Democratic candidate Raphael Warnock has defeated Republican incumbent Kelly Loeffler in the first Senate runoff election, according to projections by Associated Press, ABC News and NBC News. The other Senate race between Democrat Jon Ossoff and Republican David Perdue has not yet been called.

Democrat Raphael Warnock is projected to win one of two Senate runoff elections in Georgia, beating Republican incumbent Kelly Leoffler. The two Senate runoff elections will determine which party gains control of the US Senate. On Tuesday night, Georgia Secretary of State Secretary Brad Raffensperger says by noon on Wednesday, “we’ll have a better idea where we are are” with the results.

Ballots continue to be counted in the other runoff race

“They’re probably going to take a break here, I think, in the next hour. Try and get as much work as they can done tonight,” Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said. “At least, record exactly how many ballots are out there and then get as much scanning done tomorrow. Hopefully by noon we’ll have a better idea where we are.”
