Wednesday afternoon on Political Rewind: A new presidential term begins and with it, a new political landscape in Georgia and across the United States. Following the inauguration of President Joe Biden, senators-elect Jon Ossoff and the Rev. Raphael Warnock are scheduled to be sworn in later today.

The pair of Democrats from Georgia will shift the balance of the U.S. Senate from Republican control, giving the Democratic Party control of both chambers of Congress for the first time in 10 years.
