Press Release

Washington, D.C. – House Speaker Nancy Pelosi today released the following statement following the election victories of Senator-elect Reverend Raphael Warnock and Senator-elect Jon Ossoff:

“In the election, the people of Georgia went to the ballot box to vote for transformational, Democratic-led change.  Now, because of the courageous leadership of Georgians, America will have a Democratic Senate working hand-in-hand with our Democratic House Majority and President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris.

“Reverend Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff ran and won on the values of advancing equality and opportunity for working people across the state and the nation.  In sending these two outstanding Democratic Senators to Washington, Georgians cast their ballots for a fairer, accountable and more compassionate America.  Inspired by our beloved John Lewis, Senators-elect Warnock and Ossoff's hunger for justice will bring necessary Good Trouble to the Senate.

“Together, in under two weeks when we inaugurate the new Biden-Harris Administration, a unified Democratic Party will advance extraordinary progress For The People.  We will pursue a science and values-based plan to crush the virus and deliver relief to struggling families, safeguard the right to quality affordable health care and launch a plan to Build Back Better powered by fair economic growth.

“Congratulations to Reverend Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff on their historic victories.  And to every grassroots organization and volunteer: this win was carried by you.  We all join you in taking pride in what you have accomplished.”
