Mitch McConnell is taking some heat online after Democratic candidates were projected to win both Senate runoff races in Georgia, taking control away from Republicans and the title of majority leader away from McConnell.
Dave Wasserman, editor of The Cook Political Report and an expert in political forecasting, took to Twitter to project that both Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff would win their respective races in Georgia. He is considered one of the top election forecasters in the nation.
If the projections were to stand, it would bring both caucuses into a 50-50 tie, allowing incoming Vice President Kamala Harris to cast tie-breaking votes for Democrats. It would also mean that McConnell would no longer be majority leader.
I've seen enough. Raphael Warnock (D) defeats Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R) in GA's special Senate runoff. #GASEN
