Georgia presidential race continues to tighten, Perdue close to a runoff
The presidential race in Georgia continued to tighten Thursday as the state counted its remaining votes. Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden had slowly closed the gap with President Donald Trump, trailing by about 18,000 votes with 98% of the vote counted.
And a second Senate race was close to a runoff election in Georgia, with incumbent Republican Sen. David Perdue leading Democratic nominee Jon Ossoff with about 50.0% of the vote share. Perdue needs to secure at least 50% of the vote to avoid a runoff, and Ossoff and Libertarian candidate Shane Hazel have chipped away at his numbers.
The state’s other Senate election is set for a January runoff between incumbent Republican Sen. Kelly Loeffler and Democrat Raphael Warnock, the senior pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta.
