Georgia Senate: Between the Parties

Republicans need a net gain of just one seat to take back control of the U.S. Senate and, on paper, Georgia appears the likeliest candidate to deliver the majority back to the GOP.

All of Republicans’ pickup opportunities are in states Joe Biden carried in 2020, but Georgia was the narrowest of Biden’s victories — just a 0.23 percent win — in the entire country.

And the GOP sees Democratic incumbent Raphael Warnock as an accidental senator, only in Washington because of a long string of happenstances and mishaps: the unexpected resignation of Sen. Johnny Isakson in 2019 that triggered a special election, the decision by Gov. Brian Kemp to go against President Donald Trump’s wishes when making a temporary appointment to Isakson’s seat, the aggressive and distracting campaign waged by Trump’s preferred replacement (Rep. Doug Collins) against Kemp’s pick (businesswoman Kelly Loeffler) that consumed GOP resources and attention all of 2020, Georgia’s unique special election laws, and finally, Trump’s fact-free insistence that the election in Georgia was rigged against him.

In 2022, with Trump out of office, Republicans hope the story in Georgia will be different.

But the former president has remained laser-focused on the Peach State. Not only has Trump continued to cast doubt on the legitimacy of Georgia’s election system, he is determined to cleave the Georgia GOP in two by trying to push out the incumbent governor, lieutenant governor, and secretary of state.
