Two Senate seats are up in Georgia. In one, Jon Ossoff, who unsuccessfully ran for Congress in 2018, is slightly behind incumbent Republican David Perdue 49% to 48%.
Ossoff, a 33-year-old Jewish former journalist, got a boost after lashing out against Perdue in their most recent debate — on several issues, including an ad Perdue’s campaign ran that appeared to elongate Ossoff’s nose — went viral.
In a second race, Democrat Raphael Warnock is handily leading incumbent kelly Loeffler. Matt Lieberman, son of former Jewish Senator Joe Lieberman, has only 2.7 % of the vote.
Marjorie Greene, a QAnon-spouting candidate backed by Donald Trump, is winning her race for a seat in the House of Representatives, though with only a few thousands votes counted there.
Statewide, 5% of Georgia’s likely votes have been counted.
