GOP Sen. Kelly Loeffler, Democrat Rev. Raphael Warnock advance to Georgia runoff vote

A 20-candidate race for a U.S. Senate seat in Georgia is down to two winners, incumbent Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R) and Democrat Rev. Raphael Warnock, a preacher at Martin Luther King Jr.'s Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta. Loeffler, a millionaire appointed to the seat by Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp (R) in 2019, spent the campaign battling Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.), who conceded Tuesday night and threw his support to Loeffler. Loeffler and Warnock will face off in a runoff election in January.
