Senator Raphael Warnock has won reelection, defeating Republican Herschel Walker in Georgia’s closely watched runoff.
Sen. Raphael Warnock: “It is my honor to utter the four most powerful words ever spoken in a democracy: The people have spoken.”
With over 95% of ballots counted, Warnock received 51.4% of votes to Trump-backed Walker’s 48.6%. During his victory speech, Senator Warnock also warned voter suppression remains a major threat. Raphael Warnock becomes Georgia’s first Black full-term senator and increases Democrats’ Senate majority to 51.
