In Drama Resembling Election Night, Democrats 'Pull Off' Georgia Senate Victory In The Dark Of Night

Democrat Jon Ossoff on Wednesday morning claimed victory over Georgia Republican David Perdue in a critical runoff election that will determine which party controls the Senate, even as the race remains too close to call.

"It is with humility that I thank the people of Georgia for electing me to serve in the Senate," Ossoff stated in brief remarks delivered virtually. "Whether you were for me or against me, I will be for you in the U.S. Senate," he began. "I will serve all of the people in this state. I will give everything I've got."

But the contest between Ossoff and Perdue, whose Senate term ended on Sunday, is still neck-and-neck, with tens of thousands of votes yet to be tallied. As of 7 a.m. EST Wednesday, Ossoff had 50.2% of the vote with 98% of the results reported, according to Fox News projections.
