Wake up call for republicans (a must see!)

Insight into the "Warnock - Perdue" republican voters in Georgia

Why Some Georgia Voters Split Their Ballots Between Democrats And Republicans

"It didn't seem like there was a lot of daylight in terms of policy in terms of their stances on Trump, in terms of what they do for Georgia between David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler," said Bernard Fraga, a political scientist at Emory University. "So the fact that a relatively small number of Republican voters were willing to vote for David Perdue but not Kelly Loeffler is an interesting phenomenon."

Nathan Muller is one of these Georgians who saw daylight between the candidates where campaign strategists designed there to be none.

"...(Loeffler's) messaging was just so, you know, bang, bang, bang the drum for Trump. 'More conservative than Attila the Hun' ... Like, are you nuts?" Muller said, referring to a series of ads the Loeffler campaign released, which featured an actor dressed up as the barbaric ruler from the 400s.

I know this is old news considering the insurrection that occurred, but I'm glad NPR did this story. I think it's important to clarify what happened since some were trying to suggest that the vote differences were a result of black anti-semitism. When you look at the vote totals, it's evident that Perdue received around 20k more votes than Loeffler, which is about the same margin between Warnock and Ossoff. It's really interesting, since those republicans could have abstained from voting in the Warnock-Loeffler race, which would have made it appear as though 20k voters only voted for 1 candidate.

I wish pence could be impeached too. He could end this crisis right now, if he wanted to

but he's cowering in a corner somewhere... avoiding calls and still covering for the guy who tried to have him killed.

I fully understand that attempting to impeach pence right now would be foolish and unsuccessful.
