National Right to Life will be heavily involved in two Senate run-off elections in Georgia

Published on

Control of the United States Senate will be decided January 5th by two run-off elections in Georgia.

After the November 3rd elections, there are 48 Republican senators and 48 Democrat senators. While there are still outstanding ballots to be counted, Republicans are expected to prevail in Alaska and North Carolina, raising their total to 50 senators.

Were Joe Biden to become President, Democrats would have to win both runoffs in the Peach State. With a 50-50 tie, a Vice President Pamela Harris would cast the tie breaking vote as President of the Senate.

National Right to Life’s political action committees will be heavily involved in keeping the Senate under the leadership of pro-life Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.)

A runoff is called for under Georgia law if no candidate reaches 50%.  Pro-life incumbent David Perdue (R), first elected in 2014, received 49.7% of the vote. Sen. Perdue will square off against pro-abortion Democrat Jon Ossoff who garnered 47.9%.

Pro-life Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R) will meet the pro-abortion Democrat, Rev. Dr. Raphael Warnock, in the second run-off election. Sen. Loeffler was appointed in 2019 to succeed pro-life Sen. Johnny Isakson who retired because of health issues.

This second runoff was no surprise. There were 21 candidates competing, making it very difficult for any single candidate to reach 50%.


Daniel Miller is responsible for nearly all of National Right to Life News' political writing.

With the election of Donald Trump to the U.S. presidency, Daniel Miller developed a deep obsession with U.S. politics that has never let go of the political scientist. Whether it's the election of Joe Biden, the midterm elections in Congress, the abortion rights debate in the Supreme Court or the mudslinging in the primaries - Daniel Miller is happy to stay up late for you.

Daniel was born and raised in New York. After living in China, working for a news agency and another stint at a major news network, he now lives in Arizona with his two daughters.
