In stark contrast to Donald Trump, Sen. David Perdue (R-GA) conceded that he lost his re-election bid to Democrat Jon Ossoff in Georgia's Tuesday runoff election.
"Although we won the general election, we came up just short of Georgia's 50% rule, and now I want to congratulate the Democratic Party and my opponent for this runoff win," Perdue said in a statement.
Democrats swept both Georgia races, with Raphael Warnock beating interim Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA). The outcome means the U.S. Senate will be split 50-50, with the vice president breaking ties in their role as president of the Senate. That means Democrats will take control of the chamber on January 20th with Vice President-elect Kamala Harris is sworn-in.
