Former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams (D) celebrated Wednesday morning as it appeared that Democrats would take at least one of the state's two Senate seats following the previous day's runoff elections.

In a tweet, Abrams said her party had "roared" across the state as the Rev.

"With new votes joining the tally, we are on a strong path. But even while we wait for more, let’s celebrate the extraordinary organizers, volunteers, canvassers & tireless groups that haven’t stopped going since Nov. Across our state, we roared. A few miles to go...but well done!" Abrams wrote in the tweet posted after midnight Wednesday morning.
