In a previous column, I documented how defections from Never Trump Republicans provided the winning margin for, now, President-Elect Joe Biden in Arizona, Wisconsin and Georgia, three states Biden won by a total of 43,475 (a revised figure) votes. If those states had flipped, it would have been a 269-269 tie in the Electoral College and the House would have handed Trump a second term
Democrat Joe Biden is the 46th President of the United States and his win, without question, was made possible by Republicans who refused to sign on to another four years of Donald Trump.
Next up on January 5th is a run-off election involving the fate of two sitting Georgia Republican Senators. This time it might be another group of Republicans - Trump Republicans - whose efforts, or lack thereof - give control of the Senate to the Democrats.
A movement is afoot to punish Georgia Senator David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler for their sin of not being sufficiently supportive of Trump's attempts to overturn the election result in Georgia. Salon today reports:
A super PAC linked to longtime Trump adviser Roger Stone is calling for Republicans to write-in the president's name in the upcoming Senate runoff elections in Georgia as retaliation after his re-election bid failed in the once red state.
