Fight for Senate control awaits in Georgia after Biden's win
WASHINGTON (AP) — Control of the Senate likely won’t be decided until a January runoff in Georgia, even after Democrat Joe Biden won the White House on Saturday. That post-election cliff-hanger will determine the balance of power in Washington, as neither party appears to have a lock on a Senate majority right now. So far, the tally for the next Senate is 48 Republicans and 48 Democrats after Tuesday’s election. Two seats in Georgia are hea ...

Senate Control Likely Decided By Fate Of 2 Georgia Runoff Races
Control of the Senate may hinge on Georgia's two runoff races in January as no candidate in either contest has reached a required 50% threshold in votes to win outright. That means Georgia, which is also still counting ballots in a neck-and-neck presidential race expected to go to a recount, is shaping up to be ground zero for whether Congress will be divided again next year. "All eyes will be on Georgia for the next two months," Emory Univ ...

The election that broke the Republican Party
Never has the unprecedented been so utterly predictable. At the conclusion of a campaign that exceeded their expectations in almost every sense — picking up House seats, thwarting an outright Democratic takeover of the Senate, running competitively in every presidential battleground state — Republicans could have walked away from 2020 with some dignity intact. They could have conceded defeat to Joe Biden, celebrated their hard-fought successes ...

Biden took the lead in Georgia this morning. Here's what else you need to know

Ballots are still being counted in several key states, with elections officials expec ...

What if he doesn't concede? The US presidential tradition explained.
When a candidate loses a U.S. presidential election, tradition holds the candidate promptly and publicly acknowledges defeat in a concession speech to help with the peaceful transition of power. The speeches, while difficult for a candidate, are typically gracious celebrations of American democracy. The Chicago Tribune and Arizona Republic opinion columns have held up John McCain's concession to Barack Obama in 2008 as an example of the tradi ...

The MAGA bullhorn shouts Trump's baseless claims of fraud
On Tuesday afternoon, the MAGA internet was quiet at best, bitter at worst. By Wednesday, it was crowing and chest-thumping about voter fraud and the establishment’s destruction, flooding social media with viral — and incorrect — accusations of electoral theft. What started as a day of uncharacteristic restraint for President Donald Trump’s supporters on Tuesday quickly turned into a round of “I told you so” admonishments as it became clear ...

Race to 270 is a nail-biter
Nebraska and Maine are the only two states that apportion some of their electoral votes based on how each congressional district votes. That means that while four of Nebraska's five electoral votes heavily favor the GOP, one of them — awarded to the presidential candidate that wins the Omaha-based 2nd District — is in play. (So is Maine's 2nd district, which is more competitive than the Democratic-leaning state overall.) Both the Biden and Tr ...
