What if those two Democrats in GA prevail?

The Senate is now 50/50 who is the 'majority leader?

1. VP Harris would break a tie

Under Bush/Cheney, a co-majority leader situation existed briefly but the Repubs controlled parliamentary procedures as they held the Executive.

I'd say FUCK McConnell. NO sharing

2. The VP breaks the tie so the party of the VP is the majority and names the majority leader.

Presumably at this point that would be Harris and thus the Democratic party is the majority and the leader is whoever they want.

3. Very simply: the Dems control the Senate

This is why these 2 elections are CRITICAL.

4. Chuck Schumer, I would presume.

5. What they said, but the VP will not be inaugurated until Jan 20.

Pence is the tie-breaker until then, I believe.

That said, I’m not sure both GA Senate candidates will win. I hope they do, but Warnock’s opponents combined are over 50%.
