The Week

(Roman Genn)

• The way it works this winter is that if a groundhog sees its shadow, Joe Biden will come up above ground.

• Republicans put up two weak candidates in a competitive state, and then discouraged their voters from showing up. Relying on conspiracy theories and falsehoods, President Trump and many Republicans who felt compelled to play along with him encouraged the state’s conservative voters to think that their votes would not be fairly counted, and that Georgia Republicans were shirking their duty to protect election integrity. The result was losing both Georgia Senate seats, and thus control of the Senate.
