We should keep in mind, though, that the results aren't official until the Republicans claim voter fraud.

Walker is perhaps about to do just that 🙂

I am waiting for furious tweets from the loser in chief and who he will be blaming. Previous the blame was on Melania following Dr Oz lost. Who’s next? 

That would be Kushner and Giuliani. With some justification I might add.

In the initial race Warnock led Walker by about 0.9% with Libertarian Party Leader Oliver getting about 2.1% (about 80,000 votes). Republicans counted on Libertarians to switch to Walker in the runoff, giving Walker the win. 

 

As it was Warnock beat Walker by 1.8% (about 97,000 votes), meaning most likely that majority of Libertarians either voted for Warnock or stayed at home. Oliver did not endorse either Warnock or Walker in the runoff.

 

Libertarian National Committee Chair person said prior to the primary election that in case of a runoff, she would encourage any Libertarians in Georgia to vote Libertarian and "others to vote their conscience."

So it seems Warnock got the Libertarian 'conscience' vote.

I suggest saving the celebrations for the real deal.

Going to drop my laundry then get a Thai massage to relieve the tension. I thought Warnock was going to lose there for a brief moment.
