Jerusalem24 – The US Democratic Party candidates announced, on Wednesday, that they had won the two seats in the Senate from Georgia in the run-off elections.
And via “Twitter”, the Democratic Party candidate, John Ossoff, declared his victory in the ballot that took place on Tuesday after intense competition with his Republican rival, David Purdue.
Ossoff posted on his official account a video clip in which he thanked the residents of the state who chose him to represent them in the Senate, and wrote: “Thank you Georgia.”
With this, Ossoff, a documentary filmmaker, became the youngest senator at the age of 33.
The other Democratic candidate who was running for the second seat assigned to the state, Raphael Warnock, had announced that he had defeated his current Republican Senator Kelly Loeffler.
Warnock, a pastor at the church where Martin Luther King Jr.was preaching, became the first black senator in the state’s history.
And with the Democrats’ victory, the Senate became divided, each party with 50 seats, giving the fully-elected Vice President Harris the likely vote.
Democratic control of the House and power will help the president-elect, Joe Biden, to achieve his political goals with great satisfaction.
The state of Georgia has been “red” for decades, in reference to its continuous vote for the Republican Party, and as the two candidates win the run-off, the state has become “blue”, a reference to the color of the Democratic Party.
