Democrats win US Senate Elections in Georgia
Democrats declare victory in the US Senate elections in Georgia, as confirmed by the data of counting votes, and may strip Republicans of a majority in the House. According to this information, Democrat Raphael Warnock has guaranteed himself a seat in the Senate, ahead of Republican candidate Kelly Loeffler by more than one percent.
‘’Georgia, I am honored to have the confidence you place in me. I give you a promise tonight. I’m going to the Senate to work for all of Georgia, regardless of who you voted for in this election at this point in American history,’’ Raphael Warnock stated.
The defeat of Warnock’s opponent Kelly Loeffler is associated with her position on the Black Lives Matter movement and LGBT + activists.
Republican David Purdue and Democrat John Ossof, who also announced his victory, are fighting for second place in the Senate from Georgia:
“Everyone who voted, who believes in our democracy’s ability to provide the representation we deserve, whether you voted for me or against me, I will defend your interests in the US Senate. I will serve all the people of this state. I will do my best to ensure that the US Senate takes Georgia into account.”
As a result of the November 3 elections, Republicans secured 50 seats in the Senate, while Democrats have two fewer. If Joe Biden’s associates manage to establish parity, the deciding vote on many issues will remain with Vice President Kamala Harris. Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer has already said that the party has managed to regain control of Congress.
