Voters head to the polls in the race between Walker and Warnock


Polls are open in Georgia for in-person voting Tuesday in the fierce Senate runoff election between Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock and Republican challenger Herschel Walker.

The outcome of the Senate contest could have a major impact on Congress’ makeup and its legislative abilities, both for the remainder of President Joe Biden’s first term and for the 2024 political map.

The Georgia race went to a runoff after neither Warnock nor Walker won more than 50% of the vote in the November general election.

The high-profile election has been marked by dead-even polling, heavy spending and a cascade of personal scandals that have spilled into the runoff period.
