Warnock, Walker locked in tight race for final Senate seat of 2022

ATLANTA — Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock and Republican challenger Herschel Walker are locked in a tight race in Georgia's Senate runoff, with blue-leaning early voters breaking hard for Warnock but the red-leaning Election Day vote swinging toward Walker as those ballots were tallied later Tuesday night.

It’s Georgia’s third Senate runoff election in the last two years, after Warnock and fellow Democrat Jon Ossoff flipped control of the chamber with their dual wins in January 2021.

The majority isn’t on the line this time, with Democratic wins in Arizona, Nevada and Pennsylvania securing 50 seats last month. But 51 would give the party more room to operate on nominations and legislation over the next two years — and it would also provide a little extra breathing room ahead of a 2024 Senate map that gives Republicans significant opportunities to win seats.

Georgia won’t be on the Senate battleground map next time — but it will be hotly contested in the presidential race after becoming a new Southern swing state in recent years. Democrat Stacey Abrams’ close loss to GOP Gov. Brian Kemp in 2018 was soon followed by President Joe Biden’s victory in the state and the pair of Senate wins months later.

This November saw a swing back to Republicans, with Kemp winning again in his rematch with Abrams and the GOP cruising across every statewide race — except for the Senate contest, where Warnock finished a point ahead of Walker but neither was able to capture a majority, triggering the runoff.

Both sides expect the runoff to be close as well, with high voter turnout, especially compared to past runoff elections. The early voting period saw several single-day turnout records set.

Walker was repeatedly dogged by scandal throughout the general election campaign — one of a series of candidates endorsed by former President Donald Trump in the 2022 primaries who ran into trouble in the fall campaigns.

As a candidate, Walker declared that he was against abortion access and anything that weakened families, like absentee fatherhood. But before the general election, Walker was accused of encouraging and paying for several women to have abortions, allegations he denied. His son, in a Twitter video, accused Walker of domestic violence against his mother. And another ex-girlfriend accused him of domestic violence during their relationship.

The Daily Beast also reported that Walker has three children out of wedlock, including one young son he hasn’t seen in person in years. POLITICO has not independently verified that reporting.

But Warnock has also had missteps. The senator wascriticized for using campaign funds to fight a lawsuit against him. And the Walker campaign has brought Warnock’s church’s business into the race. Ebenezer Baptist, where Warnock is a senior pastor, is the part owner of a low-income apartment building that filed to evict some tenants for low amounts of owed rent.

Warnock has said he’s not involved with the apartment building business and that no one has been evicted. Republicans have also highlighted Warnock’s own domestic troubles, including featuring police body camera footage in ads of his ex-wife saying the senator behaved as an “actor” in public.

Warnock has enjoyed a steep advantage in fundraising and spending: He raised more than double what Walker brought in this election cycle, which translated to more advertising during the extended campaign season, including ads about the domestic violence allegations against Walker.

Walker has leaned on Kemp in the runoff, following Kemp’s reelection win in November. The governor loaned out his field organizing team to Senate Leadership Fund, the GOP’s Senate super PAC backing Walker, and he started to appear at campaign events with Walker. Kemp even cut a broadcast ad on his behalf.

After Trump-backed candidates challenging Kemp and other Republicans lost in Georgia in the primaries, the former president stayed clear of the state. In lieu of a runoff appearance, Trump did a tele-rally for Walker on Monday night to help pump up his base voters.
