Democratic challengers Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock have defeated GOP incumbents David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler, respectively. The New York Times, NBC News, CNN, and other major media outlets have officially called the election for Ossoff and Warnock.
The historic runoff election means that Mitch McConnell (R-KY) will no longer remain Senate Majority Leader.
That’s great news for working class Americans who have seen McConnell stand in the way of progress for so many years. He most recently gained notoriety for block $2,000 stimulus checks that were approved by the House and had the blessing of President Trump.
The wins give the Democrats control of both chambers of Congress and the White House for the first time since 2009, when Obama was elected.
