Is Georgia on your mind? There may be a reason for that! How you can help.

We’ve had a number of people ask what they can do to help with the US Senate run-offs in Georgia on January 5.

Background

Typically, no state can have both US Senators up for election in the same year. However, due to a death, Georgia had to have both a regular race for one US Senate seat and a special election for the other US Senate seat, both held earlier this month.

Georgia election law requires that to win a race, a candidate must get at least 50% of the vote. In both US Senate races, no candidate received 50% or more of the vote, forcing a run-off, where the top 2 vote getters in both races face off in an election scheduled for Tuesday, January 5.

Who Are the Candidates?

Incumbent Republican David Perdue is facing Democrat challenger Jon Ossoff in one of the US Senate races, and incumbent Republican Kelly Loeffler is squaring off against Democrat Raphael Warnock.

Why are these run-off elections important? 

The Republicans currently hold a slight majority in the US Senate. If the Democrats win these races in Georgia, that majority is gone; and the US Senate will be split 50-50.  If Joe Biden becomes president, then Kamala Harris as vice-president becomes the tie-breaking vote in the US Senate.

Ideas for what you can do to help in Georgia?

  • Pray that conservative, pro-life, pro-family, pro-freedom candidates prevail.
  • Engage with MyFaithVotes, which is coordinating several options for people living outside of Georgia who want to help get-out-the-vote for these runoff elections. More information is available HERE.
  • Give financially. Our sister organization in Georgia is working hard to turn out the vote and to make sure people are fully educated on the candidates and the critical issues. Secure online donations can be given HERE.

Thanks for remaining engaged as our nation continues to sort through this contentious election. Be assured that we are monitoring the Wisconsin recount and any lawsuits that may be filed here regarding the presidential election.  We remind ourselves regularly that even in this, our great God is truly in control. We remain informed and involved, mindful of John Quincy Adams’ sage words: “Duty is ours; results are God’s.”

 

WI Family Action Calls for Election Day of Prayer

Today is Election Day 2020. We know you have likely been reminded of that and of the importance of your vote multiple times by now. Please know, those of us sending those messages are doing so out of the very best of intentions—because we really do know how important this election is and how important your vote is! Soon, the opportunity to vote in this election will be done. The messaging will stop; the decisions will have been made.

At Wisconsin Family Action and Wisconsin Family Council we really have done all we could to encourage Christians in Wisconsin to honor God with their vote. On this Election Day, we issue one final call to action related to this election:  please join us in prayer today.
We have identified 5 specific areas to focus on for this special prayer emphasis.
We urge you to pray individually multiple times during the day today and, if at all possible, to gather your family together (maybe at a meal?) and pray specifically for these requests. Our WFA/WFC team will be praying as well throughout the day and into the evening.

You know the verse well, I’m sure…II Chronicles 7:14 – “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and will turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from Heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

In principle, this verse applies as much today to us in America as it did in promise to the children of Israel. In essence, the verse is calling the faithful to revival…and that’s really what we need in our country.

Thank you for standing with us in prayer as Election 2020 draws to a close. May God be honored not just by our vote but by our earnest and faithful prayers.

Take Action! Support Amy Coney Barrett For Supreme Court Justice

Last Saturday, President Trump nominated an eminently qualified candidate, Amy Coney Barrett, for the US Supreme Court!

Unsurprisingly, the radical Left has already unleashed on Judge Barrett and is holding nothing back in their attacks on her. We’ve seen this before.

During a now-infamous exchange in her 2017 confirmation hearing for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit (the court that covers WI), the Senate Judiciary Committee’s ranking Democrat, Senator Dianne Feinstein, referring to Judge Barrett’s faith, said directly to the judge: “The dogma lives loudly within you, and that’s of concern.”

Barrett rightly shot down the accusation that her faith disqualified her, saying in response: “I see no conflict between having a sincerely held faith and duties as a judge.”

As conservatives, we know what we are getting with Amy Coney Barrett, and the Left doesn’t like it. They don’t want to see a successful and intelligent judge, wife, and mother of seven take this seat because they know she is not an activist judge who will be swayed by the winds of culture and “elite” opinion.

Democrats also know the debate over Justice Ginsburg’s vacant seat has incredibly important implications for the 2020 election. They know whoever fills it will impact any legal challenges arising from this contentious election.

Liberal progrssives know that a Justice Barrett will impact countless important cases sure to come before the Supreme Court in the years ahead, including what we sense maybe at hand, but have likely not yet dared to hope – a challenge to and possible overturning of Roe v. Wade.

For all these reasons and more, the contempt and vitriol aimed at Justice Kavanaugh during his confirmation process will be nothing compared to what will be directed at Amy Coney Barrett over the coming weeks. During this trying time, she will need all the support she can get!

We must fill this seat with a nominee of integrity who will deliver an unimpeachable originalist record on the high court. Judge Barrett is that type of nominee. She will be that type of Justice on the Supreme Court!

1) Please call our Wisconsin senators TODAY! They NEED to hear from you. Let them know you support Judge Amy Coney Barrett for the Supreme Court. Let them know they need to vote for her confirmation. Let them know they need to stand up and speak out against the obstruction and lies that are sure to come during the confirmation process.

Senator Ron Johnson (R) –  Washington office phone: 202-224-5323.  Send Sen. Johnson an email HERE.
Senator Tammy Baldwin (D) –  Washington office phone: 202-224-5653.  Send Sen. Baldwin an email HERE.

2) Pray–frequently and fervently that God will yet have mercy on us and give us the blessing of having this exemplary woman serve on our nation’s highest court. Pray individually, with your family, in your church, with friends. This, too, is part of being a good steward of the blessing of living in this nation.

This judicial seat will be VITALLY important for many of the cases coming before the Supreme Court beginning just next month! The abolition of Roe v. Wade has never been closer than now.

In addition, religious liberty is increasingly under attack, and we need a strong defender of the First Amendment on the Supreme Court. This seat will also be PIVOTAL to any litigation over the election results, which will likely come before the Supreme Court. We cannot waste this moment!

Thank you for taking time to contact our Wisconsin US Senators and for praying. May God bless you and our nation as we humble ourselves, seek Him, turn from our sin, and pray.
