Herschel Walker Forces Raphael Warnock Into Senate Runoff in Georgia


According to a Decision Desk HQ projection, Republican Herschel Walker forced incumbent Democratic Senator Raphael Warnock to enter a December runoff for the U.S. Senate.

Warnock defeated Kelly Loeffler to win a special election in 2020. However, the seat was up for reelection in 2022. Although Warnock had a lead early in the race, his lead declined in the final weeks of the race and forced the runoff.

Walker’s victory/return at the polls is a result of Democrats attacking him over two separate allegations that Walker paid for abortions for women. Walker claimed that he had never paid for either of these in the final days of the race.
