It is critical that Republicans win two U.S. Senate runoff elections in Georgia to maintain the Republican majority in the Senate and stave off the adoption of liberal policies, U.S. Sen.-elect Cynthia Lummis said Monday.
“If both of those races go Democrat, then the Democrats will control the Senate by virtue of having the president of the Senate be Kamala Harris, the vice president of the United States,” Lummis said during an appearance on Fox’s “The Daily Briefing” with Dana Perino.
The senator-elect added that if Democrats took over as Senate majority, there would be Supreme Court packing, an end to filibustering and fines for gun owners.
“These are ridiculous consequences, these are monumental consequences,” she said.
Lummis also addressed Trump’s economic policies, which said had been beneficial to both rural and urban areas.
She expressed hope that the country could continue using Trump’s economic policies even if Biden was sworn as president in on Jan. 20.
“We need to separate people who just dislike President Trump’s temperament and personality from his policies, because they are great for America,” she said.
