Rev. Raphael Warnock, who defeated incumbent U.S. Senator Kelly Loeffler Tuesday in the Georgia senate runoff election and will become the first Black senator from Georgia once the results are certified, received high praise and congratulations in many tweets from Montgomery County and Maryland politicians.

During an interview on CBS News after he was proclaimed the projected winner, Warnock said, “And because this is America, the 82-year-old hands who used to pick someone else’s cotton went to the polls and picked her youngest son to be a United States senator.”

Senator-elect Warnock, has been the senior pastor at Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta since 2005. This is the same church where Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. served as co-pastor when his father was the pastor. His funeral was held at the church, according to the church’s website.

Warnock is the 11th of 12 children.
