I'm Charlie harder as the nation awaits the results of the Georgia Senate elections. There's also the matter of Congress convening Wednesday and counting the electoral college votes. Local Republican strategist Randy Peple says the Georgia vote looks close. Well traditionally run off elections in the deep South have favored Republicans because after you get past the general election turnout drops Republican voters were more committed to turn out, then we're Democrat voters in past special elections or run off elections that you've seen in the South in the last few decades. It's all about turnout right now, who gets their voters there to the polls is really gonna matter for the Republican side because Democrats have done a much better job of getting their voters to vote early. Local Democratic strategist Kathy Allen agrees. I do agree that usually a southern runoff is usually bad force. Democrats. But the fact is, is that we have 100,000 votes that are now already banked of new voters that did not vote in the actual November election. I think it's excited. I'm not short that you're big on Changing history with this, but I am more confident than I've ever been in the southern election in January. For sure. On Wednesday, Congress certifies the electoral college vote. Apple, The Republican says he doesn't expect the race to be overturned despite the efforts of Republicans in the House and Senate. Well, I think, Charlie, this is a media story. This is a media creation. Absolutely nothing is gonna happen Wednesday. Other than a lot of hot talk, that's all and at the end of the day Joe Biden will have his Electoral college victory confirmed he points to failed efforts in 4004 and 2016 by Democrats who tried to raise objections. But Peple and Alan are both strategists, and we asked him to contemplate different scenarios. Alan, the Democrats says. Whether the races in Georgia are called will be important. Worst case scenario is that we know by the close of business that the two Democrats have taken over and then at that point, what happens is that Mitch McConnell says the only hope we have is to go ahead and make this As long as possible, and he changes his mind and goes back to the side of the forces of evil here and aligns himself with what's going on there. But if the races are still too close to call by the time Congress is called to order Wednesday, Mitch McConnell's not sure what's gonna happen to him, and so he stays shut up and we end up getting it over as we look at the likelihood of a possible Democratic takeover of the United States. Senate couple is a Republican. But he says there is no evidence of any widespread wrongdoing in the presidential race. It could happen. Charlie is for this to last beyond Wednesday for the charade to continue the United States Senate and the U. S House haven't opportunity to put a stake through part of this vampire that we're calling the contested election. And they need to do that on Wednesday. So the worst cases is if they're still debating about it in the winds into Thursday morning, and it's just dragging on and continuing, he says. Though there is a possibility things go quickly Wednesday that it actually gets shut down within an hour. The 12 Republicans in the U. S Senate that wanna raise objections fund raise Your objections. Put some evidence forward. You don't have any and all 12 of them can say that they have objections. None of them has any evidence to overturn the election, and hopefully that Comes out. That's the best case scenario.
