(TheRedWire.com) -The overwhelming majority of Americans cast their 2020 midterm election ballots on Tuesday, November 8. In Georgia, a run-off election extended the campaign nearly a month after incumbent Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-GA) and Republican challenger Hershel Walker (R-GA) failed to secure the 50% minimum vote. Ahead of the December 6 vote to decide the final number of Senators by political party in the upper chamber, the Trump-endorsed candidate claimed he didn’t know what pronouns were.
On Sunday, December 4, Walker appeared at a local political rally. He told those in the audience that the government was injecting wokeness into the military. Among the issues he cited was the usage of pronouns. Whether sincere or mocking, the GOP candidate said he didn’t “even know what the heck is [sic] a pronoun.” He added that he found the pronoun debate tiresome and wanted the military combat-ready for a war.

Democrats will maintain their fragile majority in the upper chamber. The question ahead of the runoff elections was; would they again have a 50/50 split with Vice President Kamala Harris being the tie-breaking vote, or would they have a 51 to 49 advantage? Senate Democrats may not be as relevant as in 2021 and 2022. The GOP flipped the House, thereby creating a divided government. While they may have the plurality in the upper chamber, the Left no longer has unilateral control over Congress despite Tuesday’s outcome.
