Tuesday saw Warnock successfully defend his championship, according to the Associated Press and Reuters. Walker was more than 1% behind the incumbent. In Georgia, a candidate has to get 50% of the vote to prevail.
In November, both candidates engaged in a competitive battle. After nobody of them could win at least 50% of the vote, it was decided in a runoff.
On the campaign trail, both contenders came under intense examination.
Warnock was assailed by Walker's campaign, which questioned his character.

On the campaign trail, allegations of property mismanagement against Warnock surfaced. It has been said that Warnock and his church are associated with the company in charge of managing Colombia Towers' day-to-day operations. He serves as a pastor at Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, which owns the apartment. Many low-income renters reside at Columbia Towers. Warnock keeps refuting the accusations.
Walker was criticised for his views on abortion, which were often brought up when he was running for office.
With Warnock's win, the Democrats will have a complete 51-seat majority in the Senate.
