Add one more Republican to the new Senate!

Louisiana’s U.S. Senate runoff election was held Saturday, and Republican John Kennedy was projected the winner, giving the GOP a 52-seat majority in that chamber.

Kennedy currently serves as the Pelican State’s treasurer, and the election pitted him against Public Service Commissioner Foster Campbell, a Democrat.

Kennedy’s victory “caps a year of historic Republican wins up and down the ballot,” Republican National Committee co-chair Sharon Day said, according to The Hill.

“And with 52 seats in the U.S. Senate, we are excited for Republicans to confirm a conservative Supreme Court justice and begin working with President-elect Trump to pass an agenda of change for the American people,” she said in a statement.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was also delighted with the new addition to his side of the aisle.

“Senate Republicans are ready to lead and we look forward to John joining our team,” The Kentucky Republican said in a statement.

Vice President-elect Mike Pence, who in that position will serve as the president of the Senate, tweeted his congratulations.

It’s as though all the planets are aligning to “make America great again.”
