    That will not count for a Presidential election, which is statewide.

    Democrats did not pick up any seats in Ohio anyway.

    Democrats will also be on the case for gerrymandering. The Roberts court or the lower judiciary cannot keep shooting down cases without looking so pro-GOP they become a joke (which they almost are already).

    Florida getting closer. Its around a 0.5% gap now, which under Florida law triggers an automatic recount. Theres also uncounted Early votes and Mail in votes which could change outcome. A lot of these votes are in Broward (though not all).

    The Georgia Secretary of States office thinks there are around 22000 uncounted Provisional ballots left. Apparently to to force a runoff, there would need to be 25000 uncounted votes, and that all of them would have to be for Abrams. Very unlikely.

    Oh yeah, that would be the office of Secretary of State Jack Kemp, who happens to be er..... Abrams' opponent in the election, and indeed the office responsible for some distinctly dubious electoral practices during the campaign.

    And of course, you reproduce the quote here without an ounce of irony or criticism.
