Democrat Jon Ossoff has won a Georgia Senate seat, beating Republican David Perdue in one of the state’s pivotal runoffs on Tuesday.

“It is with humility that I thank the people of Georgia for electing me to serve you in the United States Senate.

Ossoff is the second Georgia Democrat to win in the January 5 runoff election.

Raphael Warnock also won his race late on Tuesday night, per a call from Vox’s elections partner Decision Desk.

Crucially, Ossoff’s victory means Democrats have now won the two seats required to retake control of the Senate.

Therefore, even if Democrats have control of the Senate, they will generally need around 10 Republican votes to get things done.

Ossoff’s win in Georgia ensures Democrats can at least count on that razor-thin Senate majority. »
