According to preliminary results, Democrat Raphael Warnock leads the state with 49.4 percent of the vote, but it’s very close: His Republican counterpart, Herschel Walker, has 48.5 percent. The last 2.1 percent went to Chase Oliver of the Libertarian Party.

Second round

Georgia has a law requiring a candidate to receive more than 50 percent of the vote. So a second, decisive round will take place on December 6 between Warnock and Walker.

Either way, the landslide Republican victory predicted across the country did not materialize. Reporter Eric Mouton explains why this might be the case:

And it’s still unclear who will win the Senate seats in Nevada and Arizona. If Republicans win those two states, they will have a narrow majority of 51 senators.
