Uphill battle for Senate continues
Yes, it's a long shot, if enough of us pitch in. Otherwise the chance is nil
So please consider donating to or working for Jon Ossoff and/or Raphael Warnock
to boost their chances in an upcoming January 5, 2021 runoff
This is our best hope for the possibility of being able to make major legislative progress these next four years!
