Democrats to take majority in Senate house with Warnock count on lead.
I am inspired by Martin Luther King, Jr., John Lewis, C.T. Vivian, Andrew Young, and those who struggled alongside them. When we vote, we remember them and honor their sacrifice. said during election Election
Democrat Raphael Warnock won one of Georgia’s two Senate runoffs Wednesday, becoming the first Black senator in his state’s history and putting the Senate majority within the party’s reach.
A pastor who spent the past 15 years leading the Atlanta church where Martin Luther King Jr. preached, Warnock defeated Republican incumbent Kelly Loeffler.
Another Senate seat counting:
JonOssoff (D): 50.2%: 2,208,717
DavidPerdue (R): 49.8%: 2,192,347
Georgia, Democrat Raphael Warnock has defeated Republican Kelly Loeffler in one of two Georgia Senate runoffs. Senior Pastor at the Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, Warnock will be Georgia’s first Black Senator. The other US Senate runoff between Republican Party Senator David Perdue and Democrat Jon Ossoff is still too early to call.
The experts said, if Democrats win both runoffs, the Senate will be divided evenly between 50 Democrats and 50 Republicans, leaving Vice President Harris as the tie-breaker and giving Democrats the majority. If Perdue wins re-election in the other Georgia runoff, the Senate will remain in Republican hands.
