Warnock Wins Runoff, Dems Take Senate
Regardless of how we feel about the outcome, the stage is set for the next two years. Now all we can do is pray for our leaders.
From Fox News. Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock will defeat Republican challenger Herschel Walker in Georgia’s high stakes Senate runoff election, The Associated Press projects.
While the Senate majority has already been decided, Warnock’s victory in the last ballot box showdown of the 2022 midterm elections gives the Democrats a 51-49 margin in the chamber and a bit of breathing room in their razor-thin control of the Senate.
“Thank you, Georgia. We did it again,” Warnock tweeted soon after his victory was projected.
And in his victory speech, the senator noted that “after a hard-fought campaign, or should I say campaigns, it is my honor to utter the four most powerful words ever spoken in a democracy – the people have spoken.”
“I want all of Georgia to know, whether you voted for me or not, that every single day I am going to keep working for you,” the senator said in a nod towards bipartisanship.
Walker, in a concession speech in Atlanta, emphasized that “I want you to believe in America and continue to believe in the Constitution and believe in our elected officials. Most of all, continue to pray for them.”
“We put up one heck of a fight,” Walker added. And he told his supporters that “I’m never going to stop fighting for Georgia. I’m never going to stop fighting for you.”
For a second straight cycle, the final electoral fight took place in the crucial southeastern battleground state of Georgia.
Two years ago, the Democrats’ sweep of the twin Georgia Senate runoffs gave them the majority. This time around, Warnock’s victory gives his party something it hasn’t had the past two years — control of committees, which gives Democrats the ability advance legislation and nominations more easily to the Senate floor. …
Democrats once dominated elections in Georgia, but the Peach State was reliably red the past two decades, until President Biden narrowly captured the state in the 2020 election, followed by Ossoff and Warnock’s razor-thin victories two months later in the Senate runoffs.
However, Republicans swept this year’s statewide elections in Georgia, led by GOP Gov. Brian Kemp’s comfortable victory over Democratic challenger Stacey Abrams in a rematch of their 2018 showdown.
