Political Rewind: Morning After Runoff Election Underlines Record Turnout, Historic Result
Wednesday on Political Rewind: The Rev. Raphael Warnock has been elected the first African American U.S. senator from Georgia. His victory over Republican Sen. Kelly Loeffler puts the Democratic Party within one seat of capturing a majority in the Senate. Now, the focus turns to the race between Democrat Jon Ossoff and Republican incumbent David Perdue, where Ossoff holds a small but potentially unbroachable lead over the state’s senior senator.
Late into the night as the Democrats took the lead in both contests, President Donald Trump dipped into his well-worn playbook to unleash a barrage of tweets questioning the integrity of the vote.
