Raphael Warnock has defeated GOP Sen. Kelly Loeffler, while the race between Republican David Perdue and Democrat Jon Ossoff is too close to call, according to NBC News.

Warnock claimed victory in a video livestream, speaking before he had been declared the winner. “Tonight we proved that with hope, hard works and the people by our side, anything is possible,” he said.

The Republican party of outgoing President Donald Trump needs only to win one of the two critical runoff elections in Georgia that will determine control of the Senate and potentially the fate of Joe Biden’s presidency.
