With the eyes of the nation and the world on them, Georgians made the final decision in what has been a wild election season. In a heated run-off election on Jan. 5, voters ultimately named Democrats Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff to the United States Senate.
The tough-fought race saw the state flip blue for a second time, with historic voter turnout. Both senators made history with the wins — Rev. Warnock became Georgia’s first Black senator and Ossoff its first Jewish senator. The results give Democrats control of the Senate with 50 seats and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris as tie-breaker.
