Ossoff, Warnock Senate Victories a Momentous Win for Retirees
The following statement was issued by Richard Fiesta, Executive Director of the Alliance for Retired Americans, regarding the results of the Senate runoff elections in Georgia:
“The 4.4 million members of the Alliance for Retired Americans, including our more than 69,000 members in Georgia, extend their congratulations to Senators-elect Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff for their hard won victories. Georgia voters turned out in record numbers and cast their ballots for two candidates who will put the interests of retirees and all Georgians ahead of the wealthiest Americans and corporations.
“These elections also mean the end to Senator Mitch McConnell’s control of the Senate. We look forward to halting constant threats to our earned retirement benefits and making progress on the issues most important to retirees, including ending the pandemic, strengthening Social Security, and lowering prescription drug prices.”
