It was a historic gain for the Democrats after they emerged victorious in both Senate runoff elections in the state of Georgia. Rev. Raphael Warnock defeated Senator Kelly Loeffler, becoming the first Black Democrat elected to the Senate from the South. On the other hand, the young Jon Ossoff, defeated David Perdue to ensure that the Democrats have sufficient number in the Congress. This was a big blow to the Republicans led by President Trump. The victories are a clear statement to Trump’s allegations of fraudulent November Elections.
In a statement earlier on in the day, the elected senator Ossoff said “At this moment of crisis, as Covid-19 continues to ravage our state and our country, when hundreds of thousands have lost their lives, millions have lost livelihoods, Georgia families are having difficulty putting food on the table fearing foreclosure or eviction, having difficulty making ends meet let’s unite now to beat this virus and rush economic relief to the people of our state and to the American people.”
Democrats will control the Senate, the House of Representatives and the White House for the first time since 2009.
