Get This, Warnock Won the Georgia Senate Runoff Election and He Is Charging Election Fraud
There was record voter turnout in Georgia’s runoff election for the Senate, but after incumbent Democratic Senator Raphael Warnock was declared the winner of the special election, he still harped on the tired, voter suppression theme of his campaign against Republican Herschel Walker.
In the midst of declaring victory, he returned to the debunked claim that Georgia Republicans’ election integrity legislation resulted in racist voter suppression.
Voter turnout actually set records in the 2022 Senate runoff, and Warnock won. But the whining continued.
“There are those who would look at the outcome of this race and say there’s no voter suppression in Georgia,” Warnock told his supporters Tuesday night. “Let me be clear: Just because people endured long lines that wrapped around buildings — some blocks long — just because they endured the rain and the cold and all kinds of tricks in order to vote, doesn’t mean that voter suppression does not exist,” Warnock insisted. “It simply means that you the people have decided that your voices will not be silenced.”
Warnock failed to give any specific allegations of actual voter suppression, he could only make the flimsy claim that “all kinds of tricks” were employed to prevent Georgians from casting ballots.
Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger noted during the runoff campaign, Peach State voters set the record for the “largest early voting day” in Georgia history.
It seems that one of the reasons Democrats were charging voter suppression is that the lines were longer at polling locations. Huh?
The bottom line here is that it is just not great form for the one who won the election to make charges that undermine the election. That is just plain stupid.
Can we have another runoff because the winner is not being smart?
This last piece in the midterm puzzle is the perfect way to end an election cycle that we need to just forget every happened.
