Senate Control – Herschel Walker, Raphael Warnock Advance To Senate Runoff Battle


Wow, can you say repeat?

Control of the US Senate came down to run-off elections in 2020, and it looks like it will come down to another run-off in the Peach State on December 6, 2022.

Neither Republican Herschel Walker nor incumbent Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-GA) was winning the U.S. Senate race in Georgia with a majority as of early Wednesday morning, and the two candidates are now headed for a runoff election on December 6, according to the secretary of state’s office.

Warnock was beating Walker by a razor-thin margin of less than one percent with 97 percent of precincts reporting, according to the state’s unofficial results.

Libertarian candidate Chase Oliver took two percent of the vote, which kept Walker and Warnock from crossing the 50 percent threshold as required by state law to win the election outright.

Secretary of State Chief Operating Officer Gabriel Sterling wrote on social media shortly after 2:00 a.m., “While county officials are still doing the detailed work on counting the votes, we feel it is safe to say there will be a runoff.”

This year’s runoff scenario could be all too familiar depending on the final race calls in Nevada and Arizona, where vote counting is ongoing and the races remain too close to call.

If Republicans win one of those, the Senate majority would once again hinge on Georgia’s runoff race.

Both Walker’s and Warnock’s campaigns expressed optimism Tuesday night about their prospects of winning.

Walker, a University of Georgia football legend and former NFL player evoked fictional NASCAR hero Ricky Bobby of Talladega Nights as he spoke to supporters at an election night event in Atlanta.

“I’m like Ricky Bobby. I don’t come to lose,” Walker said. “I told you he’s going to be tough to beat, but let me tell you what. He got the wrong Georgian here don’t he?”
