Anchor, 11Alive: “Another person trying to dodge the raindrops while stumping for votes was Senator Warnock. He took time today to do a little door knocking in Decatur.”
Reverend Warnock hosted a canvass launch in Marietta.
- The final week of early voting begins Monday but Senator Reverend Raphael Warnock (D-GA) wasted no time trying to get more souls to the polls Sunday. With nearly 1.5 million Georgians having voted early as of Sunday, according to the Secretary of State’s Office, there are still many more voters to speak with before Election Day on November 8.
- DeKalb County has seen 122,682 early ballots cast thus far, and despite polls favoring Warnock by a few points in some cases and by a single point in others, his campaign hit a few targeted areas of the county in search of more support.
- The first stop of the day was at The dReam Center Church of Atlanta in Decatur, where he was invited to speak to congregants about voting early. “Don’t just pray with your lips, part with your legs,” Warnock said to a crowd of nearly 100 congregants about the need to vote before Election Day. He added that “A vote is a lot like a prayer,” a common phrase he has used this election season.
- The next stop of the day took Warnock to a small house on Ridgeland Drive, not far from The dReam Center Church. There, a local woman, who did not want to give her name, was hosting a canvassing event. Warnock got out a black SUV and made his way up her driveway to meet the nearly two-dozen people waiting to greet him.
- “Are ya’ll ready to win this election?,” he asked the canvassers. “There’s excitement in the air and a lot of energy on the ground.”
- The campaign was scheduled to be in Cobb County later in the afternoon for another canvassing event. More than 114,000 Georgians have voted early in Cobb County, according to data from the Secretary of State’s Office.
