Why the Georgia Senate Run-Off Election Should Matter to Us All

December 14, 2020

Starting this month, Georgia voters will head to the polls once again to vote in a run-off election for two seats in the U.S. Senate.

But make no mistake, this election doesn’t only affect Georgia voters. It will impact us all.

You see, the run-off election in Georgia will determine control of the U.S. Senate. Currently, Republicans hold 50 seats and Democrats hold 48. If Republicans win one or both, they will retain control of the Senate. If the Democrats win both seats, the Republicans and Democrats would each hold 50 seats. And in the event of a 50-50 tie, the vice president casts the tiebreaking vote. If that tiebreaking vote is Kamala Harris, it would mean a Democrat-controlled Senate as well.

Democrats already control the U.S. House of Representatives, and if Joe Biden is inaugurated, they will control the executive branch as well. A Democrat-controlled Senate would give Democrats trifecta control of the government—that is, control of both houses of Congress and the presidency—thus empowering the Biden Administration to push through an agenda with significant implications to issues regarding the sanctity of life and religious freedom in America.

Here are just a few of his campaign promises that could impact issues you care about.

On top of that, proposals to expand the U.S. Supreme Court could much more easily become reality. That could dramatically affect the outcome of many legal cases.

No matter whether you live in Georgia, we encourage you to learn about the issues at stake in this runoff election and where each candidate stands. Alliance Defending Freedom has put together a voting guide to help you do just that. And please pray that God’s will be done for this election on January 5.

Check out the ADF voter guide to better understand where the Georgia Senate candidates stand on these issues.
