Democratic Sen Raphael Warnock defeated Republican Herschel Walker in Georgia’s runoff election on Tuesday, December 6, securing a 51-seat majority in the US Senate for the Democrats.
Speaking to a crowd at his election party in Atlanta, Warnock said: “Let’s dance because we deserve it, but tomorrow we go back into the valley to do the work.”
Warnock’s supporters could be heard cheering and shouting “six more years” throughout the acceptance speech.
President Joe Biden tweeted that he called Warnock to congratulate him. “Here’s to six more years,” Biden said.
