DEMOCRATS RETAKE CONTROL OF THE UNITED STATES SENATE.
Democrats have taken control of the United States Senate—and they may have President Trump to thank for that.
Democrat Jon Ossoff claimed victory in his hard-fought Senate campaign over Republican Sen. David Perdue on Wednesday morning. And while some ballots continue to be tallied and a recount is possible, the leadership of Ossoff and Rev. Raphael Warnock over their GOP rivals is likely to expand, giving them victory and giving Democrats control over the Senate.
99 percent of the vote counted, Ossoff led Perdue by 50.2 per cent-40.8 per cent, a margin of more than 16,000 votes. That's a significant lead that's likely to grow as the remaining vote looks like it's
going to be overwhelmingly Democratic, but one that's below the 0.5% recount threshold of the state.
Warnock’s lead is even more comfortable, at 50.6 percent - 49.4 percent over appointed GOP Sen. Kelly Loeffler—a lead of more than 53,000 that’s well outside the recount margin.
