Asian and Latino Voter Turnout Leads to Democrat Victory in Georgia Senate Runoff
Raphel Warnock defeats Republican Senator Kelly Loeffler in Neck to Neck race, Ossoff Declares Victory
(ATLANTA, GA) – Georgians have spoken. Turning out in overwhelming numbers, a diverse coalition of voters has elected Reverend Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff to the United States Senate, giving Democrats control of the Senate for the first time in six years. Warnock, the first African American Senator from Georgia, and Ossoff are the first Democrats to represent the Peach State in the Senate in nearly two decades.
“Georgians have rejected a future held ******* by Mitch McConnell, and given America a chance at building a better tomorrow,” said Mustafa Tameez, Founder and CEO of the Blue Turnout Super PAC. “Today’s historic victories would not have been possible without the record numbers of Asian American and Latino voters who turned out in metro Atlanta and across the state, charting a new path forward in our country. Asian and Hispanic voters helped provide the political support to shift the election, and they did.”
Throughout the runoffs, Blue Turnout Project has dedicated its efforts to increase voter participation within Asian and Latino communities. After Democrats successfully flipped the state blue in the November presidential race, with Georgia having historic voter turnout, energizing and mobilizing the Asian and Hispanic voters were essentially key to the Senate runoff elections’ victories.
With a Democratic Congress and Senate, the path will be clear for President-Elect Biden to enact a platform of progressive policies to improve the lives of every American.
