Raphael Warnock is within the driver’s seat of the Georgia Senate runoff

According to Dave Wasserman of NBC News/The Cook Political Report, Senator Raphael Warnock is in the driver’s seat of the Georgia Senate runoff.

Aquarius tweeted:

At this point, turnout would have to be unusually rough in Metro Atlanta for Warnock (D) to lose. It’s going to be close, but he’s in the driver’s seat now. #GASES

Wasserman went on to list several outcomes that are good for Warnock:

Baldwin Co. (Milledgeville): Walker +0.5 in November, Warnock +0.2 today. A switch from red to blue unless there are a handful more pro-walker votes to count. Another great sign for Warnock (D). #GASES

Webster Co: Walker +20.8 in November, Walker +18.9 today. Tiny County but a good result for Warnock (D). #GASES

Georgia could turn out just as Republicans feared. The Democrats are extraordinarily organized, coming out to support Senator Warnock, while the Republicans are acting like they did in November and Herschel Walker breaks off at points.

Democrats had the stronger message compared to Republicans, who essentially argued that Walker sucks, but voters need to take one for the GOP team and still vote for him.

The election may not be officially called until later tonight, but barring one totally unforeseen event, Senator Raphael Warnock is in a strong position to win a full Senate term representing Georgia.
