Cook Political Report’s Dave Wasserman has seen enough. The data expert called the Georgia runoff election for Democrat Raphael Warnock, who he says will defeat Republican Kelly Loeffler. The call came early, as Georgia’s senate runoff elections are tight and have yet to be called by major outlets.

UPDATE 12:05 a.m.: Wasserman has now also called the second Georgia runoff election. He projects that Democrat Jon Ossoff will beat David Perdue, in a race that is currently razor thin. “Democrats win control of the Senate,” Wasserman said.

Editor's updates:

5:30 am: Early this morning the NYT called  the race for the Rev. Raphael Warnock, saying the Ossoff-Perdue race remains too close to call.

4:01 am USA TODAY: "Trailing much of the night, Ossoff surged ahead of Perdue by more than 8,500 votes after batches of votes from Democrat-heavy DeKalb County were released. Most uncounted votes remain in Democratic strongholds in the metro Atlanta area.

“When all the votes are counted we fully expect that Jon Ossoff will have won this election to represent Georgia in the United States Senate,” Ossoff campaign manager Ellen Foster said in a statement. “The outstanding vote is squarely in parts of the state where Jon’s performance has been dominant."
