Eyes Turn to Georgia–and Impact of Democratic Control on Turnout in the Run Off

Atlanta Journal Constitution reports on the how the Walker and Warnock campaigns are reacting to the news that Democrats have maintained their 50 seats in the Senate. The Warnock campaign is urging early voting and its allies are reframing the “race as a crucial 51st vote to better insulate Democrats from the whims of U.S. Sens. Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona.” Meanwhile, the Walker campaign is clearly worried that it will be difficult to turnout Republicans now that the Senate is not in play. This seems reasonable since I would have thought they should already have been a little concerned about turnout given Brian Kemp won handily. Meanwhile, the AP reports on how the narrower window for early voting works and its potential impact on Democratic turnout.
