The leader of the Democrats in the United States Senate had a simple message when discussing the likely run-off elections in Georgia that could very well determine which party holds court in the chamber.

“Now we take Georgia, and then we change the world,” said Sen. Chuck Schumer. “Now we take Georgia, and then we change America.”

This only highlights the importance of the run-off election in Georgia. And it will be fascinating to watch results come in for that race considering how — I guess we’ll say “interesting” — it has been watching the state release results from last Tuesday’s presidential election.

Republicans hope to hang on for a slim majority in the Senate. But that majority won’t be the strongest considering some of the cast of characters who make up that GOP caucus.

Nonetheless, if Sen. Mitch McConnell can hold his caucus together and maintain a tight ship, Republican will be able to thwart Schumer and Democrat efforts to “change America.”

It’s crazy. Democrats will try to tell us they love America, but they’re always wanting to change it — or fundamentally transform it.
