GEORGIA TAKEAWAYS: Black turnout fuels Warnock victory

ATLANTA (AP) — The Rev. Raphael Warnock, a Democrat, defeated Sen. Kelly Loeffler in Tuesday’s special election for an unexpired term for a U.S. Senate seat in Georgia. Warnock will become the first Black senator in Georgia history. It remains too early to call the second race between Democrat Jon Ossoff and Republican David Perdue, who’s seeking a second term after his first term expired Sunday. Control of the Senate is in the balance.

Associated Press projects Democrat Raphael Warnock win against incumbent Georgia Sen. Kelly Loeffler

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Associated Press has projected Georgia Democrat Raphael Warnock as the winner of one of the two Senate runoff elections. Warnock, who served as pastor for the same Atlanta church where slain civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. grew up and preached, becomes the first Black senator elected in Georgia. The Tuesday victory gives Democrats a chance to seize control of the Senate for the opening of Democrat Joe Biden’s presidency.
