Republican Sens. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue have lost their races to return to the United States Senate, according to multiple media outlets.

Loeffler trails Reverend Raphael Warnock by more than 64,000 votes. Most outlets projected Warnock as the winner in that race last night. Now, 33-year-old Joel Ossoff is the projected winner in Georgia’s other hotly-contested runoff election over former Fortune 500 CEO-turned-Sen. David Perdue.

Per NBC News:  

Democrat Jon Ossoff defeated Republican David Perdue in Tuesday’s election, NBC News projected Wednesday afternoon, while the network earlier called Georgia’s other race for Democrat Raphael Warnock over GOP Sen. Kelly Loeffler.

Biden will now enter the White House on Jan. 20 with his party in control of both chambers of Congress, allowing him to confirm his Cabinet and judicial nominees and giving him and a chance to advance his legislative agenda, which would have gone nowhere as long as Republican Senate Majority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., remained in charge.

The results are a rebuke of President Donald Trump, whose supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol Wednesday to try to stop Congress from counting the Electoral College results. Trump’s ongoing attempts to overturn the election results overshadowed the runoffs and some Republicans worried his attacks on the integrity of the election depressed GOP turnout in Georgia.

“Thank you so much for the confidence that you’ve placed in me,” Ossoff told supporters in a video livestream. “I am honored, honored by your support, by your confidence by your trust, and I will look forward to serving you in the United States Senate with integrity with humility, with honor and getting things done for the people of Georgia.”

President-elect Biden and Senate Democrats say that their legislative priority will be passing a new round of Covid-19 relief.


  1. You do realize they cheated again. While watching the results last night , the tally ran across the bottom of the screen. The Republican Perdue LOST 33,000 votes in a matter of seconds.

  2. Bulchite, Biden didnt win, Trump won.
    The same Mail In Dirty ballots and machines are the same used as before.
    Only a blind, ignorant and stupid person would say the Black and Brown Shirt ‘s won fairly
    Its sad because we will reap what was sown and the ones who helped make this happen will reap the whirlwind and not just those to whom they think will be the only ones targeted
