(TargetLiberty.org) – Control of the Senate for the next two years was swaying on a knife-edge Wednesday morning, as the country waited for the last few thousand votes to be counted in the January 5 Georgia runoffs. With the Democrats victorious in one seat and a razor-thin margin separating the other, the direction of the country’s future is now completely unpredictable.
In a shock result, Democrat challenger Rev Raphael Warnock became the projected winner over Senator Kelly Loeffler (R-GA). If certified, he will become Georgia’s first black senator ever, and its first Democrat senator in 14 years. Warnock, a Baptist pastor, collected 51% of the vote with Loeffler close behind at 49%.

Meanwhile, the second race, between Senator David Perdue (R-GA) and Jon Ossoff, remains too close to call. Both candidates have 50% of the vote, with Ossoff leading by a few thousand. However, there are already disputes and suspicions, with rumors that some election officials stopped the counts when both GOP candidates were ahead. The ongoing fraud investigation into the 2020 election could soon expand to the Georgia runoffs.
If Perdue wins, the GOP will keep control of the Senate; if he loses, the upper chamber will be split 50/50 – with far-left Kamala Harris holding the tie-breaking vote for America’s future should she be sworn in as vice president.
