While Donald Trump still refuses to accept he lost the 2020 election, Sen. David Perdue (R-GA) conceded that he lost his re-election bid to Democrat Jon Ossoff in Georgia’s Tuesday runoff election.

“Although we won the general election, we came up just short of Georgia’s 50% rule, and now I want to congratulate the Democratic Party and my opponent for this runoff win,” Perdue said in a statement.

Democrats took both Georgia seats this week as Raphael Warnock also won his race against interim Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA).

As of now, the Senate is evenly split at 50-50. But since the vice president has the tie-breaking vote, Democrats will have control of the congressional chamber once Kamala Harris is sworn in.
