Democrats beat Trump-backed candidate and gain momentum in Senate

According to US media projections, Warnock, 53, won re-election, beating Republican Herschel Walker, a former American soccer star who is supported by Donald Trump.

Raphael Warnock got about 37,000 more votes than Herschel Walker in the November 8 first round. However, the Democrat fell short of the majority, which required a second round, this time on a ballot without a third candidate.
