In about 45 minutes, Joe Biden will speak at the White House and take questions from reporters.
Expect the president to strike an optimistic note after his Democrats did better than expected in several crucial races nationwide, though it’s still possible they will lose their majorities in the House, Senate or both.
Ahead of his appearance, the White House released this video of him congratulating winners last night:
While not all Senate races have been called, there’s a possibility that the outcome of the run-off in Georgia will determine whether Democrats are able to hold the the chamber for another two years, or cede control to the Republicans.
If this all sounds familiar, it’s because it is: just last year, Warnock’s victory in a special election for Georgia’s Senate seat was crucial to establishing the Democrats’ current 50-50 majority in the chamber.
