Echoing Trump, @sendavidperdue is asking for the impossible - a recount “in which signatures on absentee ballot envelopes are properly matched and verified to their signature on the registration.” #gapol
County election officials verify signatures when they receive absentee ballots, but after that point, it’s impossible to match ballots back to voters due to ballot secrecy protections guaranteed by the Georgia Constitution. #gapol #gasen…
Now the @GaRepublicans leadership gets in on the action, with a letter making the same impossible demand — “an immediate audit of the absentee ballots cast in the 2020 General Election. This audit must include verification of signature match.” #gapol

Georgia. Runoffs. Normalt betyr det trøbbel for demokratene. Det har vært 8 statlige runoffs i Georgia siden 1988. Demokratene har bare vunnet et av dem. Republikanerne møter opp til runoffs i større grad en demokratene.
... en TRÅD
2/ Det er den spesielle regelen om at man må ha over 50% av stemmene i GA, som gjør at man har runoffs 5. januar 2021. Og når den ene senatoren (Loeffler (R)) er oppnevnt av Gov. Kemp, fordi den valgte representanten Johnny Isakson trakk seg, er det nå TO valg i januar.
3/ I valget om det ene setet, er det et «normalvalg» hvor Pedue (R) vs. Ossoff (D) kjemper om å representere GA i 6 år. Kampen om det andre setet mellom Loeffler (R) og Warnock (D) er en kamp om «resten» av Isaksons periode – dvs vinneren blir sittende til 2022.

Sen. @TomCottonAR in Georgia: “We all wish these elections had been won on Nov. 3. But sometimes the Lord works in mysterious ways ... He has given you the opportunity and the honor to hold the line and make sure that Republicans remain in charge.” #gapol #gasen
To be clear, Cotton is talking about the Georgia Senate races forced into runoffs - not Trump. Says @sendavidperdue, making same claims he made in first round: “This is critical because the Democratic Party has been taken over by radical leftist socialists ...” #gapol #gasen
.@SenatorLoeffler’s go-to campaign stump speech addition: “Hold the line” - a phrase she’s uttered about a half-dozen times.
“I know we're gonna hold the line, because no one wants the radical agenda of the left.” #gapol #gasen

El control del senado de EEUU se decidirá en Georgia (en enero). En este momento se puede asegurar que los demócratas tendrán 48 escaños, mientras los republicanos en el próximo 50; faltando los 2 escaños que deben ir a segunda vuelta en enero en Georgia
Si los demócratas ganan ambos escaños en enero tendrían el control del Senado a partir del 20 de enero, ya que la vicepresidenta electa Kamala Harris tendría el poder de romper el empate en la cámara.
La pregunta es si es probable que los demócratas ganen estos dos escaños en Georgia y aunque Biden puede ser el primer candidato demócrata en ganar en este estado desde 1992 (Bill Clinton) la contienda de enero es muy reñida y con leve tendencia a inclinarse al lado republicano

Georgia GOP Senators Perdue and Loeffler,now both facing #GASen runoff elections,call on Georgia Sec of State Brad Raffensperger to resign:“The management of GA elections has become an embarrassment for our state..He has failed the people of GA,& he should step down immediately."
Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger responds to Georgia GOP Senators Perdue and Loeffler's call for his resignation: "Let me start by saying this is not going to happen. The voters of Georgia hired me, and the voters will be the one to fire me."
GA Sec of State Raffensperger (R): "I know emotions are running high. Politics are involved in everything now. If I was Senator Perdue, I'd be irritated I was in a runoff. And both Senators and I are all unhappy with the potential outcome for our President."

A scathing joint statement from Georgia’s two Republican US Senators — @sendavidperdue & @SenatorLoeffler — both in a Jan. 5 runoff for control of the chamber. It flies in the face of other Republicans who have praised the handling of the election. #gapol
@sendavidperdue @SenatorLoeffler Say the two senators of their fellow Republican, Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger: "The Secretary of State has failed to deliver honest and transparent elections. He has failed the people of Georgia, and he should step down immediately." #gapol #gasen
@sendavidperdue @SenatorLoeffler Like other Republicans who have criticized the election, the two senators didn't show an iota of evidence of voter fraud or election irregularities. Earlier today, Georgia GOP Lt. Gov. @GeoffDuncanGA said there were no "credible examples" of fraud. #gapol…

👀 Short thread: My analysis of the GEORGIA Senate runoffs, and why these absolutely crucial races lean red based on current dynamics & history. But they're not gimmes, especially if Republican voters throw in the towel...…
🚨 All hands on deck: With stakes extremely high, frustrated-to-livid Trump supporters can see electing Perdue & Loeffler as their first test of 'resistance' turnabout, and as essential to protecting key pieces of Trump's legacy against dismantling under total Dem control...
Meanwhile, moderates & Trump-skeptical right-leaners can view these contests as an important opportunity to guarantee checks & balances. If Dems pull off upsets, Pelosi/Schumer will drive the agenda in DC. If R's win, there will be more power sharing, driven by Biden/McConnell.

For most of the next two months, Georgians will still be heading to the polls - deciding several runoffs (including statewide Public Service Commission 12/1!) and culminating with a double-barrel #gasen contest that the nation will be watching. #gapol…
Starting today, voters in Georgia's 5th Congressional District in Atlanta can vote early in person in the special election runoff to fill, essentially, a few weeks of the late Rep. John Lewis' term.

That race is 12/1.…
Also on the ballot will be runoffs for several state and local races, including the Public Service Commission District 4 contest, where incumbent Republican Bubba McDonald was faces Democrat Daniel Blackman.…

So let's take a look at #GASEN for a minute.…
First, by the numbers. GOP won more raw votes in both races, albeit narrowly. Perdue in particular ran 2pts ahead of DJT, and in 48 other states, he'd be locked in for another term. Otoh, Biden is on the verge a fairly stunning victory among the same voters.
Second, synergy, for lack of a less consultant-y term. This is a 2-for-1 special where both tickets stand to be complimentary. Perdue surely helps the post-primary reconciliation effort for Rs, and the Ossoff-Warnock buddy comedy is an intriguing combo for Ds, at least on paper.

State elections officials just received more votes from DeKalb County, the most important Democratic stronghold in Georgia, cutting Trump’s lead over Biden to about 87k. #gapol
If Biden manages to flip Georgia, this @nytimes map shows how Democrats pulled it off: They held court in urban counties and turned suburban and exurban counties a deeper shade of blue compared with four years ago. #gapol
The latest: Democrats have cut Trump’s edge within 80k votes. Expect that margin to continue to tighten as metro Atlanta returns trickle in. #gapol

The @nytimes needle has moved and some at the Georgia GOP party are quietly taking note. The reason why? DeKalb is starting to come in, giving Democrats a net 100k gain. #gapol
As of 1:20A, Trump has a 240k vote lead over Biden in Georgia — and much of DeKalb, as well as portions of Gwinnett, Cobb and Fulton — remain outstanding. #gapol
Most of DeKalb is now in - and it helped Biden considerably narrow the gap. He now trails Trump by about 120k votes in Georgia, with still more to be counted in left-leaning metro Atlanta counties. #gapol

Republican Doug Collins concedes to @SenatorLoeffler and pledges to support her in the Jan. 5 runoff against Democrat @ReverendWarnock #gapol #gasen
In the other #gasen race, @sendavidperdue still has a commanding edge over Jon @ossoff. But most of metro Atlanta - including nearly all of DeKalb - have still not been reported. #gapol

A little more on the one-sided results so far: Fulton and Cobb mail-in votes have been tallied, but nothing substantial yet from other Democratic bastions of Gwinnett, DeKalb, Augusta, Athens, Columbus or Macon. #gapol
Most of deeply-Republican Hall County has now reported, expanding Trump’s margins. In #gasen special election, @SenatorLoeffler maintains her lead over Collins despite his home county’s vote totals. #gapol
Republican @sendavidperdue is outperforming Trump by about 300k votes, building himself a big cushion for when metro Atlanta votes start coming in. Virtually nothing in yet from the Democratic stronghold of DeKalb, lots of votes left in Cobb, Gwinnett and Fulton. #gapol #gasen

It's almost time to switch to election results in Georgia, so a few reminders/tips #gapol:

-Use the state's results page:…
-ignore precincts reporting because most votes are absentee
-we know how many early votes came before today!…
I’ll be covering things starting off tonight from @ReverendWarnock’s HQ. He’s hoping to ride a commanding lead into a special election runoff against Kelly Loeffler or Doug Collins in the #gasen special election. #gapol Image
Warnock just arrived at his campaign HQ in front of a few cheering staffers and supporters. He’s in good spirits as early results show he is almost certain to take top spot into a runoff.

President Trump makes his entrance to a final Georgia rally before Tuesday’s vote.
Trump purposefully mispronounces Kamala Harris' name and says she won't be the first woman president because she's more liberal than "crazy Bernie."
"They said you don’t have to go to Georgia, we have it won … honestly we can skip Georgia …" #gapol
