Georgia is still in shock to be the first crack in the Republican Red Wall of the Deep South. Georgia Democrats could sense Joe Biden’s narrow but important victory ahead. Now, with the two U.S. Senate seats on the line to determine control of the Upper House during Biden’s first two years, the country has a front row seat to watch us demonstrate that Biden’s victory was no accident. .

The Democrats’ 18-year journey through the political desert of Georgia began in 2002, when U.S. Senator and Vietnam War hero Max Cleland was defeated by ads accusing him of bending over with Osama bin Laden. . That same year, Democratic Gov. Roy Barnes was overthrown by far-reaching candidate Sonny Perdue (first cousin of current Senator David Perdue), who ran animated ads depicting Barnes as a “rat king.”

Thus ended approximately 140 years of democratic rule in Georgia. So it’s no surprise that in our current bitter fight for a democratic Georgia renaissance, Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue’s campaigns in the Senate – when they’re not tearing their own party apart – are running unlikely ads that Jon Ossoff is a Chinese Communist agent. and Reverend Raphael Warnock is a terrorist sympathizer. This theater of the absurd has not yet disappointed Republicans.
