Statement On Georgia Senate Races

Jan 06, 2021

MARYLAND Wednesday, January 6th, Yvette Lewis, Chair of the Maryland Democratic Party, released the following statement after the Associated Press called both Georgia Senate runoff elections for the Democratic candidates:

“Congratulations to Senators-elect Warnock and Ossoff. Now, it’s time to get to work building America back better. With a Democratic Senate, the Biden-Harris administration can begin to address the COVID-19 pandemic, rebuild our economy, ensure affordable health care is available to all, and combat the climate crisis. 

“A huge thank you to each and every Democrat — especially the Maryland Democrats — who helped make this moment possible. This victory could not have happened without the thousands of phone calls and hours of organizing that you put in. Together, we have reshaped the Senate, and the entire American political landscape.” 

“I look forward to seeing the two Georgia Senators working side by side with Maryland’s Senators— for the good of all Americans.“
