Georgia Races Called; Democrats Will Take Control of Congress

The news seemed inevitable, but is now official.

As supporters of President Trump stormed the Capitol, forcing a delay in the certification of the electoral college results, another election was just about to wrap up.

All eyes are Pennsylvania Avenue at the moment, where a massive crowd of tens of thousands of MAGA-wing Republicans has breached the sacred government building, demanding to hear from Vice President Mike Pence.  There are no commercials being plywood on Fox or CNN at the moment; no time to pull away.

But there is news out of Georgia that perhaps seemed inevitable earlier, but is now officially official.

Democrat Jon Ossoff has defeated Republican David Perdue in the Georgia runoff, The Associated Press said Wednesday, giving Democrats control of the U.S. Senate.

“It is with humility that I thank the people of Georgia for electing me to serve you in the United States Senate,” Ossoff said earlier Wednesday.

Perdue, whose Senate term expired earlier this week, has not conceded the race.

“Everybody who cast your ballot, everybody who put your faith and confidence in our democracy’s capacity to deliver the representation that we deserve — whether you were for me, or against me — I’ll be for you in the U.S. Senate,” Ossoff said. “I will serve all the people of the state.”

The results has some historical significance as well.

Ossoff is the first Jewish senator from Georgia and will be the youngest sitting U.S. senator at age 33. His victory comes along with the historic win of Raphael Warnock, who will take office as the state’s first Black senator. They are the first Democrats to win Senate seats in Georgia since 2000.

Fellow Democrat Rev. Raphael Warnock also won his Senate race, with that result coming just after midnight on Wednesday morning.

This will solidify the Democrats’ majority in Congress, whenever it is that Congress will be able to get back to work.
