It is shameful that in a state with so many black Americans (13% in New Jersey compared to 30% in Georgia), it takes over 230 years before this can happen.

Democrat Raphael Warnock, the pastor of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.’s former church in Atlanta, defeated Republican Sen. Kelly Loeffler in a hotly contested runoff election, making him the first Black American to represent Georgia in the Senate and the first Democrat to do so since 2005. - The Wall Street Journal
