Warnock, Ossoff Democratic Victories Make History as Georgia Flips the U.S. Senate

With their historic victories in Georgia’s Jan. 5 runoffs, Rev. Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff will become the 49th and 50th members of the Democratic caucus in the U.S. Senate. Georgia AFL-CIO President Charlie Flemming also congratulated Warnock and Ossoff. “The Georgia AFL-CIO congratulates U.S. Senator-elects Rev. Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff for their tremendous, hard-fought victories. “From day one, both Rev. Warnock and Ossoff made their priorities clear: strengthen and expand affordable health care, tackle economic and racial inequality, and represent the interests of Georgia’s working people in Congress. Both understand firsthand the dignity that comes from hard work and the importance of a well-paying job with good benefits and the right to form a union. There is not a doubt in my mind that our state’s working families will be stronger with the two of them in office. We look forward to working with both Senators on passing labor law reform and COVID-19 relief in Congress.”
