Jon Ossoff wins, Democrats Take the U.S. Senate


Democrats Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock‘s runoff victories in Georgia have flipped the Senate, giving Democrats control.

The democrats win has balanced the legislative body 50-50, therefore Vice President-elect Kamala Harris has the pivotal role as tie-breaker.

Control of the Senate will give incoming President Joe Biden the ability to implement his legislative plans without resistance.

Ossoff thanked voters and supporters in a video, he shared on Twitter.

The news of the Democratic win came to light amidst the chaos of a violent mob of Trump supporters descending on Washington. President Donald Trump employed his supporters to storm the Captial building, where the congress sat counting electoral votes. Following his instructions, the peace protest supporters quickly turned into a mob.

The mob stormed the Captial building, which forced Vice President Mike Pence to be evacuated. Congressmen and women hid in rooms as the rioters raged through the federal building, vandalizing and looting items.
