Herschel saw his name next to "wrong johnson" and thought he was about to get out of a paternity claim.  Nope, sorry, was your johnson.

"There's no bigger tell that Senate Republicans are saddled with a roster of deeply flawed candidates than the fact that the head of their campaign arm squirms like a fish out of water when asked to try and defend them," said Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committees spokesman Eli Cousin. "Sunday shows should book Rick Scott every weekend."

lol

I don't know what Subby is on about.

Right now it's a 50-50 Senate, so someone needs a net flip.

Walker losing isn't a net for anyone.

Oz and Portman losing would be D +2, but Kelly and Cortez-Masto are not insurmountable flips for R +2.

So any scenario in which Walker and either (but not both) Oz or Portman lose, but Kelly and Cortez-Masto also lose is enough for the Republicans. Plus a whole slew of possibilities if Walker wins and either Kelly or Cortez-Masto loses.

I wish we had voting rights passed so the composition of Congress could be determined by a fair election, but apparently Manchin and Sinema are on "our side", so no civil rights for voters, just let the Republicans use biased laws to stop/hinder non-Republicans from voting in Republican run states and hope we can somehow "outvote" voting suppression.

Walker voter here. I'm voting for Walker because we have a lot in common. My brain is damaged beyond repair and my father left my mother and I when I was young. Also, like myself, he's angry about things he makWalker.

I'm voting Hersham Walker.

Hey, you left out Ohio!

And that's...okay.   I want to, too.  Had did we ever get stuck with Ohio, anyway.  Puerto Rico sitting right there, but no, we gotta have Toledo and farking Youngstown, like can't live without, ffs.

You also have multiple children you had no part in raising, despite bemoaning fatherless homes, right?

I remember polling in 2020 showing a tight race for Lindsey "my word" Graham and Susan "I'm concerned" Collins too.

But they've already built up their base to expect to retake the Senate, so if they don't - say it with me - VOTER FRAUD THE ELECTION IS RIGGED ETC ETC ETC.

Repeat for all other future elections they lose.

Another Walker voter here...I agree with this, Walker is speaking from experience and we want experience politicians in the senate.

I have no faith in the American voter or election system. I assume the GQP will retake the Housr and Senate and the first of many sham impeachments will begin at the end of January 2023.
People will ask "what is this impeachment for?".  The answer will eventually be "because the Republicans could".

I saw some people down by the river and I said "What are you guys doing?" They said "Burning Herschel Walker ballots.  George Soros paid us $10 a ballot to burn these.  We're making hundreds of thousands of dollars."  And there was a freedom eagle watching and it had tears in its eyes.

I'm a Johnson voter. Wisconsin borne and bred.. me just sound off here a bit, whydontya? I'm voting for Ron Johnson because vegan sausage doesn't belong on American menus. I didn't lose my left foot to diabetes so American farmers can make money selling plants. Thanks for your time.
Vote Johnson

That would actually be good news. 2 years of the House and Senate wasting time with impeachments.

Senate control is important for Dems to get judicial nominees and appointments through.

But still nothing legislative will happen if the GOP takes the house through their illegally laid plans of election interference.

Val Demmings is also pulling slightly closer to Marco.  It's still an uphill battle, but no one has been this close to Rubio in a while.  Some polls have her within 2 points.

Something about the way he's crossing his arms looks really weird. I don't know if that's real or biatch eating crackers but he looks extremely posed and self-conscious.

Walker will easily get the majority of the redneck vote, simply because he's a football player - a "coachable black" as my wife's grandfather would have said if he was alive today. For rural white Georgians, Warnock represents something  they are unfamiliar with, an educated black man who can articulate his views.

I'm right of center on some issues, and I would prefer Warnock (as much as I personally dislike him) over Walker (as much as I like the guy outside of politics). Walker is likeable, but dumb as a fence post. I feel like Warnock and I could probably debate back and forth on ideas, and agree to shake hands at the end and respect our differences.

/Don't tell my wife, but I'll vote Warnock and Flowers
//Not voting Walker or MTG

Nonsense. He probably held a gun when he served in the a foreign army.

Ron Johnson wants to win, he should be sending his constituents flowers, perhaps with a signed card "Memories of you, Ron Johnson."
