Sen. Raphael Warnock narrowly defeats Herschel Walker in Georgia runoff

ATLANTA, Georgia (WDEF) – In a very tight race, Sen. Raphael Warnock has narrowly defeated Herschel Walker in Georgia’s Senate runoff on Tuesday.

Both candidates swapped the lead throughout the night, with just a few thousand votes separating them at times.

But with 95% of the vote counted, the Warnock lead grew to around 50,000 votes out of more than three million counted.

The Georgia Secretary of State has already promised an audit of the vote, before it was counted.

But if the results stand, Democrats will hold a 51-49 margin in the U.S. Senate.
