Bevan: Republicans’ ‘slight favorites’ to win two Georgia Senate runoff elections

The next US Senate run-off election in Georgia is unlikely to produce a split decision, RealClearPolitics co-founder Tom Bevan told Bill Hemmer Reports on Wednesday.

Bevan added to host Rick Leventhal that he did the GOP Sens. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue “light favorites” to be returned to Washington, denying Democrats the smallest possible majority in the upper house of Congress.

Georgia Republican Governor Brian Kemp asked his party voters to return to the polls on January 5, although many Republican observers fear that Republicans lost confidence in the state’s electoral system after Democrat Joe Biden narrowly won President Trump’s Georgia in the November election.

Bevan noted that there were 50,000 new voters voting in Georgia this time, and added that it is not clear whether they are supporting Republicans or Democrats.

“If these are Republicans who did not attend Georgia, there are more Republicans than Democrats in Georgia. It is still a red state,” said Bevan.

“If the new voters are Republicans, that bodes well for David Purdue and Kelly Loeffler. If, however, they are Democrats, you know, I think it’s a package. I don’t think you’ll see these two seats split. one way or the other. “

Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger has warned of legal action against anyone who wants to move illegally to Georgia to register to vote in the second round, as was encouraged by several liberal activists and Hollywood celebrities.


Meanwhile, Bevan said, Trump is guilty of sending “mixed messages” to Republican Party voters.

“Georgia Republicans [are] concerned about the idea that there may be a small number who will decide ‘I thought the last vote was rigged. Why waste my time this time? ‘”, He said.
