For those keeping tabs on the Georgia election and US Senate balance: Swearing in likely between January 15--22nd


Lost to the dusty fog of the ancient history of last Tuesday, two Democratic candidates beat their Republican incumbents in Georgia's runoff elections by margins exceeding automatic recount mandates. One of those incumbents' terms expired January 3rd, meaning the Senate now has 99 members.

Counties must certify results by January 15th, and the state by January 22nd, though possibly earlier. Swearing in will follow.

Vice President Mike Pence continues to hold the tie-breaking vote until noon on the 20th at which point VP-elect Kamala Harris becomes Vice President and President of the Senate, with a tie-breaking vote. Balance swings to the Democrats at some point between the 20th and 22nd, and Senator Chuck Schumer of New York becomes the presumed Majority Leader.

Barring further vacancies or shifts in allegiance, the Senate will have 49 democrats, 1 independent (Sanders, VT), caucusing with the Democrats, and 50 GOP members.

With a simple majority, the Democrats can pass legislation, confirm appointments, and change chamber rules. They lack the 2/3 majority required to impeach, approve treaties, or approve Constitutional amendments without further GOP votes. Some power-sharing will occur, and Committee memberships will be evenly split, with co-chairs.

I'm unclear on the rules for censuring or removing the chamber's own members, six GOP members of whom are widely considered to have supported sedition and overthrow of the elected executive representative of the People of the United States: Josh Hawley of Missouri, Ted Cruz of Texas, Tommy Tuberville of Alabama, Cindy Hyde-Smith of Mississippi, Roger Marshall of Kansas, and John Kennedy of Louisiana.

Democrats Secure Senate Majority With Dual Wins in Georgia

Victories Will Reshape Balance of Power as Biden Takes Office

- Jon Ossoff, the 33-year-old documentary film executive, defeated David Perdue, who recently completed a full term as senator.
- And the Rev. Raphael Warnock defeated Senator Kelly Loeffler, becoming the first Black Democrat elected to the Senate from the South.
- The first Senate wins for Democrats in Georgia this century deliver an emphatic, final rebuke to President Trump in his last days in office.

Biden to carry Georgia after second recount: state election official

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Democrat Joe Biden is headed toward victory in Georgia in the 2020 U.S. presidential election after the state’s second recount, Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said on Wednesday, rejecting false claims of fraud in the race.

“It looks like Vice President Biden will be carrying Georgia, and he is our president-elect,” Raffensperger, a Republican, said at a news conference after noting that no substantial changes have been seen in a second recount demanded by Republican President Donald Trump’s campaign. ...
An unexpeccted highlight of the endless recounts and challenges is watching Joe Biden and Kamala Harris win, win and win again.

Georgia Sen. David Perdue declines to debate opponent ahead of January 5 runoff

Georgia Republican Sen. David Perdue has declined an invitation to debate Democratic challenger Jon Ossoff ahead of the January runoff election for his seat, CNN has learned, and will instead be represented by an empty podium.

I missed this. Apparently Ossoff brought up so many of his crimes that he refuses to debate again.

Trump takes Georgia GOP senators hostage. Civil war erupts

Guess what? The Republican civil war breaking out in Georgia over the GOP's dismal electoral showing came at the demand of Donald Trump. As Georgia's two GOP senators embark on trying to save their seats in a January runoff, they were effectively given an ultimatum by Team Trump: Declare the Georgia returns favoring Joe Biden bogus, or else.
