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.
Warnock, a clergyman at Atlanta’s historic Ebenezer Baptist Church, told Peach State voters that his prime directive is to make their lives better.
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.
