In America, we elect senators to represent each state along with the House of Representatives in the Congress. Each senator is in office for six years, but every two years we have an election for parts of the Senate, and this year was one of those years for the state of Georgia. Democrat Raphael Warnock and Republican Kelly Loeffler ran for the special Senate election while Democrat Jon Ossoff and  Republican David Perdue ran for the normal Senate. After both elections went to a runoff, Warnock and Ossoff won for their respectful seats in the Senate, meaning that Democrats control the senate. 

America has been at war with itself for the last few elections, but because of the decision made, people are arguing with each other more and more. Even though there are people who believe that their party is right all the time, there are people who believe that both sides can be right. Sophomore Braden Hood stated, “People who believe that way don’t research enough.” He even hopes for the best even though his candidates did not win. Junior Braden Reeder believes the most important aspect of a senator should be his or her moral character. “They should be for God and the people of America.”
