The Nation Moaned “Come On Georgia” — She Groaned and Stepped It Up Historically
The nation moaned and groaned, “Come on Georgia.” It became a rallying cry in the Senate runoff races because the outcome of the Georgia contest to seat two senators in the US Congress not only impacted the State of Georgia, but it also had national and international implications as well.
And boy, oh boy, did Georgia come through. She elected two senators on the same ballot for the first time in the history of the constitution. In 2018, Minnesota came close to achieving this feat when it held a special election to select a class two senator ( Tina Smith- Democratic-Farmer-Labor) on the same day that the General Election chose the level one senator (Amy Klobuchar-D).
