Hank Johnson among 5 incumbent Democrats returned to U.S. House of Representatives
ATLANTA, GA–Incumbent Democrat Raphael Warnock appears headed for a Dec. 6, runoff against Republican Herschel Walker for Georgia’s U.S. Senate seat, according to unofficial results posted with the Secretary of State from last night’s election.
Warnock edged ahead slightly with 49.34% (1,923,800), while Walker was close by with 48.60% (1,894,928), according to unofficial results. Since neither received more than the 50 percent, however, a runoff would be held.
