“The reason that the balance of power is important is it requires a president, and for that matter a House, to do some things that require some bipartisanship,"Huckabee ha detto.
“We’ve seen what happens if one party has everything. They just run ram-shod over, not just the other party, but over the American people, half of whom may not agree with those policies.
“So that’s why it becomes an important thing to the American people to have some balance, to have a firewall, to have some semblance of saying, 'Hey, you guys may have won the election slightly, but you didn’t win over half the American population, and you shouldn’t just ignore them,'" Lui continuò.
“So we’ll find out whether or not the people of Georgia help America have that firewall.”
The state’s twin Senato runoff elections will take place on Jan. 5, where the Republican majority in the Senate is at stake. Democrats won control of the lower chamber again, even though Republicans picked up seats in the Camera dei rappresentanti with not a single incumbent candidate losing their race.
L'attuale equilibrio di potere per il prossimo Senato che uscirà dalle elezioni di questo mese è 50 Repubblicani e 48 Democratici. Ciò significa che i democratici devono vincere entrambe le elezioni di ballottaggio in Georgia per poter vincere 50-50 Senato. Se ciò accade, Vicepresidente eletto Kamala Harris would be the tie-breaking vote, dando alla sua festa una maggioranza sottile come un rasoio nella camera.
In Georgia, dove la legge statale impone un ballottaggio se nessun candidato arriva 50% del voto, Senatore David Perdue narrowly missed avoiding a runoff, vincente 49.75% del voto. Lo sfidante democratico Jon Ossoff si allontana più o meno 87,000 voti.
Nell'altra gara, Suo. Kelly Loeffler captured nearly 26% del voto in un'enorme elezione speciale di 20 candidati per riempire gli ultimi due anni del mandato dell'ex GOP Sen. Johnny Isakson. The Democratic candidate in the runoff, Rev. Raphael Warnock, won nearly 33% of the vote in the first round.
Huckabee referenced the Rolling Stones song “You Can’t Always Get What You Want,” saying the title is “really the rule of politics.”
“If you get everything you want all the time, it leads to corruption," Egli ha detto. “The best government is a government that requires both sides to give a little, sit down, negotiate, work things out because the American interest is not just one radical point of view. There are many points of view.”
“And if you have that divided government, I’ll be honest with you, gridlock is better than a runaway train," Lui continuò. “So that’s why this Georgia Senate race becomes so important.”
“Gridlock keeps us from doing stupid things that happen if a party gets arrogant and thinks they don’t have to be accountable to anybody,"Ha sottolineato.
