The much anticipated 2020 Georgia election ended up being one of the most critical states in the 2020 Presidential election. Many bettors wagered on political prop bets on the 2020 Georgia election and other state and national elections through our recommended licensed online sportsbooks. Those that bet on underdog Joe Biden flipping Georgia blue received big payouts.
Many knew the election would not be decided by November 3rd, 2020. Allegations of voter fraud across the nation, along with lawsuits and a hand ballot recount in GA, worked in tandem to delay the general election results. However, the fun for Georgia is not over as sportsbooks continue to offer political betting action. Two Georgia Senate run-offs stand between Republican and Democratic control of the upper chamber – ain’t that just a peach?

In Georgia, state law requires a run-off when no candidate wins a majority vote in the regular election. The two candidates who receive the most votes advance to a run-off election to decide the majority winner.
Georgians will vote on two Senatorial run-off races on January 5th, 2020.

Neither Loeffler nor Warnock received a majority percentage of the Georgia general election’s votes, initiating their run-off race. GOP Congressman Doug Collins also appeared on the ticket, taking Loeffler’s votes and ostensibly causing the run-off.
Loeffler was appointed to the Senate by Gov. Brian Kemp after another Senator’s retirement. Since the retirement happened between the general or midterm elections, Loeffler’s race is a special or bye-election.
A similar case happened in the Perdue-Ossoff Senatorial race. Libertarian candidate Shane Hazel received around two percent of the vote, taking a majority away from the other two candidates and causing a run-off election between Perdue and Ossoff.
Currently, Republicans hold a 50-48 majority in the Senate. If both DNC candidates win, Vice President-elect Kamala Harris acts as the tiebreaker that gives the Democrats a 51-50 vote advantage.
The possibility of Democratic control of both the legislative and executive branches has significant implications for the future of foreign and domestic policy over the 2020-2024 Presidential term.

In 2016, Georgia was predicted to be closer than it actually was, with Donald Trump winning 50.44% of the vote compared against Hillary Clinton’s 45.35%. However, with a controversial gubernatorial election overshadowing the presidential election in the state, voter acrimony has an outside chance of swinging the state to the left in 2020. Georgia is definitely a state to watch.
