Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-GA) is expected to defeat Herschel Walker and give the Democrats a 51-49 majority in the Senate.

Dave Wasserman of The Cook Political Report tweeted:

Wasserman’s tweet was not an official appeal, but a projection. Projections may change, but other outlets agree the likely outcome leans heavily towards Warnock.

The large number of pending Democratic votes is reflected in The New York Times predicts the outcome is most likely Warnock. CBS News called the election a Democratic leaning.

Walker was unable to top his November results to close the gap with Warnock. With much of the pending vote expected to come from Democratic strongholds in Atlanta and the city’s suburbs, there aren’t enough Walker votes on the day to overturn the seat.

Republicans have been described as gloomy and praying for a Herschel Walker Christmas miracle ahead of Election Day, but their flawed candidate selected by Trump, who has been plagued by personal scandal and didn’t always seem to know why he was running was unable to distract Georgia voters from the fact that his football fame was not a qualification for the U.S. Senate.
