'Now, we take Georgia. Then, we change America'
Senate Republicans released a brutal new ad on Saturday afternoon using Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer's own words against him.
POLL: Who is the most corrupt? The ad comes as Republicans fight to maintain their majority in the Senate, which they have enjoyed since they recaptured the majority from Democrats in the 2014 midterm elections.
What does the ad show? The ad shows Schumer as he celebrates in the streets of New York City after the media declared Joe Biden the president-elect.
Schumer was caught on camera saying, "Now, we take Georgia. Then, we change America."
The ad goes on to highlight exactly what that change would look like if Democrats control the White House and Congress. The ad lists: packing the courts, defunding the police, socializing medicine, a Green New Deal, raising taxes, and taking away your freedom.
"Fight back," the ad urges.
.@ChuckSchumer said it best: "Now, we take Georgia. Then we change America." Help us defend America by chipping i https://t.co/3LdVSjB6ne The Senate Majority (@The Senate Majority)1604785209.0 What's the background? Although the media have declared Biden the winner of the White House, Democrats suffered numerous down-ballot losses on Election Day. Republicans cut into their majority in the House, and Republicans even made significant gains on the state-level in places like New Hampshire and Alaska.
However, control over the Senate is not yet settled.
In fact, both of Georgia's U.S. Senate races remain undecided because the candidates in both races failed to reach the 50% threshold required to win outright. That means both races triggered runoffs.
Still, the odds that Democrats pick up both seats yet alone just one are very slim. If that were to happen, the Senate would be split 50-50 after Democrats unseated one Republican incumbent last week. In that case, Kamala Harris, the media-declared vice president-elect, would be the tie-breaking vote, effectively giving Democrats control of the White House, House, and Senate.
That's why Georgia will be monumentally important in the coming weeks.
Both runoff elections where Republican incumbent Sens. David Purdue and Kelly Loeffler will fight to retain their seats will be held on Jan. 5.
why bother? they’ll steal it
UNLESS the GOP is vocal and united in rooting out the fraud of this last election they get no support from me
My calcs say we win Georgia...and the Repub stat at 49.78 should easily exceed 50%....no runoff.
Part of me just doesn’t care about the Senate at all.
Speaking of ads, Trump should continue campaign ads, focusing on the various vote count frauds.
Obviously both sides are going to try and get maximum turnout of their base. Who do you think will be more successful in doing that in a special election in which Trump is not on the top of the ticket?
If we let this stand, who cares? Enough of this next election garbage.
I haven’t stayed up-to-date with Glenn Beck. Has he made any statements concerning this fraudulent election?
He’s a Trump supporter now and thinks the election is a sham like we do.
Dont bother? Thats exactly what they want.
“Part of me just doesnt care about the Senate at all.”
We all SHOULD CARE about the Senate. With 51 Republican seats, the Democrats will need 60 votes, INCLUDING 11 REPUBLICANS, to do any significant and lasting damage. With 50 Republican seats, the Democrats DO NOT NEED A SINGLE REPUBLICAN to permanently end this country as we know it.
Part of you should rethink this. You may not like the Senators, or even these particular candidates, but its all about the numbers and unless we have a majority, the Dems are going to control it all, unimpeded. And were really up a creek then.
ok, then let them steal it again.
look, I’ll bother when I am comfortable that fraud would not be the deciding factor
what will you say after you stand in the cold for hours to be at rallies, you contribute $, you go vote, and they steal it?
I’d vote for these RINOs in this situation in a heartbeat if I was comfortable that the fraud had been addressed
As corrupt as the Republican Senate is only Romney voted to convict in the Impeachment and even that worm voted for Judge Barrett. Court packing is the death of America because they intend to get lots of anti-Constitutional laws passed. Even the rotten RAT Senators reframed from giving FDR his court packing scheme. The RAT party is now evil enough to do it.
Packing the courts and DC statehood are what is at stake with those races.
Indeed they would. They would pack the courts first, then pass DC statehood - DC statehood is not constitutional, but they would pack the courts first with judges that would rule that it is.
if we give into the GOP begging for our support for Georgia without demanding that they unite vociferously to expose the fraud, we’re chumps
And every seat matters. If we end up 51-49 instead of 52-48 as a result of these run offs, that one seat could make the difference in holding the Senate in the 2022 election, you never know how that year will shake out.
