Democrat Raphael Warnock officially won Senate elections in Georgia after his Republican challenger Herschel Walker (pictured) conceded defeat, according to CNN.

"There's no excuses in life and I'm not going to make any excuses now. We put up one heck of a fight," Warnock was quoted as saying, reportedly, with no mention of his opponent.

The victory gives the Democrats their 51st seat in the upper chamber, widening the party's razor-thin majority over the Republicans to 51-49.
