Ossoff claims a win in Georgia, but race too early to call

US Senate candidate Jon Ossoff is claiming victory in his race against Republican David Perdue, thanking Georgians for “electing me to serve you.”

The Associated Press has not declared a winner in the race between Ossoff and Perdue, which is too early to call.

Ossoff makes the comments in a speech on social media. He says the campaign has been about health, jobs and justice for Georgians.

He adds that he intends to serve all people in the state.

Georgia’s two Senate runoff elections will decide control of the US Senate. In the other race, the Rev. Raphael Warnock, a Democrat, defeated incumbent Republican Kelly Loeffler.
