Democratic candidates for Senate Jon Ossoff (L) and Raphael Warnock (R) bump elbows on stage during a rally with US President-elect Joe Biden outside Center Parc Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia, on January 4, 2021. - President Donald Trump, still seeking ways to reverse his election defeat, and President-elect Joe Biden converge on Georgia on Monday for dueling rallies on the eve of runoff votes that will decide control of the US Senate. Trump, a day after the release of a bombshell recording in which he pressures Georgia officials to overturn his November 3 election loss in the southern state, is to hold a rally in the northwest city of Dalton in support of Republican incumbent senators Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue.

The Rev. Raphael Warnock said Sunday his election victory was a "glimpse of God's vision" as he delivered his first sermon at Atlanta's Ebenezer Baptist Church since he and fellow Democrat Jon Ossoff won Georgia's Senate runoff elections.

(CNN)The Rev. Raphael Warnock said Sunday his election victory was a "glimpse of God's vision" as he delivered his first sermon at Atlanta's Ebenezer Baptist Church since he and fellow Democrat Jon Ossoff won Georgia's Senate runoff elections.

"Whoever would have thought that in the state of Georgia we would see the people of Georgia rise up and send an African American man who grew up in public housing, the pastor of this Ebenezer Baptist Church where Dr. King preached, and a Jewish young man, the son of an immigrant, to the US Senate?" Warnock said.

Warnock, the senior pastor at the church where Martin Luther King Jr. once preached, was projected early Wednesday to win Georgia's Senate runoff election against incumbent Kelly Loeffler, who conceded the race.

He said the tensions in that verse -- that something as holy as heaven still suffers violence -- were similarly seen on Wednesday when a pro-Trump mob stormed the US Capitol hours after Warnock's election win.
