Why We Won’t Know Senate Race Results Until 2021

Why We Won't Know Senate Race Results Until 2021

(RepublicanDaily.org) – The race for the White House remains to be finalized, with several legal challenges to Joe Biden’s supposed victory still outstanding. While we’ve heard less about it, though, it’s important to remember the Senate election is still ongoing as well.

On November 3, neither one of Georgia’s Republican senators, Kelly Loeffler or David Perdue, won their races. The state’s electoral rules require a winning candidate to claim 50% of the vote. Because nobody managed that, the state must hold runoff elections on Tuesday, January 5, to see who emerges victorious.

Georgia is a predominantly conservative state. This should work in favor of the two Republican candidates, particularly Senator Kelly Loeffler. Her Democrat opponent, Rev. Raphael Warnock, has been exposed as having some hard-Left tendencies.

Republicans currently hold 50 Senate seats, which means Democrats won’t be able to take an overall majority even if they win both runoffs. However, if Kamala Harris becomes vice-president, she will have the deciding vote in any deadlock in the chamber. Therefore, it’s imperative for the GOP that they win at least one of these races.
