Warnock, Ossoff win in Georgia, handing Dems Senate control
ATLANTA (AP) — Democrats have won both Georgia Senate seats — and with them, the U.S. Senate majority.
Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock, Democratic challengers who represented the diversity of their party’s evolving coalition, defeated Republicans David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler.
The twin victories Wednesday end nearly two decades in which Democrats have been shut out of statewide victories in Georgia.
Biden became the first Democratic presidential candidate to carry the state since 1992.
