Since I know it will be brought up, no I'm not saying that republicans are alone in gerrymandering. Both sides do it when they have the chance.
What does Gerrymandering have to do with a statewide election?

Bottom line... you're gonna have to do better than RFO. As a former long-time Texan, it's baffles me that he got as many votes as he did.

Well, that is what makes horse races for it baffles me how anyone could see the leading, non seated opposer as good news.


EDIT: SORRY! It just hit me that you were talking about the opposer.......having seen that nick name around so much, I forgot about those initials and though it was another politicalspeak.

What are you talking about? The senate in Georgia went blue. The house went overwhelmingly red despite picking a democratic senator and voting for Biden. It’s not rocket science. Gerrymandering is done to help parties get seats. What don’t you understand?

Rather makes them or at least their campaigns a bad investment, doesn't it?

They picked a Democrat senator because the republican candidate was a joke. The governor race wasn’t even close.

Georgia results wasnt the result of gerrymandering. Pretty much all their statewide seats won by a larger margin this time, including governor (50k difference in 2018, 300k difference yesterday). Walker and Warnock also going to a runoff.
