Atlanta, GA – Today, after news that a GOP senator pressured the Georgia Secretary of State’s office to ignore legally cast ballots from the November election, Senior Pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church and Democratic nominee for U.S. Senate issued the following statement:
@ReverendWarnock: Every legally cast ballot must be counted. We should all agree on that and stand up to defend our democracy. @KLoeffler join me in condemning these threats to a fair election and defending Georgians’ right to vote.
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.
