Warnock Beats Walker in Georgia

This pads Democrats' Senate edge

Sen. Raphael Warnock has defeated GOP challenger Herschel Walker in Georgia’s Senate runoff, giving Democrats a 51-seat majority next year and capping off an extraordinary defense of the chamber that saw every endangered incumbent win reelection.

Warnock, who won a special election runoff in early 2021 and has now earned a full six-year term, finished narrowly ahead of Walker in the November general election. But because neither reached the majority mark, they advanced to this week's one-on-one runoff, extending one of the most expensive and hard-fought campaigns in the country.

Warnock's victory means Senate Democrats protected every seat they had on the ballot this year, while also flipping the open seat in Pennsylvania to expand their Senate majority by one despite a tough political environment and low approval ratings from President Joe Biden.
