Democratic Senate candidate Jon Ossoff, whose race against incumbent Republican senator David Purdue is too close to call, spoke this morning and thanked his supporters.
“Georgia, thank you so much for the confidence that you have placed in me. I am honored, honored, by your support, by your confidence, by your trust,” he said in a live-streamed speech.
Projecting confidence at his chances of winning the race, he said:
“Whether you were for me or against me, I will be for you in the US Senate. I will serve all the people of the state, I will give everything I’ve got to ensuring that Georgia’s interests are represented in the US Senate.”
Remember: CNN has not yet projected a winner in this race. You can see the latest on where the vote stands here.
He reiterated his campaign’s promise to focus on combatting the coronavirus pandemic and delivering economic relief to people who have been impacted.
“I will work in the US Senate to support a robust public health response so that we can defeat this virus … and to rush direct economic relief to people who need help right now,” he said. “This campaign has been about health and jobs and justice for the people of this state, for all the people of this state, and they will be my guiding principles as I serve this state in the US Senate, ensuring that every Georgian has great health care no matter our wealth.”
