Ossoff, Warnock Win: Twitter Reacts to Georgia’s Historic Election Handing Democrats the Senate


Georgia has been on the minds of Americans for weeks now. Both Democrats and Republicans anticipated Tuesday night and an historic runoff election that will decide which party controls the Senate. This morning, CNN projected that Democrat Rev. Raphael Warnock beat incumbent Republican Sen. Kelly Loeffler in a tight race. Later in the day—amid pro-Trump protesters invading the U.S. Capitol—the second race was called, with Democrat Jon Ossoff’s beating out Republican Sen. David Perdue in a tight race.

President-elect Joe Biden needed both seats in the Senate in order to enact key legislation in his administration. Winning both seats creates a 50-50 party split with Vice President-elect Kamala Harris as the tie-breaking vote. GOP victory would have maintained Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s standing. Now, Warnock’s will become the first Black senator from Georgia and the first Democrat the state will send to the Senate in 20 years. This achievement comes on the heels of Georgia going blue in the presidential election for the first time since 1992. “Joy comes in the morning. Thank you, Georgia,” Warnock, a senior pastor of Atlanta’s Ebenezer Baptist Church, tweeted on Wednesday.

As the world receives definitive results from the Ossoff-Perdue race, many are praising the organizing efforts of Stacey Abrams. After losing a highly-contested Georgia governor race in 2018, she founded the voting rights organization Fair Fight. Abrams’ efforts, along with those of other Black and female organizers, inspired record turnout and may have helped flip Georgia blue in the Senate.

Here are some of the best reactions to Georgia’s groundbreaking results from Hillary Clinton, Kerry Washington, Katie Porter, and more.
