the contest is between Kelly Loeffler and Raphael Warnock—and in this race, you’re looking at something that is unprecedented in the state of Georgia.

The Reverend Dr. Raphael Warnock just may be the most radical candidate conceivable from a state like Georgia.

When it comes to the question of abortion, he is one of the most radical candidates to run, not only in the South, but anywhere in recent American history.

The question is, do the voters in Georgia actually recognize this?

We’re going to find out on January the 5th. Now is the time for the voters of Georgia to wake up and understand what’s going on. The entire nation is watching.

Lanhee Chen: The Course of the Country Turns on Georgia

The eyes of the political world are all on Georgia, and there’s good reason for that.

On January 5, voters in the Peach State will decide the fate of the next several years in American politics—and maybe beyond.

A win by either or both of incumbent Senators Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue will require President-Elect Joe Biden and his liberal allies in Congress to work together with Republicans to pass common-sense legislation, rather than pursuing progressive priorities like the Green New Deal. And it will mean that some of Biden’s more extreme appointments—people who either aren’t qualified or who are far out of the mainstream—will be rejected by the Senate.

The runoff elections on January 5 will be held in Georgia, but their impact will be felt by more than the 10 million people who live there. All Americans should recognize that nothing short of the course our country will take for the next several years is at stake.

Albert Mohler: Which Party Will Be Setting the Agenda in the Senate?

In the wake of the contentious 2020 election, the battle for the majority in the U.S. Senate looms large. That majority will be decided in the two run-off elections in the state of Georgia on January 5th.

Both of the Republicans are incumbents: Kelly Loeffler was appointed by Governor Kemp, replacing Johnny Isakson who had resigned for health reasons.

And David Perdue is running for his second term representing Georgians.

Neither of the candidates reached Georgia’s requirement of 50-percent plus one in the November 3rd election.

All of this matters tremendously:

Holding the majority in the Senate determines who sets the agenda. To put it this way, nothing can come to the Senate floor if the majority leader does not allow it to be presented for a vote.

Turnout is going to be key. It will likely be a very partisan vote, which means that one party or the other is likely to win both seats.

As we understand the issues that will come before the Senate, that matters immensely.

Keep your eyes on Georgia.
