CATASTROPHE for Donald Trump as Democrats ‘win’ Georgia race and Senate control

Nicola Sturgeon says Trump visiting Scotland is 'not essential'

If the Democrats manage to win both races the Senate will be tied in terms of seats, allowing incoming vice-president Kamala Harris to have the deciding vote if all break along party lines. Republican senators David Perdue and Raphael Warnock are facing challenges from Democrats Jon Ossoff and Reverend Raphael Warnock.

On Twitter election analyst Dave Wasserman posted: “I’ve seen enough.

“Raphael Warnock (D) defeats Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R) in GA’s special Senate runoff.”

However Twitter added a warning to the tweet stating: “Multiple sources may not have called the race when this was Tweeted.”

Ms Loeffler is refusing to concede defeat and insists she still has a path to victory.

He said: “Georgia, I am honoured by the faith that you have shown in me.

Donald Trump: Deepfake of US President discusses election

The Georgia election took place against a backdrop of heightened political tension with Donald Trump still refusing to recognise the November presidential election result.

The incumbent president has been alleging, without providing solid evidence, that the vote was rigged against him.

On Wednesday Congress will meet to officially certify Joe Biden’s election victory.

However President Trump has announced he will attend a rally in Washington DC rejecting the result.

On Sunday he retweeted a promotional video posted by one of the organisers adding: “I will be there. Historic day!”

The DC National Guard have been deployed to help manage the demonstrations.
