ATLANTA, GA – Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock is the projected winner in the U.S. Senate runoff election in Georgia. Warnock faced stiff competition against his Republican challenger Herschel Walker.
Even with control of the Senate already secured, the stakes are high as Democrats sought to win a majority outright instead of the current 50-50 split and power-sharing agreement. With a runoff victory, Democrats won’t have to rely on Vice President Kamala Harris’ tie-breaking vote and would have more control of key committees.
