Georgia witnesses its new Senate finally with the Democratic win after a nail-biting contest between the Republican incumbents and Democrats.
Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff defeated Republican candidates Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue respectively making the Democratic majority in Senate giving President-elect Joe Biden control in the US Senate.
Democrats will control the Senate, the House of Representatives and the White House for the first time since 2009.
The Georgia election was a rerun because none of the candidates in the November general election achieved the 50% needed for victory under state rules. With the Democrat’s victory now Senate sees unconventional change.
The results prove to be a serious blow for outgoing Republican President Donald Trump.
The very next day, the US Capitol was invaded by a Pro-Trump mob creating riots. As a result of which 4 people died and 1 woman was shot leaving 3 more injured. Soon after the riots, the US Congress tried to reconvene to confirm Joe Biden‘s presidency.
Later, the House held a democratic vote held to seek agreement over the Pennsylvania electoral vote.
