“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 said.
“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, '嘿, 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,’” he continued.
“So we’ll find out whether or not the people of Georgia help America have that firewall.”
The state’s twin 参议院 runoff elections will take place on Jan. 5, 在哪里 Republican majority in the Senate is at stake. Democrats won control of the lower chamber again, even though Republicans picked up seats in the 众议院 with not a single incumbent candidate losing their race.
本月大选产生的下一届参议院当前的权力平衡是 50 共和党人和 48 民主党人. 这意味着民主党必须赢得佐治亚州的两次径直选举，才能使其成为 50-50 参议院. 如果发生这种情况, Vice President-elect 卡马拉·哈里斯 would be the tie-breaking vote, 使她的政党在众议院中占多数.
在格鲁吉亚, 如果没有候选人到达，州法律规定了径流 50% 投票, 参议员 大卫·珀杜（David Perdue） 几乎错过了避免径流, 获胜 49.75% 投票. 民主挑战者乔恩·奥索夫（Jon Ossoff）落后大约 87,000 票数.
在其他种族, 它的. 凯莉·洛夫勒（Kelly Loeffler） 几乎捕获 26% 填补前共和党参议员任期的最后两年的20名候选人的特别选举中的投票结果. 约翰尼·伊萨克森（Johnny Isakson）. 径流中的民主党候选人, 转速. 拉斐尔·沃诺克, 几乎赢了 33% 第一轮投票.
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,“ 他说. “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,“ 他继续. “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,他强调.
