There’s a supreme irony in all of these Republican-made changes to how Tuesday's runoff election will decide Georgia's next U.S. Senator.
The election could say a lot about candidate quality and whether Democrats can replicate their success in the state.
Herschel Walker has to improve on his showing from November, while Raphael Warnock is looking to keep running up the score in metro Atlanta.
Turnout will matter, especially who turns out.
Surprises are always possible, but there seem to be few reasons to think Herschel Walker can improve upon his showing last month.
Another Senate seat would mean majorities on committees and an easier time confirming judges. The political consequences could reach even further.
The two candidates focused on motivating their base voters with dueling events on the eve of Election Day.
This story was constructed with the SHARI Process:
- The StoryGraph Toolkit extracted URIs from the biggest story of the day from the StoryGraph service
- Hypercane performed the following steps:
- It accepted the list of original resource URIs from the output of the StoryGraph Toolkit, and queried the Memento Aggregator to find as many mementos as possible
- For resources that were not already mementos, it submitted them to web archives with ArchiveNow
- It analyzed all mementos to automatically discover the most frequent sumgrams and named entities present in the overall story
- It analyzed all images in these mementos to automatically select the best image for the overall story
- It then formatted the data for the story based on all of this input
- Raintale took the input from Hypercane and rendered the final product with information supplied by MementoEmbed
