(8,628 posts)Mitch McConnell will dangle the world to Manchin and Senima with a Walker win, he only needs one, with a Warnock hold he needs them both. Senima may be the first to take the deal.

#### leftieNanner

(15,532 posts)I had the same thought

#### msfiddlestix

(7,599 posts)But that is presumming too much and inserting fantasy.

So the reality of both of their inclinations (let's just call it) is rather predictable for the most part. My worries are both jumping ship.

We badly need reliable Senators in play, so we have to flip up coming races in 2024 I believe is the next opportunity.

(56,322 posts)him or Sinema countless times for them to stop pulling the football away from us at the last minute like Lucy does to Charlie Brown.

And that of course depends on Sen. Warnock winning in Georgia.

(5,410 posts)if we do not also control the House...

(5,410 posts)something most of us would not have predicted, 5 days after the election...

I pray for some "surprises" in California, and anywhere else that the counting of votes is not completed yet...

#### Fiendish Thingy

(17,354 posts)Even if we get to 51, if Manchin opposes a bill, Sinema will too. We needed 52 to prevent their obstruction.

#### Demsrule86

(70,658 posts)Sinema and Manchin. But I'll take it for the judges and if we keep the house we could pass some legislation.

#### LeftInTX
