Despite key Senate races still being undecided, the motion to delay the Senate leadership elections failed, and the Senate leadership elections are set to go on today. Republicans are concerned with the undecided races, with the most notable election that remains undecided in Georgia between (R) Herschel Walker and (D) Raphael Warnock. Their run-off election is set for December 6th, and many Republicans are pushing for Senate leadership elections to be held off until after their run-off election is able to declare a winner.

Yesterday, Ted Cruz said on Twitter that he will propose a motion to delay the Republican Senate leadership elections until after December 6th, in hopes that Herschel Walker is able to come away with a key win in Georgia.


Ted Cruz would go on to tweet about his frustration with the matter, saying, “we don’t even know who will be in the Republican Conference yet!”:

Lindsey Graham also joined Ted Cruz in his motion to delay the Senate leadership vote until after the December 6th run-off elections in Georiga:

Among others, Rep. Matt Gaetz tweeted his support to Senator Marco Rubio for the motion to delay voting for the Senate leadership elections:

Too bad the motion to delay failed. I see that Senate Republicans didn’t learn a lesson from the midterm elections, where they failed miserably.

I DON;T THINK THEY FAILED MISERABLY, look the elections are very crooked, they recount in Colorado and Lauren Boebert had a lot more votes than Frisch, how did that happened? imajine if she did not contest and just conceded?

The old guard like McConnelol will do their best to hold the elections now because the longer elections are delayed the better the chances they will lose power and influence.
