Jon Ossoff will finish first in Tuesday's Georgia Democratic Senate primary. It still remains to be seen if he will end up with more than 50% of the vote, which is needed to avoid an August 11 runoff. Former Columbus mayor Teresa Tomlinson is currently in second place.
As of late Wednesday, with 95% of precincts reporting, Ossoff had 50.2% of the vote, a percentage that has climbed several points from earlier in the day.
The latest live results are below.
The eventual nominee will meet incumbent Republican Sen. David Purdue in November. A runoff will help Purdue, as it will force Democrats to wage an intraparty fight for the next two months that will also delay the start of the general election campaign.
