Political Rewind: State Races Reflect National Dialogue — Which May Lead To Two Runoffs
Thursday on Political Rewind: Could Georgia be in for two Senate runoff elections? Political analysts have long considered an eventual runoff likely in the free-for-all race for the seat currently held by Gov. Kemp-appointee Sen. Kelly Loeffler.
But polling now shows the race between Democrat Jon Ossoff and incumbent Republican Sen. David Perdue in a virtual tie. Support behind the Libertarian Party candidate could prevent any candidate in that race going over the 50% mark on Election Day.
And as larger than normal turnout continues in Georgia’s in-person early voting period, the Secretary of State promises solutions to significant problems slowing the voting process at locations across the state. As of yesterday, nearly 1 million ballots have been cast in the first three days of early voting or with an absentee ballot.
