#3 I wonder how this can happen. They have no checks?

#4 They warned GA Gov. Brian Kemp when he appointed her. He did it because he said a "moderate" would do better in Georgia's Senate race, and she has big money and can self fund. Fail.

This election is a bit different: Its a "Jungle" election, to fill the remainder of the term for Issakson who resigned due to health.
In the election, candidates from all parties are competing on the same ballot. If no candidate earns a majority (50% +1) of the vote, the special election will go to a January 5 runoff between the top two highest-performing candidates.

Rep. Doug Collins, a Trump defender, is also running, so the GOP may split the vote and let the dems sneak in if they manage to top 50%.

GOP is the stupid party.

Luckily the Democrats are the Stuider party sometimes. They have three candidates running. Ebenezer Baptist Church pastor Raphael Warnock is supposedly leading all candidates and is the Dem establishment backed candidate, but there is also a businessman Matt Lieberman and ormer State Senator Ed Tarver as well. Polls have likely voters expressing a preference for 26% Loeffler, 21% for Warnock, 19% for Collins, and 15% for Lieberman. Another poll has Loeffler at 24%, Collins 20, Warnock at 19, 10% Lieberman, 7% Tarver.

And Loeffler has double the money of anyone in the race. If she'd stop stepping on her own feet, she'd win the general.

#5 Key thing is to keep the lead for Loeffler, and get Collins past Warnock, so the runoff becomes R vs R, and the seat stays R.

#6 Yeah, maybe, but got to remember there is a country to this day in central Europe called Hungary, land where the Huns settled. On a side note, they came from central Asia, kicked ass in Europe, and finally settled down. So, don't give me a sad song about Europeans doing it to others. History is about one group doing it to another.

#8 And Loeffler has double the money of anyone in the race.

From her insider trading, I suppose.

#9 Quite the clumsy utterance by Loeffler...she should just get out and trade stocks on her Robin Hood trading platform.
