Fate of US Senate may be decided in runoff

US Senate news

Key races in three states will determine which party controls the upper chamber of Congress.

The United States Senate remains up for grabs as the 2022 midterm elections draw to a close, with several races still undecided and a runoff vote likely set next month in Georgia, which could become a tie-breaker that hands a majority to one of the two major parties.

Though the Democrats gained a Senate seat in Pennsylvania after Lieutenant Governor John Fetterman beat out Republican Mehmet Oz, three states will now decide the fate of the upper house: Arizona, Nevada and Georgia.

Republican candidate Adam Laxalt currently holds the lead in Nevada, while Democrat Mark Kelly is ahead of the pack in Arizona. However, with many more votes left to count, both races have been deemed too early to call.

Georgia, meanwhile, is headed for a runoff contest on December 6, as both Democratic incumbent Raphael Warnock and GOP challenger Herschel Walker failed to reach a 50% threshold needed to win outright.

Should members of both parties each take Nevada and Arizona, Georgia’s runoff would then decide whether Republicans or Democrats hold a majority in the Senate. The chamber was evenly divided before the midterms, leaving Vice President Kamala Harris – who presides over the Senate – to break ties on split votes.

  1. Go to ‘The Hal Turner Show’ online, and see the New York Gubernatorial’s ‘CUT AND PASTING OF THE SAME ELECTION NUMBERS IN MANY COUNTIES THERE!
    THAT is a criminal Offence!!!
    Americans living in Oz & Aotearoa; call your Consulate General (09-303-2724) and , the US Embassy (04-462-6000), and DEMAND an immediate nullification of the election results in New York State, and also the fact that the voting machines which malfunctioned were cleverly placed in Conservative areas of Nevada and Arizona to cause votes to be mis-read and / or changed or nullified.
    Demand also that the County Sheriffs seize the machines, and in New York, that the Sheriffs in those counties move in and investigate why votes were the same in many counties via ‘cut and paste’!
    Then, the Sheriff has the sworn duty to arrest the New York State Gubernatorial Staff and Election Supervisors!
    Some conservative voters moved to the areas that were Blue Counties in their State, and voted for Republicans in Democrat-sponsored areas.
