Democratic strategist Cyrus Garrett, who ran point for Joe Biden’s 2020 presidential campaign in Georgia, has a wealth of knowledge on the purple Peach State and a bullshit-free approach that offers a clear-eyed sense of the state of play in both the governor and U.S. Senate races a month out.
I hope you’ll listen to every minute of this one — it’s worth it if you want to understand Georgia from a man who has worked its trenches and seen what was coming there before most everybody else.
Included in this #pod are Garrett’s thoughts on:
the likelihood that Raphael Warnock or Herschel Walker gets to 50.1% of the vote on Nov. 8 to avoid an extended Senate runoff campaign
why the Black male is the new swing voter
where Stacey Abrams’ has failed to succeed as a candidate
how Raphael Warnock is carving out a different message than most other Democrats
the key difference between Georgia and Nevada this cycle
And: If you become a *PAID subscriber* today, you’ll get a bonus POD with Cyrus’ analysis of the map beyond Georgia and a bold prediction about a particular Democrat and 2024.
