The American televisions project that the Democrat Raphael Warnock prevailed to the Republican Kelly Loeffler.

Two very even races until the end.

The state of Georgia in the United States held the elections on Tuesday to elect the two senators from this state, an election in which Republicans Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue face off to defend their current seat against Democrats Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff.

With 98% of the votes counted, US broadcasters project that Warnock beat Loeffler.

If confirmed, Warnock would become the first African-American senator in history in this southern state, one of those who positioned himself in favor of slavery in the Civil War.
