Jon Ossoff Wins Georgia Runoff, Handing Democrats Senate Control
January 7, 2021
Democrat Jon Ossoff has defeated Republican David Perdue in the Georgia runoff, The Associated Press said Wednesday, giving Democrats control of the U.S. Senate.
"It is with humility that I thank the people of Georgia for electing me to serve you in the United States Senate," Ossoff said earlier Wednesday.
Perdue, whose Senate term expired earlier this week, has not conceded the race.
