in the US state of Georgia, the democratic Senator Raphael Warnock has won the runoff against his Republican challenger Herschel Walker. This was reported by the television channels CNN, NBC and other US media last night (local time) based on voting counts and forecasts.

The Democrats of President Joe Biden are expanding their wafer-thin majority in the US Senate. Almost a month after the congress elections in the USA, the last open seat in the Senate was awarded in Georgia.

The Democrats had already secured 50 of the 100 seats in the Senate at the so -called Midterms in November - and thus again control in the important congress chamber. Because the Democratic US Vice President Kamala Harris, who is also President of the Senate, can vote in a patient situation. With the mandate of the Democrat Warnock, the party in the chamber now has a 51st seat - and a somewhat more comfortable majority than before.

Mostly can no longer brake

The first half of Biden's term has shown how important a 51st seat in the Senate can be for the Democrats. In particular, two senators from their own ranks made life difficult and blocked several of his political projects. Above all, the democrat Joe Manchin stood up again and again and snubbed his own party and the president. With the 51st seat, the Democrats are at least no longer to slow down from somebody alone.

Warnock and Walker competed against each other again in the runoff election, after both candidates remained just under 50 percent of the vote in the first attempt in early November. According to the state's right to vote, a runoff election was therefore necessary.

The election campaign in Georgia attracted a lot of attention. Because of the outstanding importance for the power structure in the Senate, well -known politicians of both parties intervened there. Against the 53-year-old incumbent Warnock, a black pastor, the Republicans sent the black ex-football star Walker into the race. The 60-year-old received support from Trump in the election campaign, but came under pressure by accusations of two women that accused Walker that he had pushed her into abortion with him after affairs. This is also piquant because Walker competed as a strict opponent. He rejects the allegations.

Obama Warb for Warnock

Biden could not be seen in Georgia in the election campaign before the runoff election - with his low popularity values, the party friend for Warnock would have been more political ballast. Instead, the popular democratic ex-president Barack Obama came to Georgia, where the proportion of black voters is higher than in many other states.

The Republican Walker received support from Trump shortly before the election. However, before the runoff election, Trump also looked at a joint campaign appearance - and instead campaigned on Monday evening (local time) at a digital event for Walker.

Trump had announced three weeks ago that in 2024 he wanted to go into the race again as a presidential candidate for the Republican. After his influence in the party has already decreased, another slump of a candidate he supported is particularly bitter for him. In general, the Democrats had cut unexpectedly well in the choice of congress. They lost their majority in the House of Representatives, but more scarce than expected.
