Incumbent Warnock wins historic Senate runoff

by The 100 Companies

Democratic Senator Raphael Warnock defeated Republican challenger Herschel Walker in Georgia’s Dec. 6 senate runoff election. Warnock’s win ensured Democrats would keep the Senate majority for the remainder of President Joe Biden’s term, with a 51-49 split.

While Democrats maintained control of the Senate, now with an outright majority, this election cycle, Republicans flipped control of the House in their favor.

Election day voter turnout for the runoff increased by 200,000 voters, surprising election officials. While election-day voting increased for the runoff, overall voter participation was down compared to the Nov. 8 general election, from 3.9 million voters to 3.2 million.
