Many celebrities have been following along closely with the Georgia Senate race, and took to Twitter to voice their opinions over the latest developments.
The major news networks, including CNN, ABC News and CBS News, projected early Wednesday that Rev. Raphael Warnock has won one of the two Senate seats in Georgia, over incumbent Sen. Kelly Loeffler. The projected win is historic as the senior pastor of Atlanta's Ebenezer Baptist Church (where Martin Luther King Jr. once served) will become Georgia's first Black senator.
The second race -- between Republican senator David Perdue and Democrat candidate Jon Ossoff -- has not yet been called. Democrats will need to win both seats in order to take control of the U.S. Senate. They will already have control over the White House with the victory of President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris, as well as the House of Representatives.
Many A-listers slammed Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell -- with Hillary Clinton joking, "Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell."
. @staceyabrams had her election stolen from her. She then turned around and delivered Georgia in the general. And then took two senate seats. Booted 🐢 from Majority leader. WHEN THE STATUE GOING UP!? And how many jobs can we give her!? Answer: ALL OF THEM.
