Are Georgia voters listening? Chuck Schumer wants to take their Senate seats and change America. How many Georgians want New York’s Chuck Schumer in charge of changing the country they love? Kylee Zempel reports on Schumer’s comments in The Federalist, writing:
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer waited only a few hours after several media outlets declared Joe Biden the winner of the presidential race before he declared the Democratic Party’s true intentions for the country should they reclaim the Senate.
The control of the upper chamber of Congress will likely come down to two Georgia runoff races in January, since none of the candidates in either contest reached the 50 percent threshold to win.
“Now we take Georgia, then we change the world,” Schumer said, holding a black 2020 flag with a “no” symbol over a 45, denoting Donald Trump, the 45th president, and the words “Reclaiming my country.”
“Now we take Georgia, then we change America,” the New York Democrat said at what appeared to be a mass celebration in New York City.
While the GOP currently has a 53-47 majority in the Senate, Democrats picked up one more Senate seat and will need two more to achieve a 50-50 divide, making potential vice president Kamala Harris the deciding vote should Biden indeed win the presidency after litigation ends.
One runoff race features incumbent Republican Sen. Kelly Loeffler, who filled the seat vacated by Republican Sen. Johnny Isakson earlier this year, against Democrat Raphael Warnock.
The other runoff will be between Republican incumbent David Perdue and Democratic challenger Jon Ossoff.
