Atlanta, GA — Georgia press this week are already calling out Kelly Loeffler’s desperate and false claims against Reverend Raphael Warnock, after Loeffler began her runoff campaign by reverting to the lowest of the low of attacks to distract from her failure to serve Georgians in the Senate.
As “Loeffler and her supporters have leveled increasingly scathing attacks ahead of Jan. 5 runoffs likely to decide control of the U.S. Senate,” media are calling it like they see it, describing the attacks as a “smear campaign” and “mostly-false” with “no evidence” to back them up.
“While Reverend Warnock continues to make this race about the issues important to Georgians and how he’ll work for them in the Senate, Kelly Loeffler launched her runoff campaign racing to the bottom,” said Terrence Clark, communications director for Reverend Raphael Warnock. “It took no time for the media to call out these lowest of the low attacks as misleadings, and we have no doubt Georgians will reach the same conclusion and reject this divisive form of politics in January.”

Warnock also released two new ads this week, one holding Loeffler accountable for profiting off of the pandemic while downplaying the risk to Georgians, and a second about her attempts to distract voters with the lowest of low attacks. Watch “Sworn” and “Commonsense.”
About Reverend Warnock
Reverend Raphael Warnock grew up in Kayton Homes public housing in Savannah. Fifteen years ago, he was chosen to serve as Senior Pastor at Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, the former pulpit of Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. He is only the fifth Senior Pastor in the history of the church and the youngest pastor ever selected to serve in that position. Reverend Warnock believes his service does not stop at the church door, and has been an advocate to expand health care coverage and to ensure hardworking Georgians can make a living wage. As Senator, Reverend Warnock will bring to Washington the concerns of struggling Georgia families who wonder why no one is looking out for them, and focus on fighting for quality, affordable health care, for the dignity of working people who are paid too little as our government works more for Wall Street, and to make sure every voice is heard.
