Worst case in Senate

It comes down to depending on the fairness of Georgia elections under Kemp. And Walker wins after trump and Graham spend the next month in Georgia harvesting Ballot's. GQP gets 51 in senate. “Watch how fast the filibuster dies” and will not be used for the next 2 years. By then voting rights are abolished and states Legislative control of elections goes through.
Come on Arizona and Nevada. Make Walker useless. And how the fuck is he even able to be a white tool.

veto power. The advantage of no filibuster is when the president's party controls the House and the Senate, but has far from 60 votes.

The biggest problem if we lose the Senate is confirming any judges. If we lose the House, it will be hard to pass anything.

We may not get anything passed, but “Joe can Veto”. A big concern Is the debt ceiling and budgets, if GQP hold us hostage by shutting down government for SS, Medicare death or other sick plans to kill middle class and poor.

okay go Arizona gets as governor is anyone’s guess, but I think senate was a better bet for Dems regardless, and Nevada still has urban to count for mail.

If nothing else, we have to have the Senate, winning governorships are a bonus at this point.

But having to depend on Arizona, Nevada and Georgia elections being not corrupted with suppression and all GQP shenanigans is scary. And now the Dark money can be laser focused on three seats. But Also, last night May have shinned a light on the virus of trump, so if he thinks he can go there to stump, he may not be welcomed. But if Lake pulls this off for Gov, that shows trump is still very welcome in Arizona. (Even after pissing on McCains grave) She is trump 4.0, with looks and skills. (He has neither)
Seeing Wisconsin re-elect Johnson after he openly said SS should be on the block every year, says nothing will stop the GQP cult. Texas, Florida, Georgia, Wisconsin and others, tell me there are really really stupid people in MurkKKa. And we want to tear down education even more.
One on Senate🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏
