Republican Herschel Walker and Democratic incumbent Sen. Raphael Warnock are heading to a runoff after neither candidate reached 50% of the vote in the initial election, according to CNN.

Walker received 48.7% of the vote and Warnock received 49.2% of the vote, with 96% reporting, according to CNN. The candidates will face off on Dec. 6 in a runoff election.

Walker, a first time politician and former 1982 Heisman Trophy winner, campaigned as a pro-life and pro-family advocate who promotes Georgia-based companies and jobs, investments in the U.S. military, police funding and protection for American values of freedom and faith. Warnock, who defeated Republican Kelly Loeffler in a run-off in 2020, campaigned largely on healthcare and abortion rights.

Throughout the race, each candidate sparred over abortion and government spending, while also becoming the center of separate controversies. Two separate women accused Walker of paying for their abortions, while the securities and charities division of the Georgia Secretary of State Office launched a probe into Warnock’s church, questioning him after his church allegedly evicted low income tenants.

Though the race was heavily contested, Walker became the frontrunner of the race during the last week of the election, passing Warnock by 3.2 points with support from 49.7% of respondents, according to a Trafalgar poll released Monday, and leading in the RealClearPolitics average.

During the Georgia senatorial debate in October, the candidates defended themselves against their respective controversies as Warnock claimed that the eviction reports stemmed from false attacks from the Walker campaign, and Walker called the abortion claims a “lie.”

“I’m running against a desperate candidate. Anytime a candidate would stoop to the level of trying to sully the name, he and his allies, to sully the name of Martin Luther King Jr.’s church, and John Lewis’ church, you know that’s a desperate candidate,” Warnock said.

Walker denounced the abortion claims telling the debate audience, “That’s a lie.”

In the Georgia gubernatorial election, Republican Gov. Brian Kemp defeated Democratic challenger Stacey Abrams for the second consecutive time receiving 53.4% of the vote, with 96% reporting, according to NBC News. Kemp originally defeated Abrams in the 2018 Georgia gubernatorial election, leading Abrams to file a lawsuit against Kemp alleging he had worked to suppress voters.

  1. Unfortunately the GOP continues to run seriously inadequate candidates in so many cases. The Georgia race is a prime example; I wouldn’t vote for either candidate if I lived there

    . With a guy with dementia in the White House, terrible inflation and skyrocketing costs for everything, this should have been a good time for the GOP to take back the country. It didn’t happen in part due to running many substandard candidates. This is true in VT as well; a few good GOP candidates but many were seriously unpalatable.

    MAnd Trump has got to go. He is pure poison now. I voted for him twice but no more. Due to his massive ego he will destroy what is left of the GOP in a futile attempt to regain the presidency. DeSantis is our best hope and unless the GOP reigns in Trump NOW, he will destroy him in a fit of spite. Honestly, I think the GOP deserves the country we have now.

    • Unexplained ballot drops in at least three states resulted in Democrats being elected, and making the expected red wave look like a ripple.
      Are Nevada and Arizona next?

      AN EXPLANATION OF BALLOT “COUNTING”

      Batches of ballots are prepared well before the election. These batches are for heavily Republican areas, because Republicans likely do not mail in their ballots, and do not trust drop boxes after seeing the 2000 MULES movie.
      These Republicans vote, in person, on Election Day

      On Election Day, various false malfunctions are created, such as printers not printing and ballot readers no reading. Counting of all ballots is stopped and delayed, for as long as needed.
      Uncounted ballots are moved to a pre-selected, secure building with loading/unloading docks for trucks.

      The ballots of Republican areas are unofficially counted; no presence of observers!

      If the Republican margin is too great, some ballots for Democrats are substituted to reduce the Republican margin.
      This margin is compared with the estimated Democrat margin in Democrat areas.

      If the Democrat margin is greater than the Republican margin, the official counting is resumed, with presence of observers.

      If the Democrat margin is not greater than the Republican margin, some Republican ballots are removed from the Election Day ballots of Democrat areas, and substituted with prepared ballots for Democrats.

      When all is set, and the printers are magically printing again and the readers are magically reading again, and counting is started again, the Democrat candidate wins, which would be inline with the Republican RIPPLE, that was supposed to be a WAVE.

      The readers are smart enough to determine if a vote is Democrat or Republican, and with, NO WIRES, near field communication, NFC, can transmit that information to a nearby computer to keep accurate, real-time track of the voting trend, i.e., much better than “exit polling”.

      Prepared ballots for Democrats:

      1) Can be held in reserve, as needed, for later insertion.
      2) Can be used to displace Republican votes, as needed.
