With Democratic sweep in Georgia, Mitch McConnell will lose majority leader role
Georgia voters have spoken, and their voices resonate loudly in Kentucky: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell won't keep his job as the most powerful senator in Congress.
Tuesday's high-stakes runoff elections in the Peach State pitted two Republicans, David Perdue and U.S. Sen. Kelly Loeffler, against Democrats Jon Ossoff and the Rev. Raphael Warnock, with the GOP's current control of the Senate — and McConnell's role — on the line.
The Associated Press called the race for Warnock at 2 a.m. Wednesday. He received 50.6% of the vote.
