Warnock collects $17.2M, Walker $6.2M
in Georgia Senate race

Original Article

ATLANTA - Republican Herschel Walker’s $6.2 million in fundraising looked impressive when unveiled Wednesday, until Democrat Raphael Warnock rolled out his $17.2 million total a half-hour later. The dueling Senate campaign numbers underlined two truths. Georgia is again going to be one of the most expensive races to run for office in 2022, and Democrats are building a strong fundraising advantage. Like Warnock, Democrat Stacey Abrams heavily outraised incumbent Republican Brian Kemp in the race for governor, collecting almost $50 million compared to the $31 million Kemp has brought in over a longer period. Abrams and Warnock plan to run closely linked campaigns, echoing many of the same themes.


Looks like Herschel may need some help. Kemp will probably be OK, and that's a good thing. The last thing we need if for Abrams to be in charge of GA's voting process going forward.

It's to be expected. Heavy DNC, coastal, and Hollywood money flowing in for Warnock. Walker supporters are average citizens of lesser means. Money doesn't decide elections, as many a candidate has discovered.

Herschel Walker's down. Oz in down in PA by 9 to his heart patient opponent still staying in his basement. If we can't keep the Senate, expect Gavin Newsom to be president this time next year. Why? Expect Biden to resign after the election, with Kamala sworn in. Once a Democrat Senate is in place, and uses its minimum one vote advantage, Newsom will be the new VP. I don't know what minuet the Democrats will then play to change partners at the top, but I suspect they do.

No doubt the Democrats are pumping in a lot of out of state cash to try to save Warnock.

Re: #2. I stand corrected: Section 2 of the Twenty-fifth Amendment provides that "whenever there is a vacancy in the office of the Vice President, the President shall nominate a Vice President who shall take office upon confirmation by a majority vote of both Houses of Congress."

Most likely George Soros cash. Soros is spending his entire fortune at a record pace to ensure he sees the demise of America before he dies. We MUST deny him this twisted pleasure and when he passes, he will know his goal of destroying America FAILED bigly!

Neither candidate is fit to be senator. Georgia chooses its leaders from the bottom, and rejects anything at the top of the barrel, preferring rotten food to delicacies.

I wonder how much of the Democrats sudden rise in donations comes from Zuckerberg, Soros and the rest of the Millionaires. All that money won't help if the VOTERS won't vote for Stacey or Warnock! Money talks, but it doesn't go to the Polls on Election day!

Laid out here is why politics is as it is. Two state races, over $200 MILLION being spent, with more coming undoubtedly. And those around here wonder why incumbents are 1) hard to defeat, and 2) why term limits don't pass into law. Take a look at competitive seats in your state's legislature and see what it takes to be "competitive"...and then ask where the average concerned citizen is going to raise that money from. The system is rigged virtually from top to bottom, not only the cost but ballot access. In the end the UNIPARTY wins out.

Republican pollster Rick Shaftan is like a lot of political junkies: He looks to his mother for hints on what real America is thinking. Lately, their talks have been about former President Donald Trump and whether he should run again. SNIP Of course, Trump does make some news, but it's mostly complaining about the 2020 election results and cheering on some 140 GOP candidates he has endorsed for 2022 who have won so far. But for the 2024 race, Shaftan’s mother and millions of other Republicans are starting to look past Trump to others more engaged on problems shocking the nation and taking on President Joe Biden.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has closed the gap significantly between himself and Donald Trump in a hypothetical matchup in 2024, bringing him within single digits of the former president. Among registered Republican voters, about 45% said they would vote for Trump compared to 36% who leaned toward DeSantis, according to the most recent YouGov/Yahoo News poll, a 9-point difference and the closest any challenger has ever gotten to the former president in a GOP primary poll. The most recent numbers tighten previous polls that showed DeSantis trailing by 16 points in February and 23 points the month before that.

Former White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson’s Tuesday testimony ought to ring the death knell for former President Donald Trump’s political career. Trump is unfit to be anywhere near power ever again. Hutchinson’s resume alone should establish her credibility. The 25-year-old had already worked at the highest levels of conservative Republican politics, including in the offices of Sen. Ted Cruz (TX) and House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (LA), before becoming a top aide for former Trump chief of staff Mark Meadows.

Based on a casual reading of the polls, Donald Trump looks to have smooth sailing to the Republican presidential nomination in 2024 and the chance to erase the stink of losing to Joe Biden that he so covets. But if that’s the case, why does Trump seem so panicky these days? Simple: Trump is in trouble, and — when you dig into the numbers — his grip on the GOP nomination is getting more tenuous. It is Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) who has all the momentum.

"So, the question is about gas prices and inflation, you know what I could do, if you could give me a time machine to go back to January 2021, we would just do the opposite of what Biden has done, and we'd be in a better spot," said DeSantis. "Now. I mean, I really think it's, he's got a lot of chutzpah to attack energy producers, when he campaigned saying he was going to shut down energy production in the United States."

WASHINGTON (AP) — Nearly a year since its inception, the House committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol will go public with its findings starting this week as lawmakers hope to show the American public how democracy came to the brink of disaster. The series of hearings that will take place over the next several weeks begin with a prime-time session Thursday night in which the nine-member panel plans to give an overview of its 11-month investigation. More than 1,000 people have been interviewed by the panel, and only snippets of that testimony have been revealed to the public, mostly through court filings.

Three months ago in our quarterly list of the top 10 most likely Democratic candidates for president in 2024, we changed things up. For a while, we had been ranking only the candidates not named Joe Biden. In the seemingly unlikely scenario he didn’t run again, the idea was, here’s who would be next in line. But that scenario seemed to be growing more likely, so we decided to also include Biden on the list. The reason: There might come a time when the incumbent president isn’t the most likely nominee the next time around, for whatever reason. And his

The conservative radio legend, who died in February 2021, snapped up the 24,000-square-foot main house on Palm Beach's North Ocean Boulevard for $3.9 million in 1998, and has since bought up four neighboring properties to build a 2.7-acre estate, with an asking price of between $150 million and $175 million.
