COLUMBUS, Ga. (WTVM) - December 6 marked Election Runoff Day in Georgia, where Senator Raphael Warnock defeated Republican Hershel Walker.


As a result of Warnock’s win, Democrats now have the 51-49 majority in the Senate.

The runoff was brought to a close a bitter fight between Warnock, the state’s first Black senator and the senior minister of the Atlanta church where Martin Luther King Jr. preached, and Walker, a former University of Georgia football star and political novice who has campaigned with the support of former President Donald Trump, according to Associated Press.
