On Jan. 5, Georgia held runoff elections for its two Senate seats. Major news outlets have called the election for the Democrats, ousting both Republican incumbents and leaving the Senate evenly split. Under a 50-50 split, Vice President-elect Kamala Harris would cast the tiebreaking vote, effectively giving control to Democrats. With control of the White House and both chambers of Congress, President-elect Joe Biden has received an accommodative path for his agenda.
