ATLANTA — The Democratic Senate primary in Georgia is too early to call. In Georgia, candidates must win more than 50% of the vote to avoid a runoff. With more than three-quarters of the expected votes counted as of 5:00 a.m., Jon Ossoff has approximately 49% of the counted vote.
He leads Teresa Tomlinson, who has roughly 15% of the counted vote, and Sarah Riggs Amico, with about 13%.
The winner will challenge Republican U.S. Sen. David Perdue in November.
If no one candidate receives 50% plus one vote, the top two vote-getters will proceed to a runoff on August 11.
Results are delayed because multiple problems at polls across the state lead to some polling locations remaining open late into the night.
