Of all the upsets of the 2020 election, perhaps the worst were from the state of Georgia. The reliably red state suddenly “flipped” blue, giving Joe Biden the win—not to mention electing two new leftist senators.
Many people have tried to dissect what went wrong. Was it more of these “irregularities” we heard about? Was it because the RINOs who run the state refused to confront serious attacks against their election process by the left? And what about the January runoffs? Was it Mitch McConnell’s fault? Trump’s fault? Or were Republican voters just too demoralized to go to the polls?
We can’t say for sure. But what we do know is that at least one of those leftist senators, radical former pastor Raphael Warnock, might not be around for very long. He is simply finishing out the term of a retired senator, so he doesn’t get six years as normal.
In fact, he will have to fight for his seat in the 2022 Midterm elections. And one familiar face might give him a run for his money.
Former Sen. David Perdue (R-GA) has filed to challenge Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-GA) for U.S. Senate in Georgia in 2022, according to the Federal Election Commission.
Perdue, a 71-year-old businessman who previously served one term as a Georgia senator, lost his bid for reelection in January in a high-profile runoff race against now-Sen. Jon Ossoff (D-GA). Perdue’s paperwork indicates he is now formally considering running as a Republican primary candidate in 2022, this time to unseat Warnock who is up for reelection as he finishes out the term of retired Sen. Johnny Isakson (R-GA). [Source: Breitbart]
Warnock will face an uphill battle if he runs against Perdue. David Perdue had already served as a senator and has a record that appeals to conservative, Georgia voters. Warnock is a far-left Democrat, considered an extremist by many. He won his race in January by a slim margin of votes, running against an unpopular senator who had been controversially appointed by the governor.
The next race won’t pan out as nicely as this time, for Warnock. There won’t be a pandemic response to exploit. He certainly won’t have a record of achievement that many Georgians will like. In fact, one of the winning promises he and Joe Biden made to GA has already failed: the $2,000 relief checks. Biden and Democrats have already reneged on that, sparking outrage by liberal voters in the state.
We can’t predict how 2022 will look like, but it will most likely be a crucial election for more than just Georgia. Republicans are determined to retake the House and perhaps the Senate. Democrats only have two years to impress America, and they’re already failing.
Democrats, including Warnock, voted for a second impeachment instead of focusing on helping Americans. They have promised much with COVID relief, but are spending time putting money into radical goals, rather than help with the pandemic. They are screwing up the vaccination rollout, which was going smoothly under Trump.
Perdue just might have a strong advantage, going into 2022.
