Georgia voters gave Senate Democrats an extra cushion when they extended the party's majority by reelecting incumbent Raphael Warnock on Tuesday.

The victory ends one of the most expensive and spirited contests of the 2022 midterm cycle, as Warnock faced Republican Herschel Walker, a football star who had been recruited by former President Donald Trump to help the GOP retake the Senate.

But after a series of campaign fumbles that brought serious questions about Walker's ability to serve, even from some Republicans, the campaign began to slip out of GOP hands.

Warnock's win also ends marathon elections for the Atlanta pastor, who makes history as Georgia's first Black senator elected to a full six-year term after going through a gauntlet of four high-profile races in about two years.

This story will be updated.
