One Republican Winner in Georgia. He Got More Votes Than Any Candidate in the Runoff.
An Addendum to This Morning's Post
I should note for everyone nationwide that there was a race in Georgia last night where the Republican candidate won.
The candidate is named Bubba McDonald. He’s the Chairman of the state’s Public Service Commission, which regulates utilities. McDonald, a Democrat turned Republican, got more votes than any other candidate in any other race. He got more votes than Ossoff, Warnock, Perdue, or Loeffler even though he was the last race on the ballot.
He was in no way connected to Trump; his race was not a referendum of Trump; he did not run on nightmare scenarios, creeping socialism, or culture war; and he kept his head down.
In fact, McDonald had limited money and just focused on keeping power costs low in Georgia. If there is a silver lining for this, it’s that a Republican can win statewide in Georgia and shut out the Democrats if they can find a way to run without every having to talk about Donald Trump.
