Democrats Win Control Of US Senate
Democrat Jon Ossoff has won election to the US senate, meaning the party has won control of the house, which will make it much easier for Joe Biden to push through legislation when he is inaugurated.
The party won both of the Senate elections in Georgia, giving them a majority in both houses of the US Congress - the Senate and the House of Representatives.
Ossoff beat Republican rival David Perdue, while Ossoff's fellow Democrat Raphael Warnock beat Republican Kelly Loeffler to her seat in the state.
This means the Republican party no longer have a majority in the upper house of the US Congress - the Senate.
