But we needed the senate. Really needed the senate. What does the number sit at now?

Anyone knows? I am so disappointed Graham, Ernst got it and looking like Collins. We got Kelly. Co. dude, that is two. So that takes us to 49/51? Not good. We lose healthcare at that.

There should have been a FULL COURT PRESS to KEEP Doug Jones in Alabama. Period! Money was WASTED on Jamie Harrison. Those are the FACTS.

9. One Republican vote might as well be 100. Also it is 48 not 49.

Republicans picked up Alabama (expected but they still picked it up).

One short might as well be twenty short.

But who would be the new McCain?

We need two others and that seems unlikely.

Is going to be tight. Don't count on it. Peters should have done better BEFORE Detroit was counted. Peters needs prayers at this point. Real Talk.

You are right. The two run offs are going to be the most expensive Senate races in history.

19. Right now, give me Biden and I'll take 51/49 in Senate. At least Biden can reverse executive orders

and issue others. Getting nominations through will be hell, but maybe we'll have to compromise on some other issues to move forward. Not what I hoped for, but . . . . . .

25. So, if there is nothing we can do about that -- which is the case -- we take what we can get and

move on. Not my preference either, but it's infinitely better than trump as Prez and McConnell doing the same crud.

But if we donít and Biden gets elected, he can do a lot of good. Repeal all Trumps EOs, choose a competent Cabinet and rebuild the DOJ.
