Neck and neck racing takes place in Georgia too
In Georgia, Democrats should fear losing seats. There, Democratic Senator Raphael Warnock and Republican contender Herschel Walker find themselves in a neck-and-neck race. With more than 95 percent of the votes counted (or 3.9 million ballot papers), the two candidates actually tied for about 49 percent of the vote.
Georgia has been a Republican stronghold since 2005. Warnock successfully broke that dominance in previous Senate elections in 2021, then became the state’s first black senator. He will compete with Walker, who is known for his American football career and who has received huge support from Trump.
If neither candidate receives more than 50 percent of the vote, a second ballot will be taken. It will be held in December. If the Senate elections come for this one race, it may be a while before there is clarity.
