The Democrat defeated Republican former football star Herschel Walker in Tuesday’s runoff, giving Warnock a full six-year term following the other runoff election he won just last year.
Warnock has now become the first Black senator to be elected to represent the state of Georgia for a full term.
As of Tuesday night, the race was still incredibly close, with Warnock less than one percentage point ahead of Walker. But, at 9:48 p.m. ET, Decision Desk HQ called the race for Warnock.
Warnock’s win ensures Democrats will have 51 seats in the next Senate, maintaining control of that chamber despite the House of Representatives narrowly flipping to Republicans.
