Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-Ga.) has held onto his seat, defeating Republican Herschel Walker in a runoff race, MSNBC, CNN, Fox News, and The Associated Press project.

With about 95 percent of votes in, Warnock has 50.6 percent of the vote, while Walker has 49.4 percent. This runoff was held because neither candidate received more than half of the vote during November's election, when a third candidate was also on the ballot.
