Democrat Sen. Raphael Warnock is engaged in a tight race with the embattled former football star Herschel Walker, the Republican nominee.
Warnock, as of Wednesday morning, had a slight lead, with 49.2% of the vote compared with Walker’s 48.7%, according to NBC News. Since neither candidate had reached a majority of the overall vote, as required by state law to claim victory, the two will battle it out in a runoff election, set for Dec. 6.
