Who Won The Week — 11/13/22

The idea behind Who Won the Week is to give you the opportunity to select who (or what) you think “won” this past week. Your selection can be anyone or anything — politicians, celebrities, athletes, authors, bloggers, your friends or family members, books, movies, TV shows, businesses, organizations, whatever.

It’s been almost a month since I last published a Who Won the Week post. Frankly, there hasn’t been much to crow about in my humble opinion. But this week there is.

Republicans were anticipating a big red wave in this year’s midterm elections, but what they got instead was barely a trickle. On Tuesday, in a repudiation of GOP election deniers and hard-core Trumpism, voters came out in droves to save democracy in America.

Democrats maintained control of the U.S. Senate when the incumbent Catherine Cortez Masto won a close race in Nevada to give the the Democrats 50 seats in the chamber, with Vice President Kamala Harris as the tie-breaking vote. Democrats could still gain a true majority (51-49) in the Senate, depending on the outcome of the Senate race in Georgia, which is headed to a runoff between Raphael Warnock, the Democratic incumbent, and Herschel Walker, a Donald Trump-endorsed former football star, after neither won a majority of votes on Election Day.

Democrats also fended off the GOP in most of the tossup districts Republicans had targeted in the House of Representatives. Hence, it’s not likely either party will have more than a slim majority next year, even though the Republicans will likely have more seats in the House than the Democrats. That said, there is still a very slim chance that, when all the votes are tallied, the Dems might still be in the hunt for an upset win.

So who (or what) do you think won the week?

If you want to participate, write your own post designating who you think won the week and why you think they deserve your nod. Then link back to this post and tag you post with FWWTW.

    I believe the United States of America won the past week! Those who look forward with joy and anticipation will eventually be seen as the ones who brought joy back to the “American Dream.”

    I hope people realize Herschel Walker is just a puppet for Trump and not a tiny bit more

    I think the Ukrainian army with its retaking of Kherson. But the victory in Nevada shows that having the last name Laxalt is no longer a guarantee of victory.

    Just a little trickle
    Trickle lacking salt
    Whimpy little trickle
    Donald it’s your fault

    It was a win, but way too close! I still can’t get over people voting for Walker.

    The past two years I have seen banners put about election fraud all around and was really sad about it. It had also made me nervous. The people spoke again making these false. So I would say US democracy won.
