Democratic Candidates Win Senate Runoff Races in Georgia
Democratic candidates Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock have been declared the winners in Georgia’s Senate runoff races. Voter turnout reached near-historic levels of 92% in Georgia, in part helped by robust grassroots organizing and voter registration campaigns. Ossoff and Warnock’s victory gives Democrats control of the Senate, with a 50-50 split and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris casting the tie-breaking vote, which will make it easier for President-elect Biden to advance his policy priorities.
