Voting Has Concluded in Georgia. What's Next

( – The country anxiously awaits the results of Georgia’s two Senate runoff elections. The outcome of those elections will determine the balance of power in the US Senate.

Decision Desk HQ, an election monitoring website used by Newsmax and other news organizations, projected Raphael Warnock (D-GA) as the winner over Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) shortly after 11 pm Eastern. It then projected John Ossoff (D-GA) as the winner of his race against Sen. David Perdue (R-GA) about three hours later.

However, Sen. Perdue’s campaign posted a statement minutes after this announcement, reminding voters that it would take time before the election’s official results are determined. The campaign also vowed to use every available resource to make sure election officials count every “legally cast” ballot. Once that happens, the campaign is confident Perdue will be “victorious.”

It’s important to remember that the media and election monitoring sites don’t determine the outcome of elections. The final certification of election results falls on state officials, and it’s not uncommon to see the final results vary from earlier projections.

Remember “Dewey Defeats Truman?”
