Perhaps even General Sherman’s march through Georgia couldn’t match the political battle shaping up in the Peach State as Republican Senators Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue try to fend off challenges by two Democrats who are getting major support, financially and politically.
But it might not be the best help, considering New York Sen. Charles Schumer’s unpopularity down south with his gun control history and a recent statement that will come back to haunt Democrat challengers Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff.
According to Fox News, last week Schumer declared in the wake of the national elections, “Now we take Georgia. Then, we change America.”
That remark is not going over well with conservative Georgians.
Neither is Warnock’s past association with the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, who infamously declared during a video sermon, “God d—n America.” In or out of context, the phrase clings to the controversial minister.
Loeffler is reportedly characterizing Warnock as a “radical’s radical” with a “socialist agenda,” Fox News reported.
Meanwhile, Perdue is linking Ossoff with Schumer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, another top Democrat who is not popular down south. According to a separate Fox News report, a Perdue advertisement states, “You heard him. Chuck Schumer is trying to use Georgia to take the Senate majority and radically change America…The Schumer, Pelosi, Ossoff change? Defund police. Voting rights for illegal immigrants. Washington, D.C. as the 51st state.” It’s the kind of rhetoric likely to bring Georgia conservatives out of the woodwork.
And hiding in the weeds is the gun rights battle. Without GOP control of the U.S. Senate—which hinges on Perdue and Loeffler winning re-election—Schumer and other Senate anti-gunners from the Northeast will move swiftly to push the Joe Biden gun control agenda into law.
On Nov. 3, Perdue defeated Ossoff narrowly by a 49.7 to 48 percent tally. Warnock came out ahead of Loeffler 32.9 percent to 25.9 percent, so they must have a runoff because nobody cracked the 50 percent threshold.
Loeffler may be able to consolidate Republican votes in the runoff, but Warnock can count on that from Democrats who voted for a different candidate in the packed field prior to the general election. The race could be close as a result, and Democrats want a majority or at least a 50-50 tie in the Senate, with Kamala Harris providing the tie-breaking vote. The special election is Jan. 5, and between now and then, observers are anticipating a grueling political fight over the two Senate seats.
