Georgia Democrats react to election, unrest



Voters in Georgia react to this week’s Senate elections and the siege of the U.S. Capitol by a pro-Trump mob. (Jan. 7)

Tamarkus Cook, a 33-year-old funeral home owner in Newnan, says the Jan. 5 runoffs showed that people “were more determined to be heard than others were determined to suppress their voice.”

Cook lives in Coweta County, where the vast majority of voters cast ballots to return Republicans to the U.S. Senate.

Democrats have won both Georgia Senate seats — and with them, the U.S. Senate majority.

Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock, Democratic challengers who represented the diversity of their party’s evolving coalition, defeated Republicans David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler.

That’s a stunning defeat for President Donald Trump in his final days in office and it dramatically improves the fate of President-elect Joe Biden’s progressive agenda.

In Atlanta, Democrat and Sociology professor Anne Borden said while she was pleased with the Senate runoff results, the incidents in Washington were about race and power.

“We need to have a national conversation about race that is a conversation about whiteness. What happened yesterday was an incident that was about race,” Borden said.
