Atlanta, GA – On Wednesday, Georgians and community leaders showed their support for Reverend Warnock as he continued his “Working for Georgia” bus tour with campaign stops in Rome and Cobb County where he discussed his efforts to protect Georgia jobs and lower costs for Georgia families across the state.

In the Senate, Reverend Warnock fought to pass critical legislation to address Georgians’ costs, supply chain issues, and create and protect Georgia jobs. Reverend Warnock recently fought to pass the Inflation Reduction Act, including his provisions to cap the cost of insulin at $35 per month for Georgians on Medicare and cap out-of-pocket prescription drug costs for seniors. He also fought to pass the jobs and competition bill, which was recently signed into law and will invest in domestic manufacturing, protect Georgia jobs, and reduce reliance on foreign nations like China.

Hear what community leaders are saying about Reverend Warnock’s work for to protect and grow Georgia jobs and lower costs

ROME

Reverend Warnock kicked off the day with a rally in Rome.

Sundai Stevenson, Mayor of Rome: “[Warnock] talked to us about what we needed here in Rome and Floyd County. We told him we needed good paying jobs. We needed money to help with the old Northwest Georgia Regional Hospital site… He listened, he heard us, and after a year-long push led by him, bipartisan legislation was signed into law. This law has saved approximately 2,700 jobs at the Kia plant in West Point. It spurred Georgia solar growth, helping companies like Q-Cells in Dalton. He cares about us, he’s compassionate.”

COBB COUNTY

Reverend Warnock ended the day with a rally in Cobb County.

Jacquelyn Bettadapur, Cobb County Democrats Chair: “Senator Warnock has delivered on the kitchen table issues that impact families in Georgia. He has worked to protect and grow Georgia jobs. He has proposed and passed legislation to lower prescription drug costs and cap the cost of insulin. He has been leading the fight to provide relief at the pump by suspending the federal gas tax. Senator Warnock has delivered for Georgia and that is why we’re going to deliver him back to the US Senate.”

Chinita Allen, President of Cobb County Democratic Women: “After a year-long push, our Reverend Warnock helped to create the jobs and competition bill that was signed into law. This law will boost manufacturing jobs, strengthen our supply line, and reduce reliance on foreign nations…he’s for every Georgian. We can trust him to do what he says he’s going to do and not hide from his promises.”
