Ossoff Projected to Beat Perdue Giving Democrats Control of Senate
With roughly 98% of the vote in, analysts are projecting that Democratic challenger Jon Ossoff has defeated Republican Senator David Perdue 50.3% to 49.7% and filled the final Georgian Senate Seat.
Democratic challenger Rev. Raphael Warnock was projected as the winner over Republican Senator Kelly Loeffler 50.6% to 49.4% earlier today.
With both seats filled by Democrats, the Senate seat count is tied Democrats - 50, Republicans - 50. This results in Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris becoming the tie-breaking vote and gives Democrats control of the Senate.
