Louisiana Democratic Party Chair Congratulates Georgian Senators-Elect
BATON ROUGE, LA – (D) Senators-elect Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff defeated (R) incumbent Senators Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue, delivering a majority for Democrats in the United States Senate. Louisiana Democratic Party Chair Katie Bernhardt issued the following statement:
“Georgia voters secured a better future for working people across the country. Senators-elect Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff’s victory reaffirms that we are a country of the many, not the privileged few. Their victory also delivers Democrats a Senate majority that will work alongside President-elect Biden to bring this pandemic under control, improve vaccine distribution, and pass legislation that creates good-paying jobs.
This victory represents the hope people across our country need. This election was the result of over a decade of ground work, strong party leadership, great candidates and people across the nation coming together in solidarity to do what is best for the American people. Louisiana Democrats, now it is our time.”
