Warnock Wins Georgia Runoff, Purdue-Ossoff Race Too Close To Call

What's Happening:

  • With roughly 98% of the vote in, analysts are projecting that Democratic challenger Rev. Raphael Warnock has defeated Republican Senator Kelly Loeffler 50.6% to 49.4% in the Georgia Senate Runoff. Warnock will be the first Georgia Democrat elected to the Senate in 20 years. He will also be Georgia's first black Senator.

  • Meanwhile, the other Georgia Senate Runoff between Republican Senator David Perdue and Democratic challenger Jon Ossoff remains too close to call. Right now, Ossoff has a slight edge over Purdue of 50.2% to 49.8%.

  • Now that Warnock has filled one of the seats, the Senate seat count is Democrats - 49, Republicans - 50.

  • The closely contested races are under tremendous scrutiny as they will determine control of the Senate. If Republicans win at least 1 of the 2 seats, they will maintain control. If Democrats win both of the seats, they will be tied 50-50 with the Republicans leaving Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris to be the deciding vote and thereby giving Democrats control of the Senate.
