    Dr. Rich McCormick and Jake Evans, whom Donald Trump endorsed, are heading to a runoff for an open and newly drawn congressional seat in Georgia. McCormick narrowly lost a House race in Georgia in 2020 and Evans is the son of Randy Evans, Trump’s former ambassador to Luxembourg.

    Late polls in the Alabama Senate race showed Katie Britt with a lead of 2 to 8 points over Mo Brooks, with around 10 percent undecided. Her margin tonight is looking like it will be easily in double digits. She picked up many of the undecideds, which bodes well for a likely runoff.

    Raffensperger has remained just above 51 percent with 81 percent of votes counted, still safe from a runoff. The majority of remaining votes are from Cobb, Gwinnett, DeKalb and Forsyth, all counties where Raffensperger has a more than 20-point lead.

    McBath, whose son was shot and killed in 2012, describes the “singular fear,” the “all-consuming fear” that parents feel about their children’s safety, as she alludes to the pain parents in Texas are feeling tonight.

    McBath has arrived at her victory party and receives a standing ovation.

    Some attendees at McBath’s watch party are wearing Moms Demand Action shirts, a nod to the gun violence prevention group. At least one has lost a child to gun violence, as Ms. McBath did.

    Brian Kemp’s daughter Amy Porter is introducing her father in a tearful address to supporters. She thanked everyone for their support and talked about the family’s role in his campaign — they’ve traveled across the state alongside him.

    The television screens at Brian Kemp’s election watch party are on now. It is showing a highlight reel of Mr. Kemp’s campaign over the last year.

    Tonight could be a big rebuke for Trump as a would-be kingmaker. Kemp has already scored an easy win against the former president’s chosen candidate, and a Raffensperger victory would be a vindication for those who want to move on from 2020.

    Before Herschel Walker was to claim his victory, his best friend said he had a special guest on the phone, former President Donald J. Trump. But when they patched him through, they got a busy signal. Now the event is on hold for Mr. Trump.

    Though Raffensperger appears to be maintaining a comfortable lead over Hice, the magic number is staying above the 50 percent threshold to avoid a runoff. He’s at 50.4 percent with 33 percent of precincts reporting.

    At Mo Brooks’s watch party, a supporter took the stage to announce that results would be a while in coming in, but “we expect really good news tonight.”

    There are no TV screens at Brian Kemp’s election night watch party. So even though the race has been called for him, it’s unclear whether the hundreds of folks in attendance know that’s the case.

    Though not quite keeping pace with Kemp, Raffensperger is doing well in counties where Kemp is maintaining a significant lead. So is Chris Carr, the Republican candidate for attorney general running against John Gordon, the Trump-endorsed candidate.

    A huge roar in the stately ballroom of the Georgian Terrace Hotel when Herschel Walker’s victory is announced, but the football hero will not address the gathering until after President Biden addresses the nation on the horrific shooting in Texas.

    Warnock is regarded as a strong candidate. But Democrats worry about the challenges facing even their most politically skilled, best-resourced contenders in this challenging national environment for their party.

    Last week, in an interview with The Times, David Perdue guaranteed he wouldn’t lose by 30 points. So far, he’s spot on – Mr. Perdue is trailing Gov. Brian Kemp by 50 points.

    The more interesting result there? Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger up by a mere 50 to 42 percent. The polls showed a much tighter race in the secretary of state contest, and that kind of result in Richmond County already starts to raise the possibility of a runoff.

    Stacey Abrams’s race will test the degree to which a strong political brand can mitigate challenging national headwinds for Democratic candidates.

    Brad Raffensperger, Georgia’s secretary of state, is expected in about an hour at his campaign party at a restaurant in Peachtree Corners, an upscale planned community in Gwinnett County.
