Warnock’s win of a full six-year term gives the Democrats a 51-49 majority in the Senate, handing the Biden administration control of the legislative branch after sharing it with the GOP.
Unofficial state results show Warnock with 50.7% of the vote to Walker’s 49.2% with 94% of counties and precincts reporting. Fewer than 50,000 votes separate the two candidates. The race was called by NBC News, ABC News and CBS News.
“Thank you, Georgia,” Warnock tweeted shortly before 11 p.m. Tuesday. “We did it again.”
The run-off was held as neither candidate received 50% of the vote during the Nov. 8 midterm election.
Editor’s Note: I didn’t n want to post about anything political until the runoff was over, because I needed to know whether the G.O.P would be able to obstruct the President’s agenda.
Granted Manchin and Sinema can still prove to be an obstacle, but if in any event they aren’t this may help Dems to push through President Biden’s Agenda.
This is a developing story.
