Georgia Republicans, MAKE SURE YOU VOTE: Pelosi: GA Senate Victories Would Give Dems Supermajority-Like Ability to Pass Legislation; Early Vote Tops 3+ Million, and related stories

Nancy Pelosi: Georgia Senate Victories Would Give Democrats Supermajority-Like Ability to Pass Legislation:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said during a virtual Sojourner Truth Project event last week that ousting Sens. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) and David Perdue (R-GA) will give them significant power to pass legislation because they can pass bills with a simple majority in the Senate using reconciliation.
Pelosi spoke virtually at the Sojourner Truth Project on December 22 via Zoom. During the event, she discussed how Georgia Senate Democrat candidates Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock’s potential victories would give Democrats significant power to pass legislation in Congress. She compared their Democrats’ potential power to having essentially 60 votes in the Senate.
“One more thing, because you know how I’m about numbers, when we win these two seats, plus Kamala Harris breaking the tie, it’ll be like getting 60 votes because once we have even the simple majority, we can vote for reconciliation, which means that you only need 51 votes to pass certain legislation,” Pelosi said. --->READ MORE HERE

Experts see trouble for GOP as early vote tops 2 million in Georgia:
Early voting in Georgia’s two runoff elections for Senate passed the 2 million mark on Thursday, according to an independent analysis, prompting speculation that President Trump is hurting the Republican candidates.
The vigorous early voting is on pace to match turnout in the Nov. 3 general election, which is remarkably high for a runoff election.
Pollster and political analyst Ron Faucheux said he was surprised by the numbers and attributed the surge in early voting to Mr. Trump’s protracted fight with Georgia election officials
“The only explanation is that Trump’s behavior could be hurting the Republicans,” he said. “There are more Republican than Democratic voters who say they’re not voting. That could be for any number of reasons, but I think Trump is hurting the [Republican] brand.” --->READ MORE HERE
