A Democrat won a US House seat this week with 79 percent of the vote. Her GOP opponent has not conceded.
She won 79 percent of the vote over Republican Jason Mariner, who was born in Boston and founded a drug and alcohol detox center in Florida. Mariner got less than 20 percent of the vote and trails Cherfilus-McCormick by over 32,000 votes. For context, Biden beat Trump statewide in Georgia by 11,000 votes.

“Now they called the race, I did not win, so they say, but that does not mean that they lost either, it does not mean that we lost,” Mariner was quoted by the Miami CBS affiliate as saying.

He said he will file a lawsuit. Election officials say it takes 14 days to certify the results. Mariner, then, has 10 days to challenge them.

It's Florida.
It's entirely possible they fucked up the counts.

Let’s stay on topic here… how do you feel about the RNC blocking debates?
Debates are important and it would be a shame if they are cancelled. Moderators should be bi-partisan and questions should be fair. I don't know how you achieve that in today's climate. Maybe stop using members of the media as moderators?

Full disclosure - I don't know all the details of why the RNC is making this stand. I don't know if their reasoning is justified or if they are just being crybaby politicians, using this as a way to leverage against other concessions.

“Moderators should be bi-partisan and questions should be fair. I don't know how you achieve that in today's climate.”

it appears that this is the core of the RNCs argument and the left is spinning it to call them nazis. Par For the course.

"The RNC has a duty to ensure that its future presidential nominees have the opportunity to debate their opponents on a level playing field," RNC chair Ronna McDaniel writes in the letter. "So long as the CPD appears intent on stonewalling the meaningful reforms necessary to restore its credibility with the Republican Party as a fair and nonpartisan actor, the RNC will take every step to ensure that future Republican presidential nominees are given that opportunity elsewhere."

“Conservatives welcomed the RNC's threat against the debate commission as critics on the right have long accused the institution of being outdated and having a political bias.”

Liberal media panics about no debates in 2024 as RNC feuds with Commission on Presidential Debates

Always the victims.
Are you claiming that there isn't a pretty prevalent media bias?

Trump was getting asked questions like "Why do you hate Mexicans?!?" while Biden was getting "What flavor ice cream is that Joe?"

Whatever. We reap what we sow.
We have an old coot in office who has no clue what's going on and has completely clusterfucked his 1st year in office but...no mean tweets.

So...Yay?

I'm assuming this is in response to partisan tactics? And doesn't the DNC want to open mail-in voting prior to the debates anyway?
Trump: They'll be announcing vaccine in the next 2 or 3 weeks.

Biden: He arising unsafe vaccines.

Moderator: There's no vaccines coming Mr President.

*3 weeks later*

Pfizer: We've got a vaccine!

I mean, why would you want to skip out on such an impartial process?

You do.

How much is the American national debt?

How much did it go up under the last administration?

who was the leading Democrat who voiced opposition? you remember that the US House controls spending...who was the Speaker of the House that authorized printing the $9T?

I read something about kids getting myocarditis after the jab. Not sure on the factual nature of it because who fucking knows anymore, but I think it's pretty accepted that kids are low-risk. So why introduce a risk?

Yes, I understand the theory that vaccines are for your fellow man, not just the individual. I got the jab. There's no telling how many humans I saved.
Kids are 8 times more likely to get myocarditis from Covid than they’re from the vaccine…. According to Wednesdays episode of the JRE.

Or at least that I

you posted a story that implies that printing money is the same as doing something. Nobody has fixed anything yet, and majority of the printed money will be wasted. You didn't post that story because "look at Pres Biden printing money". You posted it because "look at all the good things Pres Biden is doing"

He is not doing a good thing, he's transferring wealth from the poor to the wealthy, and dripping some on his cronies.

Literally the only major piece of legislation that Trump actually managed to pass into law was a historic-level tax cut /wealth redistribution directly into the pockets of the 1%.

If you're going to get on Biden's case for being an instrument of the 1%, well, there are only two options. The other side of the coin? That's basically their entire platform, they are quite explicit about it.
