‘GEORGIA MATTERS’: Ted Cruz warns of possible Warnock win, says Dem lies about voting record

POWDER SPRINGS, Ga. – Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz on Tuesday issued a sharp warning to Americans across the country about what he thinks could happen if incumbent Democratic Senator Raphael Warnock wins Georgia’s runoff against Republican Herschel Walker next month .

Speaking to Fox News Digital after a rally with Walker and South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham in Powder Springs, Ga., Cruz tried to explain the difference between a 50-50 split-power Senate between Republicans and Democrats and a 51 – 49 Senate, where Democrats would have greater control and would be able to pass broader legislation.

“If the Democrats win here, Joe Biden can quickly fill the federal courts with radicals, radicals who would take your liberties and mine, who would take your freedom of religion, your freedom of speech, your Second Amendment rights . It also brings us incredibly close [Senate Majority Leader] Chuck Schumer can end the filibuster,” Cruz said.

Cruz noted that Democrats’ previous efforts to end the Senate filibuster — a rule that requires most legislation to pass the panel by a 60-vote majority — were largely led by Democratic Sens. Joe Manchin, DW.Va were stopped. and Kyrsten Sinema, D-Ariz., due to their opposition to such an amendment and the current 50-50 split between the two parties.

“If the Democrats win here in Georgia, we are one vote away from ending the filibuster. And I think if that happens, Joe Manchin would switch to Chuck Schumer. They would end the filibuster,” he said.

“Here’s what the Democrats want to do when they end the filibuster: They want to strike down every voter integrity law in America, strike down every photo identification law in America, legalize ballot-taking across America, register millions of illegal aliens to vote all across America, register millions of thugs and criminals to vote across America,” he said.

“They also want to make DC a state that has two new Democratic senators, and they want to register millions of illegal aliens and make them citizens. They want to do all this to keep the Democrats in power forever because their priority is power,” he added.

Cruz also warned that a Democratic majority could try to grab the US Supreme Court by increasing the number of judges.

“Georgia is important. Because of that, I’m here. That’s why I was here last week. That’s why I’m here this week because December 6 is important in Georgia,” he said.

When asked about Warnock’s campaign trail touting his work with Cruz to support legislation as evidence of his bipartisanship, Cruz said he was “glad” that the bill, which would create a new highway from Texas through Georgia and to the Atlantic, passed because it was “good” for their respective states.

However, he added that Warnock used an example of bipartisanship to cover up lies about his Senate voting results, which were not favored by most Georgians.

“It tells you something that he’s fighting for it when his election results are the most liberal of any senator in the US Senate. It was left hard,” Cruz said.

“He voted for open borders. He and I weren’t there together. He voted to confirm pro-police abolitionists for senior DOJ positions. We were against it,” he said, before mentioning a number of other policy points Warnock supported, including those “that caused rampant inflation.”

“Imagine for a second that you woke up, that you were Raphael Warnock. You can’t rely on what you really believe, which is socialism, because people in Georgia don’t believe that,” he added. “Democrats win when they effectively lie about their record and their beliefs. And Republicans win when we effectively tell the truth, because the people of Georgia, and for that matter the people of America, believe in sensible conservative values.”
