Georgia GOP Sens. Perdue and Loeffler tied with Democratic challengers: Poll


Republican Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler are embroiled in razor-thin contests with their Democratic challengers in a pair of runoff campaigns in Georgia that will determine the fate of the Senate majority, according to a new poll.

Perdue, running for a second term, is tied with Democrat Jon Ossoff at 49%, with 2% undecided. Loeffler, appointed to the Senate in January by Republican Gov. Brian Kemp, trails Democrat Raphael Warnock 49% to 48%, well within the polls’ 3.5 percentage-point margin of error and with 3% undecided.

Republicans finished the Nov. 3 election with 50 Senate seats. But if the Democrats win both Georgia runoffs on Jan. 5, they will capture the majority by virtue of Vice President-elect Kamala Harris’s tie-breaking vote. Both campaigns are expected to be competitive. Georgia emerged as a battleground this year, with President-elect Joe Biden becoming the first Democrat to win the state’s Electoral College votes since 1992.
