Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden appears to have won against incumbent president Donald Trump, but the political fight is far from over.
Despite all the media hype surrounding a potential blue wave sweeping across Congress and state houses nationwide, Democrats laid an egg. Republicans have picked up House seats, Democrats failed to take the Senate, and many state legislatures have stayed in Republican hands.
That said, there lies an immediate challenge ahead. Georgia Senate seats are going to a January runoff. On one hand, Democrat Raphael Warnock will square off against Republican Senator Kelly Loeffler. For the other Senate race, Democrat challenger Jon Ossoff will try to unseat incumbent Senator David Perdue. It’s no exaggeration to say that these races will be high stakes. If Democrats come out victorious, they control the Senate by virtue of a 50-50 split along with Vice President Kamala Harris being the tiebreaker. In the case that they end up failing to flip the seats, any of Biden’s most ambitious policy items will be put on hold for the time being.
