Georgia Senate runoff live updates, analysis after Warnock win

Sen. Raphael G. Warnock (D-Ga.) and his allies centered ads around Republican Herschel Walker’s strict antiabortion stance, as well as leveled charges of hypocrisy over allegations from two women that he paid for their abortions. But abortion was rarely mentioned in ads supporting Walker. …

Democrats and their allies spent over $5 million on ads that include a reference to abortion in the Georgia runoff race since Nov. 8. Republicans and their affiliated groups spent roughly $6,500 on a single abortion-related ad in that same time frame.

Democrats largely focused their ads on character and abortion, with 30 percent of Democratic ads mentioning abortion. The GOP focused instead on character, President Biden, inflation and taxation.
