In some states (including Georgia), when none of the candidates receive 50% or more of the votes, an additional election called a "runoff election" is held. This year, Republican Senators David Purdue and Kelly Loeffler face Democrat challengers Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock respectively, as none of the four candidates received the required 50%. The current Senate split is 50-48 in favor of the Republicans, so winning these seats is crucial for both parties. The Republicans, if both or one of the candidates wins, can maintain their majority, or the Democrats can create an even split if both Warnock and Ossoff win.
Jon Ossoff (D) and Raphael Warnock (D) have won their respective runoff elections. The Senate split is now 50:50, marking a huge victory for Democrats.
