Jason Johnson, politics professor at Morgan State University reports live amid a jubilant crows of Warnock supporters explaining, "The feeling here isn't just elation, they think they just saved the country."Wow! That's quite the sentiment, but I feel they may be right, at least for now.
Listen to the winner speak and his audience respond in Warnock Celebrates Win: 'The People Have Spoken'.
Sen. Raphael Warnock thanks supporters and reflected on his mother's history in a speech after his projected win the in Georgia Senate runoff race.That is one happy crowd!
I conclude with an analysis of Warnock's win in Steve Kornacki: Changing Demographics In Atlanta Area Helped Warnock's Campaign.
Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock defeated Republican football star Herschel Walker on Tuesday in Georgia’s Senate runoff election, NBC News projects, handing President Joe Biden and his party a key win. Warnock’s victory will give Democrats an outright majority in the Senate after two years under a 50-50 divide, with Vice President Kamala Harris casting tie-breaking votes. Steve Kornacki discusses Warnock's win.As I usually write about awards shows, electorates matter and the electorate in Georgia is changing to favor Democrats over Republicans, although it only helped determine the winner in this particular contest this year. That's not to take anything away from Senator Warnock and his campaign. Congratulations to Senator Warnock and his campaign staff and volunteers!
