Thank you to all the poll workers and volunteers who counted every single vote! With the fate of the senate likely hinging on 2 runoffs in GA, it's gonna be paramount that immense pressure is put on establishment dems to defer to the expertise of progressive organizers like Stacey Abrams, Nsé Ufot, & Tamieka Atkins—it's on us to hold their feet to the fire.
