Raphael Warnock Tells Georgia Voters: ‘We Can Do Better’ Than Kelly Loeffler in Closing Pitch
Georgia Democratic Senate candidate Reverend Raphael Warnock on Tuesday released a new campaign ad in which he personally excoriates incumbent Republican Kelly Loeffler for misusing her position in power to jack up her enormous personal wealth.
“Here’s the choice, Georgia,” Warnock begins. Kelly Loeffler spends tens of millions of dollars to scare you. She’s attacked my church, attacked my faith. She’s even attacked my family. She’s trying to make you afraid of me because she’s afraid of you. Afraid that you understand how she’s used her position in the Senate to enrich herself and others like her. Afraid that you’ll realize that we can do better.”
Warnock, a clergyman at Atlanta’s historic Ebenezer Baptist Church, told Peach State voters that his prime directive is to make their lives better.
“I’m Raphael Warnock, and if you elect me to the Senate, I’ll wake up every day guided by the values of hard work and passion instilled in me by my parents and inspired by the words of Dr. King who said that ‘life’s most persistent and urgent question is what are you doing for others?’ Even in these crazy times, I still think it’s possible to work together to improve the lives of Georgians. All Georgians,” he said. “That’s exactly what I’ll do in Washington. I approve this message and humbly ask for your vote.”
The unelected Loeffler is one of the wealthiest members of Congress and personally profited off of stock sales she made while simultaneously hiding the truth about the COVID-19 pandemic from the public.
Georgia’s other GOP Senator, David Perdue – who like Loeffler is a millionaire many times over – was also busted for dumping his corporate shares as he stood silently stood by during the early days of the coronavirus crisis.
Perdue is facing a challenge from Democrat Jon Ossoff, a rising star on the left.
The outcomes of the January 5 runoff races will determine which political party will control the Senate for the next two years.
The latest polls show Ossoff and Warnock with slight leads. And based on the enormous number of early votes that have been cast, the young Democratic hopefuls could actually have the momentum to win.
