The Georgia Senate runoff elections gained two new Democrat senators, and Latinos, despite being a small portion of the population in Georgia, had a lot to do with flipping the state.
Expert says Latino, Black, and Asian communities will be decisive in Tuesday’s runoff elections.
"I implore Georgians of faith, and of course, those with no faith at all, to trust and engage in this voting process," the Rev. Guillermo Arboleda said.
“Folks don’t really understand there is a runoff,” Maria del Rosario Palacios, who founded Georgia Familias Unidas, said. “They say, ‘No, no, no, I voted in November. I’m good.’”
A Latino teen co-launched Students for Tomorrow to help register thousands of Georgians to vote in the presidential election, and they did it again for the Senate runoff elections.
"No matter where I am or what I am doing, I am always going to use my voice to support the Latino community and help elect people who I believe will expand opportunities in our country to include Latinos and everybody else."
The Georgia Senate runoff election results will be a defining moment that will set the stage for the incoming Biden administration and the country.
