Edison Research declared Raphael Warnock the projected winner of the Georgia runoff election early Wednesday morning.

Warnock gained an increasing lead over Republican Sen. Kelly Loeffler overnight as the final precincts were counted. Warnock received 50.6% of the vote and Loeffler received 49.4%, according to Edison Research.

Warnock gave a live-streamed victory speech late Tuesday night, paying tribute to his mother, saying she used to pick “somebody else’s cotton” as a teenager.

Warnock will be the first Black senator representing Georgia in the state’s history.

Loeffler has yet to concede, telling her supporters late last night, “We’ve got some work to do here. This is a game of inches. We’re going to win this election.”

“We are going to keep fighting for you,” she continued. “This is about protecting the American dream.”

Loeffler will remain a Georgia senator until the results of Tuesday’s election are finalized. She is planning to return to Washington Wednesday morning to join a small group of senators to challenge Congress’ vote to certify President-elect Joe Biden.

Edison Research has not declared a winner in the race against Democrat Jon Ossoff versus Republican David Perdue. Currently, Ossoff is leading with 50.2% of the vote and Perdue 49.8%. Under Georgia law, a trailing candidate may request a recount when the margin of an election is less than or equal to 0.5 percentage points. Currently, 98.8% of the votes have been counted, according to Edison Research.

Ossoff claimed victory Wednesday morning in a televised statement, while the media has not yet called the race.

“Georgia, thank so much for the confidence you have placed in me. I am honored by your support, by your confidence, by your trust and I will look forward to serving you,” Ossoff said.

If Ossoff is declared the winner, Democrats will have complete control of Congress, strengthening Biden’s standing as he prepares to take office on Jan. 20.

Biden’s 60 Minutes Interview Horrifies White House: ‘Does NOT Reflect the OFFICIAL Position’

Uh oh. Someone let President Joe Biden speak by himself again and damage control immediately ensued. President Joe Biden’s “60 Minutes” interview which aired on CBS Sunday was 60 minutes of pure torture for viewers and 60 minutes of pure angst for the White House; everyone but the president himself.

60 Minutes’ official Twitter account publicly called out the President’s answers with an embarrassing statement that his own administration was in disagreement with him:

“President Biden tells 60 Minutes that U.S. men and women would defend Taiwan in the vent of a Chinese invasion. However, after our interview, a White House official told us that U.S. policy on Taiwan has not changed.”

CBS’ Scott Pelley also discussed inflation; an issue drastically affecting the welfare and wellbeing of families. Biden deflected with zero sympathy:

As for President Biden’s son Joe, he is sticking with the narrative that Hunter is the “smartest” person he knows and that “there’s not a single thing that I’ve observed at all that would affect me or the United States relative to my son Hunter.”

Biden also said that while the “proof of the pudding is in the eating” in response to being asked if he is fit to be President, Biden did not commit to saying whether or not he will run for re-election. His “intention” is to run again, “but that’s just intention” he said. “Is it a firm decision that I run again? That remains to be seen.”
