Races at state-level governorships will have prominent impacts on leadership and policies in each state. One of several states with a gubernatorial race underway is none other than Georgia.

In Georgia’s Senate race, momentum also appears to be with Republicans as well. Thus far, Trump-endorsed Herschel Walker appears on his way to winning the GOP primary, thus setting him up for a race against Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock.
