Neither of Georgia's Republican senators received a majority on Election Day, sending both races to a rematch in January.
- The two runoffs are highly important for both GOP and Democrats - it's Democrats' last opportunity to gain control of the upper chamber.
- If Democrats are to win both runoffs it will leave the Senate split 50-50, however, the vice-president could then tip the vote to favor Democrats.
- The Democratic majority in Senate is perceived as crucial if president-elect Joe Biden hopes to push through any of his legislative agendas.
- Republicans see Georgia's runoffs in January as the last chance to control Joe Biden's administration.
- Until now, Georgia has been seen as a conservative stronghold - the last Democratic candidate to win in the southern state was B. Clinton in 1992.
