ABC News just called the race for Warnock! Say buh-bye, Kelly!

Next up, Ossoff is pulling ahead, but it's still too close to call that one.

Still at that point around 9am.


Warnock, who has never before run for public office, is the pastor of Martin Luther King Jr.’s former church in Atlanta. He will be the first Black senator from Georgia and only the 11th Black senator in American history. He won, in part, thanks to astronomical Black turnout.
Don't forget that, DNC.

There’s no doubt about it anymore. Democrats Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock swept the state’s U.S. Senate runoffs, a pair of stunning victories that flip control of the chamber and pave the way for Biden to pursue his legislative agenda in Congress.

The defeats of U.S. Sens. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue cemented the transformation of Georgia from a Republican bastion into a full-fledged swing state.

Not only did Ossoff and Warnock edge out the incumbents, they did it in convincing fashion.
EDIT: Also,

First, let’s give credit to the nitty-gritty work of the ground game. The Democratic campaigns, the state party, and an uncountable number of outside groups knocked on hundreds of thousands of doors and made millions of calls and texts just since the last Election Day, November 3.

[...]

In short, they manifested the vision of Stacey Abrams, who founded the New Georgia Project in 2013, arguing to many doubters that the state was turning purple, if not yet blue, thanks to demographic change—more voters of color plus more college-educated voters of every race, along with more liberal transplants from around the country. I won’t say Georgia is now blue—but it’s more blue than Iowa or Ohio, states where Democrats traditionally invest lots of money only to see them turn redder by the year. Georgia will get bluer still.

If you want to look really really really... really really really really far down ballot...

John Fetterman is running for US Senate in 2022.

He's awesome. Picture Bernie, except 50 years younger, more charismatic, and, like, 7 feet tall. Like, if you took Bernie's brain and put it inside Frankenstein's monster, that's Fetterman, LOL
