Bloomberg Government’s Kyle Trygstad and Greg Giroux discussed how Democrats won last week’s pair of Georgia Senate runoffs,and control of the chamber, on the latest episode of Downballot Counts.
A boom in Black voter turnout and a fundamental contradiction in the Republicans’ message — they couldn’t argue they’d be a check on a Democratic president while Donald Trump continued to assert baselessly that he was the true winner — helped Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock unseat Republican incumbents David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler.
Georgia will host more notable races in 2022, when Warnock seeks a full term and Gov. Brian Kemp (R), whom Trump maligned repeatedly over the past two months, runs for re-election.
