How Alyssa Milano, Mark Hamill And Other Celebrities Reacted to the Georgia Senate Debates

Sunday night saw Senator Kelly Loeffler and Democratic opponent Rev. Raphael Warnock participate in a Georgia runoff debate where the Republican refused to acknowledge the election results three times.

The outcome of the race, as well the result of a second Georgia runoff on January 5 between Democratic challenger Jon Ossoff and incumbent Republican Sen. David Perdue will determine control of the Senate in the new Congress.

The GOP will be positioned to maintain its Senate majority if either Republican manages to hold on to their seat.

Loeffler avoided answering questions about President Donald Trump's claims of a "rigged" election during the debate while Perdue skipped the event altogether.

"It was very clear that there were issues in this election, there were 250 investigations open, including an investigation into one of my opponent's organizations for voter fraud. We have to make sure that Georgians trust this process for what's at stake in this election," she said.

"The promise that [Senate Minority Leader] Chuck Schumer made was to fundamentally change America and I'm making sure that we don't go down the road of socialism."

They deserve better than this cowardly crook. They deserve @ossoff & @ReverendWarnock for a better future."
