ARE TRUMP ALLIES TRYING TO SABOTAGE GOP IN GEORGIA? Wednesday witnessed one of the most extraordinary events in recent political history. With two critical Senate races underway in Georgia — with Republican control of the Senate at stake — two prominent allies of a Republican president traveled to the state to urge voters not to vote for Republican candidates.
Sidney Powell and Lin Wood, two attorneys who are pursuing lawsuits alleging massive voter fraud in the presidential election in Georgia and elsewhere, attended a “Stop the Steal” rally in Alpharetta, outside of Atlanta. The rally came a little more than a month before Georgia’s January 5 runoff elections, in which Republican Senators David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler are running against Democrats Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock. If either Perdue or Loeffler wins, Republicans will have a narrow 51-49 majority in the Senate. If both win, a 52-48 majority will give Senate Republicans more power. But if Democrats win both races, the Senate will be split 50-50 and in the control of Democrats, since a Vice President Kamala Harris will have the tie-breaking vote.
