The 2020–21 United States Senate election in Georgia was held on November 3, 2020, and on January 5, 2021 (as a runoff), to elect the Class II member of the United States Senate to represent the State of Georgia. Democrat Jon Ossoff defeated incumbent Republican Senator David Perdue in the runoff election. The general election was held concurrently with the 2020 presidential election, as well as with other elections to the Senate, elections to the U.S. House of Representatives and various state and local elections.

No candidate received a majority of the vote during the general election on November 3, so the top two finishers—Perdue (49.7%) and Ossoff (47.9%)—advanced to a runoff election, held on January 5, 2021. The runoff was held concurrently with the special election for Georgia's other U.S. Senate seat (which had also advanced to a runoff), in which Republican incumbent Kelly Loeffler lost to Democratic nominee Raphael Warnock. After the general round of elections, Republicans held 50 Senate seats and the Democratic caucus 48 (including two independents who caucus with them). As a result, the two runoffs decided control of the Senate under the incoming Biden administration. By winning both seats, Democrats took control of the chamber, with Vice President Kamala Harris's tie-breaking vote giving them an effective majority. The extraordinarily high political stakes caused the races to attract significant attention nationwide and globally.

On January 6, 2021, most major news outlets projected Ossoff the winner, in the midst of the US Capitol insurrection.[1][2] Perdue conceded the race on January 8.[3][4] According to the Center for Responsive Politics, this campaign was the most expensive in U.S. Senate history, with over $468 million spent.[5] Ossoff's victory, along with Warnock's, gave the Democrats control of the Senate for the first time since 2015. Ossoff became the first Democrat elected to a full term in the Senate from Georgia since Max Cleland, who held this seat from 1997 to 2003, and the first Jewish member of the Senate from the state.[6] Ossoff became the youngest senator since Don Nickles won in 1980, and the youngest Democrat since Joe Biden won in 1972. Georgia election officials certified Ossoff's victory on January 19, 2021; he was sworn in on January 20.[7] This election and the special election both mark the first time since 1994 that both Senate seats in a state have flipped from one party to the other in a single election cycle. With a margin of 1.2%, this election was also the closest race of the 2020 Senate election cycle.

Debates[edit]

The first debate between Hazel, Ossoff, and Perdue occurred virtually[57] on October 12.[58]

A second debate between Ossoff and Perdue, held on October 28[e] in Savannah and aired on television station WTOC-TV,[59] was more heated and made national headlines, with Ossoff saying that Perdue had claimed "COVID-19 was no deadlier than the flu", was "looking after [his] own assets, and ... portfolio", and that Perdue voted "four times to end protections for preexisting conditions".[60] Ossoff also called Perdue a "crook" and criticized him for "attacking the health of the people that [he] represent[s]".[61] Perdue said Ossoff will "say and do anything to my friends in Georgia to mislead them about how radical and socialist" his agenda is.[62] Video of the exchange went viral.[57][61]

The next day, October 29, Perdue said he would not attend the third and final debate, previously scheduled to be broadcast on WSB-TV on November 1; instead Perdue decided to attend a rally with President Trump in Rome on the same day[63]—"as lovely as another debate listening to Jon Ossoff lie to the people of Georgia sounds",[62] according to a Perdue spokesman.

On December 6, Ossoff debated an empty podium as Perdue declined to participate in a Georgia Public Broadcasting-held debate.[64] Ossoff criticized Perdue's absence, accusing him of skipping the event because of the negative response to his performance in the October debates.

Results[edit]

No candidate received a majority of the vote on November 3, so the top two finishers—incumbent Republican senator David Perdue (49.7%) and Democratic challenger Jon Ossoff (47.9%)—advanced to a runoff election held on January 5, 2021.[112][113]

Voters whose mail-in ballots were rejected were allowed to submit corrections until 5pm on November 6.[114][115]

Runoff[edit]

The runoff election between Perdue and Ossoff was on January 5, 2021,[117] alongside the special election for the Georgia U.S. Senate seat held by Republican Kelly Loeffler.

Following the 2020 Senate elections, Republicans held 50 Senate seats and the Democratic caucus 48.[118] Since Democrats won both Georgia runoffs, their caucus gained control of the Senate, as the resultant 50–50 tie is broken by Democratic vice president Kamala Harris. If the Democrats had lost either race, Republicans would have retained control of the Senate.[119] The high political stakes caused the races to attract significant nationwide attention.[120][121][122] These elections are the third and fourth Senate runoff elections to be held in Georgia since runoffs were first mandated in 1964, following runoffs in 1992 and 2008.[123] It is also the third time that both of Georgia's Senate seats have been up for election at the same time, following double-barrel elections in 1914 and 1932.[124]

The deadline for registration for the runoff election was December 7, 2020. Absentee ballots for the runoff election were sent out beginning on November 18, and in-person voting began on December 14.[125][126] Ossoff's runoff campaign largely focused around accusing Perdue of corruption as well as agressively courting Black voters in an attempt to drive up turnout, while Perdue characterised Ossoff as a socialist and accused him of having ties to the People's Republic of China.[127] Perdue's campaign was hampered by his refusal to state that Joe Biden had won that year's presidential election, which made it exceedingly difficult for him to argue that an Ossoff victory would create a Democratic trifecta.[128]

Results[edit]

2021 United States Senate election in Georgia runoff[132]
Party Candidate Votes % ±%
Democratic Jon Ossoff 2,269,923 50.6% +5.4%
Republican David Perdue (incumbent) 2,214,979 49.4% −3.5%
Total votes 4,484,902 100.00% N/A
Democratic gain from Republican

Ossoff won the inner ring of the Atlanta area by a larger margin in the runoff than in the general election, which was more than enough to overcome Perdue winning more counties. He flipped Cobb and Gwinnett counties, which had voted for Perdue in 2014, winning by over 43,400 and 74,800 votes respectively, with the latter exceeding his statewide margin of 54,900 votes.[133]

Perdue flipped Burke, Chattahoochee, Dooly and Twiggs counties, which he had failed to win in 2014, as well as the previously tied Baker County.[134]
