Some better Republican would probably win the GOP primary, but depending on how  the GOPers in GA  vote in new voter suppression restrictions and gerrymandering, it could happen.

Agree to most of that, but I don't think gerrymandering comes into play since it would be a Senate race.

The new census will shake up seats in Congress. See how your state stands to win or lose.

Some states will gain seats after the census, while others such as Rhode Island will likely lose them. And even after the changes, House members from some states will still represent a starkly different number of people than others.

As usual, would not let me read the article.

However, this is nothing new in American politics.  The North has been losing House seats for decades while the Sunbelt has been picking them up.  As for the numbers represented, some states have only one representative who represents the whole state no matter how many people live there.  There probably is some variance in the numbers per representative, but it complies with federal law.

The issue is gerrymandering, particularly in Republican controlled states.  It will be brutal for the Democrats.

Interesting article from a S.C. "newspaper" about Nikki Haley.  Despite many serious missteps and being totally unqualified, she is still in there working to become president.   You can't count her out as she proved in being elected governor of S.C. twice.   Tim Scott is running for reelection to US Senate from S.C. in 2022, but since Haley appointed him originally not likely she would run for Senate.   Besides which, she really wants to be president.

She has stated that she would not run in 2024 if Trump runs again.

I don't see a lot here other than Madmouth foaming as usual.  Yes, Trump tried to damage the census and succeeded to a limited extent, but overall I think it will end up about where people expected.
