Our first Black Senator has taken his place in the Senate. This morning as the sun made it’s beautiful guest appearance there wasn’t a supporter of both Rev. Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff who wasn’t playing one of America’s most loved songs “Georgia”. Cue music from Ray Charles..
It’s official! The Democrats have won both Georgia Senate seats which also means that they/we will have the U.S. Senate majority. The final tallies were calculated and call the winners on today, Wednesday January 6th. Goodbye Trump and HELLO President-elect Joe Biden’s and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris. Repeat after me…. Georgia has it’s first Black Senator!! Did I mention that he happens to also be from my hometown of Savannah, Georgia? It’s an honor to have him and a great friend of mine Mayor Van Johnson of Savannah pictured below. Two amazing Savannah men who attended HBCU’s.
The race was ran and conquered. It’s a proud day here in Georgia for so many people who worked tired less to make sure that Georgia’s Senate seats were flipped. It’s definitely a new yet brighter day here. Both Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock, Democratic challengers both represented the diversity of their party’s evolving coalition and gracefully defeated Republicans David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler. Historically President-elect Joe Biden became the first Democratic presidential candidate to carry the state since 1992. Can you believe that its been 28 years? Whew! That’s a long time.
Rev. Raphael Warnock served as pastor for the exact same Internationally known Atlanta church where civil rights leader the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. preached. What a glorious day it is to have a Black Man of Faith be appointed to the Senate. God definitely had his hand in the mix of this election. This week will be marked as a day that history was made. Congratulations to Senator Raphael Warnock and Senator Jon Ossoff.
