Brian Kemp campaigned—and won—at a distance from Herschel Walker. What does that mean for Walker’s Senate runoff?
Despite a high-profile challenge from Stacey Abrams, Brian Kemp won re-election by seven points, a wider margin than in 2018. The rest of the Republican ticket rode his coattails to victory—everyone but Senate candidate Herschel Walker, who’ll head to a runoff against incumbent Senator Raphael Warnock, in a race that could, once again, decide party control of the Senate.
Tuesday night marked the second time Stacey Abrams had come up short in a bid to claim the state’s top job, after losing to Brian Kemp in 2018, and she lost this year’s election by a wider margin. Speaking to voters at her watch party, Abrams said, “While I may not have crossed the finish line, it does not mean we will ever stop running for a better Georgia.”
