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.
This used to be a weekly prompt, but 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. And that winner is sanity.
That’s the good news. The bad news is that the election was a such a close one.
Sanity? In today’s crazy world, when sanity happens, that deserves acknowledgment. But more specifically, sanity this week refers to the voters in Georgia who elected Raphael Warnock to a full term in the U.S. Senate when he beat Trump-endorsed Herschel Walker for the seat in this past week’s runoff election.
Nearly 49% of Georgia voters cast their ballots for a totally unqualified candidate who may not even be a legal resident of their state. Of the more than 3.5 million votes cast, Warnock won by fewer than 100,000 votes. Seriously?
Well, I don’t want to focus on the negative, so I congratulate Senator Warnock on his narrow victory and the sanity of the 51.4% of Georgia voters who voted for him. And Warnock’s victory gives the Democrats a 51–49 majority in the U.S. Senate.
