Sen. Raphael Warnock, D-Ga., claimed victory in a speech to supporters here after NBC News projected his victory over Herschel Walker.

“Thank you Georgia!” he said. “I want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart, and to God be the glory.”

“And after a hard-fought campaign — or should I say campaigns — it is my honor to utter the four most powerful words ever spoken in a democracy: The people have spoken.”

The win gives Warnock, who was first elected in 2020 in a special election, a six-year term through 2028.

Warnock paid tribute to his mother, Verlene Warnock.

“She grew up in the 1950s in Waycross, Georgia, picking somebody else’s cotton and somebody else’s tobacco,” he said. “But tonight she helped pick her youngest son to be a United States senator.”
