    Well, it's a loss. Prior to this it took only Joe or Sinema to block some of their wilder schemes, now, it will take both, and neither are dependable protectors of our basic rights.

    And with 51 seats, Kamala can rise to the presidency without costing Dems control of the Senate. It's unfortunate, but, it's done, and we have to move forward.

    How long had Hillary lived in New York before she ran for Senator?

    I had no hope that Walker would win, so I have no disappointment. The Senate still needs the House.

    Anyone who thinks that voters still matter or that elections are legitimately conducted are out of their ever loving minds...

    Anyone who thinks that Republicans would actually do anything meaningful with any power if they ever obtained it are out of their ever loving minds...

    The DNC is all about obtaining power/control over us and the RNC is all about obtaining money from us. Plain and simple.

    Neither one of them likes us working class peasants one single iota. They are both against us. MAGA is our movement. Without MAGA, we have no representation.

    You hoped that we'd be afflicted with Herschel and his extreme politics and stupidity?

    Thanks a lot.

    And those who whine about this just because they lost are still incapable of providing any kind of evidence.

    An excellent point!

    Thanks for reminding us all of just how important that 3,000,000 vote victory and those 9 seats were in the House Elections!

    Why were the Georgia 2022 results from yesterday known yesterday night instead of taking days upon days upon days like the 2020 results took?

    You are the one posting how long someone lived in the state before running I merely pointed out another prominent person. Apparently the SecState believe he met the residency requirements that is not your call.

    Because counting happens. The more votes and the closer the votes and the most complicated the process the longer it takes . . . as in every election we've ever had. But that's a cute excuse for not being able to provide any actual evidence.

    The Republicans won't do anything with it, per usual. RINOs will continue to RINO. They'll hold "hearings" and "investigations", perform a bunch of Kabuki theater, pretend to be an opposition party, but in the end nothing meaningful will ever come of it. We will continue our purposeful self-inflicted downfall in the name of "Climate Change".

    hahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha TOO funny.

    There is no reason why one (s)election should take days upon days upon days to count all the "votes" and another (s)election can be "counted" within the same night.

    It often takes time to count votes. That has been the case for our country's entire history. We've never had all votes counted in the same night for a presidential election. Ever. At all.

    There is this.

    The Senate needs the House and vice versa. Ain't our system of checks and balances great!

    I can't read what you say, only what you've written.

    You wanted that imbecile to win. Admit it.

    What in the actual eff are you referring to? The Dems aren't running imbeciles who claim that they're living in states other than the state they're trying to represent. Try using facts for a change.

    I agree. Walker had no chance at all. When you see the Republican down in the polls, there no chance for an upset. I made it a point not to look at Fox News last night because all they were going to do was harp on that stupid election.

    There are multiple reasons. States independently conduct their elections, and differ in their methodologies. What is vital in not expediency, but accuracy, no matter how long it requires. Once the results have been counted and certified, the loser still has the option of requesting recounts, audits, and court challenges. Once those votes have been exhausted, the loser must accept reality.

    That basic respect for democracy inspired the peaceful transfer of power that distinguished the nation from 1789 until 2021, and patriots are determined that it will be restored.
