Democrats win an additional seat in the US Senate

US President Joe Biden's party won an additional seat in the Senate after Democratic Senator Raphael Warnock managed to keep his seat from Georgia, according to estimates by US television networks.

The outgoing senator defeated Republican candidate Herschel Walker, backed by former President Donald Trump.

The two candidates faced each other in the mid-term elections that took place in November, but neither of them was able to decide the outcome of the first round, so this was the second round between them, and this election brings the curtain down on the mid-term presidential elections.

This victory strengthens the very small majority enjoyed by the Democrats in the Senate, which will allow President Biden to have greater influence in the main parliamentary committees, as well as this victory will greatly limit the influence of a moderate Democratic senator who worked to thwart many major projects of the Biden administration, but This victory does not change the balance of power in Congress, where the Democrats were able to maintain their majority in the Senate, which they lost in the House of Representatives in favor of the Republicans, who nevertheless hoped to achieve a victory much greater than that which they achieved in the end.
