Takeaways from the Georgia Senate runoff

In the final 2022 midterms battle, Georgia voters gave Senate Democrats an extra cushion when they extended the party’s majority by reelecting incumbent Raphael Warnock. “After a hard fought campaign, or should I say campaigns, it is my honor to utter the four most powerful words ever spoken in a democracy – the people have spoken,” Warnock said Tuesday evening. His victory makes him the first Black senator elected to a full six-year term in Georgia history.
