The Georgia Senate race between Herschel Walker and Raphael Warnock is headed to a runoff election on December 6th.
According to Georgia law, this has to happen when neither candidate crosses the 50 percent mark.
This is annoying but it also means that this seat is still in play.
WALB News reports:
Georgia election results; Warnock, Walker race headed to Dec. runoff
Tuesday was a big Election Day for the Peach State.
Governor Brian Kemp defeated Democrat challenger Stacey Abrams to win a second full term.
Democrat Senator Raphael Warnock and Republican Challenger Herschel Walker will face off once again in a Dec. 6 runoff election.
Polls opened at 7 a.m. on Tuesday and will start to close at 7 p.m.
The Peach State saw record-breaking voter turnout during the early voting period.
Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said he estimated that “more than twice as many Georgians will vote (Tuesday) as voted on Election Day in 2020.”
This year, Raffensperger pointed out, Georgia achieved the record for midterm absentee-by-mail voting.
On Tuesday, Dougherty County precincts are also preparing for another high voter turnout.
Elections Supervisor Ginger Nickerson told WALB News 10 Tuesday morning that they have more than enough poll workers to accommodate the expected high turnout.
Conservatives are hoping for a win here.
Don't give up on this man!
It takes seconds to say a prayer 🙏Herschel Walker prevails in Georgia.

Unbelievable for some, but not for others. If you give #34 the ball, he will score every time.
