Controll of the US senate now comes to a decider seat after, the victory for Democrat candidate Raphael Warnock has been declared.

Raphael Warnock, 51 defeats republican candiate Kelly Loeffler in a closely fought election. Warnock is a senior pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta. Warnock is the first democrat candidate to be elected as a senator from Georgia in last 20 years.

No candidates recieved 50% of the casted votes in the elections held in November, which brought elections to the run offs.

Other seat in Georgia is being battled by Democrat Jon Ossoff and David Perdue. The GOP Senator is trailing in which by a very small margin.

GOP currently has 50 seats in the house, while the victory of Raphael has ensured 48 for the democrats. The victory of Perdue will make difficult for Democrat Presiudent to passs the laws. While, it would not be totally easy control over the  senate as the divison betwen the democrats is quite visible.
