Reverend Warnock: Washington Can Learn a Lot from People Across Georgia
Atlanta, GA – Today, the Warnock for Georgia campaign released a series of new ads capturing the momentum behind Senior Pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church and Democratic nominee for U.S. Senate Reverend Raphael Warnock, with voters across the state speaking to his focus on ordinary people and commitment to putting Georgia first.
In “Learn A Lot,” Warnock reflects on the concerns he’s heard from Georgia voters across the state who are tired of “the politics division” and eager for a Senator who will look out for them. In Warnock’s own words, “Washington can learn a lot from People across Georgia.
Watch “Learn A Lot”
[Warnock]: It’s really important to me to talk to people all across the state. And when I get to some of these towns they’re surprised that I’m there, and quite frankly, I’m surprised that they’re surprised. We can do something extraordinary together. All across Georgia there are people who are concerned about where we are in this moment. Too often we’re seeing the politics of division, whereas on the ground, people are just trying to make their lives work. We’ve got to get our jobs back. The truth is Washington can learn a lot from people across Georgia. When I’m elected to the United States Senate, I plan to continue to get out, talk to the people, because I’m afraid that if I only talk to politicians, I might accidentally become one. And I have no intentions of becoming a politician. I want to be a public servant. I’m Raphael Warnock, and I approve this message.
The campaign is also running spots featuring voters in “Augusta,” “Warner Robins,” “Albany and Columbus” and “Savannah,” speaking to why Reverend Warnock is their choice for United States Senator.

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.
