Herschel Walker and Raphael Warnock locked in too-early-to-name Georgia Senate race - CNN

CNN  — 

The hotly contested Senate contest in Georgia is simply too early to call virtually six hours after most polls closed in the state, with Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock and Republican challenger Herschel Walker locked in a good race that could make a decision control of the USA Senate.

If neither candidate surpasses the 50% threshold, Warnock and Walker will proceed to a December 6 run-off. counting on the effect of Senate races in Pennsylvania, Arizona and Nevada, voters in Georgia could then – for the 2nd consecutive election cycle – have the Senate majority of their palms.

That the race is so shut underscores the incidence of ticket-splitters in Georgia this 12 months. Republican Gov. Brian Kemp with no trouble defeated Democrat Stacey Abrams, CNN projected, but Walker has lagged Kemp's margin all nighttime, while Warnock has outpaced Abrams.

In brief remarks on Tuesday evening, Walker requested supporters gathered in a resort ballroom to "dangle in there a bit bit longer."

"I'm telling you right now – I didn't come to lose," Walker talked about.

Warnock has now not yet addressed the group at his election evening headquarters. however on Monday evening, he joked to CNN about a possible run-off crusade.

"I feel that there's bipartisan settlement that we (would) rather no longer have politics and Thanksgiving blended collectively," Warnock mentioned.
