As Webster County goes, so goes Georgia

Webster is a small, rural county in southwestern Georgia. Maybe a thousand votes. These people are farm people. 54% whites 44% black. In November Trump carried it by two. Webster just reported, amazingly early, that both R’s are winning by four.

So the first concrete sign is good. But no matter what the result, either way, we have, effectively, gridlock. Nothing’s going to get done, not a budget, or anything big. House Democrats are split, and any number of small groups of co-conspirators can block any bill. The Senate has multiple power blocs, all able to thwart any bill.

This is going to be ugly.
