Georgia Senate race will likely advance to a runoff on Dec. 6

The Georgia Senate race between Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock and Republican Herschel Walker remains too close for an official win as of Wednesday evening. 

What’s new: Neither candidate met the 50% threshold needed to win the race on Tuesday, per CNN. 

  • “Depending on the outcome of Senate races in Pennsylvania, Arizona, and Nevada, voters in Georgia could then — for the second consecutive election cycle — have the Senate majority in their hands,” said the CNN article
  • “That the race was so tight underscores the prevalence of ticket-splitters in Georgia this year,” said the same CNN article. “Republican Gov. Brian Kemp comfortably defeated Democrat Stacey Abrams, but Walker has lagged Kemp’s margin all night, while Warnock outpaced Abrams.”

Why it matters:  Officials from both parties told CNN they each intend to push on with their investments in Georgia.
