Democrats got millions more votes – so how did Republicans win the Senate?

The will of the people is decidedly not being served.

Rick Scott Accuses Democrats of Trying to Thwart G.O.P.’s Successful Voter Suppression

Quote:
TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA (The Borowitz Report)—In a hastily called press conference on Thursday evening, Florida Governor Rick Scott accused Democrats of nefariously plotting to undo the Republican Party’s highly successful voter-suppression effort.

“As Republicans, we have worked tirelessly to intimidate, discourage, and otherwise disenfranchise millions of Florida voters,” a visibly enraged Scott said. “We are not about to let Democrats swoop in at the last minute and ruin all of that fine work.”

Scott angrily singled out the Broward County and Palm Beach County supervisors for their “rampant enforcement of the right to vote.”

“They are literally finding votes by people we are a hundred per cent sure we had scared away from the voting booths,” he said. “This will not stand.”

The Florida governor said that if Democrats think that they can undermine the Republicans’ arduous and painstaking efforts to suppress votes in Florida, “they better think again.”

“I will not sit idly by while every vote is counted,” Scott said. “This is Florida, goddammit.”

Kyrsten Sinema has flipped Jeff Flake’s Senate seat to the Democrats

News organizations are finally calling this one. Donny and Senate Repubes did their worst to slime this, but Jeff Flake’s seat will now be occupied by a Dem.

Ca 10th district flipped. Republican incumbent Jeff Denham ousted by Democrat, Josh Harder. This is deep red farming country straddling the 5 Fwy and Ca. 99, Stanislaus and San Joaquin counties.


In other news, Republican incumbent, Mimi Walters is now losing her seat to Democrat Katie Porter in the 45th district here in Orange county.

Not too far south of here. I had to endure Denham's despicable ads, just lie after lie. Harder took the high road, glad it worked!
