Rev. Raphael Warnock is the projected winner of the Georgia Senate runoff, unseating GOP Sen. Kelly Loeffler and Black Twitter is overjoyed.  A CBS News exit poll showed that Warnock received 92% of the Black vote, 66% of the urban vote and 67% of the vote from Georgia voters under the age of 30. 

With Warnock set to become Georgia’s first Black Senator, former gubernatorial candidate and voting rights advocate Stacey Abrams is the driving force that lead voters and Georgia to a victorious win.
