Incumbent Senator Raphael Warnock (D-GA) is favoured to retain his Senate seat, according to betting exchange Smarkets.
- Smarkets shows Warnock with a nearly 77% implied probability of winning the December 6 runoff against Trump-endorsed Republican Herschel Walker.
- A Warnock victory would hand him a six-year term and deliver a 51st Senate seat to Democrats, ending the 50-50 Senate deadlock which gave Democrats persistent headaches for the first two years of President Biden's term in the White House.
