President Donald Trump and other elected officials of the Republican Party are reluctant to acknowledge Joe Biden’s triumph in the presidential election in order to plan their strategy to maintain control of the Senate.
This is what a New York Times report concludes on the time it has taken Trump to award Biden victory.
The president’s allegations of electoral fraud are unfounded, but would serve to keep the Republican electorate alive in Georgia, where the two Senate elections went into a second round, to be held on January 5.
“We need your voters,” the senator told reporters on Wednesday. John Thune (South Dakota). “Right now he is trying to go through the final stages of his election and determine the outcome there. But when all is said and done, be that as it may, we want it to help in Georgia.
Right now the Republicans are in control with 50 seats to 48 of the Democrats. If the latter manage to win on January 5, things would remain the same, so the tiebreakers in the voting of the legislation would remain in the hands of the person who occupies the vice presidency, who by the results of the elections would be Kamala Harris. Republicans want to avoid that scenario at all costs.
In the November 3 elections, Republicans David Perdue and Kelly Loeffle appeared above the Democrats Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock, but none reached 50% of the vote. State law requires a second round.
Democrats have started raising money to boost campaigns for Ossoff and Warnock. Biden’s victory helps them as the electorate knows the importance of having the Senate in favor.
In this way Georgia becomes the battlefield of American politics,
