Atlanta, GA – On Monday, Senior Pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church and U.S. Senate candidate Reverend Raphael Warnock thanked supporters and urged Georgians to keep up the momentum as he brought his “Rev Up the Vote” GOTV tour to a close.
“The energy in communities across Georgia during our statewide tour leading up to Election Day has been electric,” said Warnock. “I am deeply grateful for the support Georgians have shown our campaign, and I could not be prouder that Georgia is at the center of a New South that stands for the dignity of all people. From conversations with Georgians from Statesboro to Stockbridge and Atlanta to Americus, I am confident that the people of this state know what is at stake at this election. Health care, justice, and equality are on the ballot, and Georgians are ready for change. Despite the long lines, attacks on voting rights, and even a hurricane, Georgians are turning out in numbers we have never seen before. The tide is rising, the wind is at our back and we are ready to make our voices heard.”
Since launching his campaign, Warnock has made dozens of stops across Georgia, including events in Atlanta, Albany, Athens, Americus, Augusta, Brunswick, Camilla, Carrollton, Columbus, Cuthbert, Dalton, Douglasville, Dublin, Fayetteville, Fort Valley, Jonesboro, LaGrange, Lawrenceville, Lithonia, Macon, Marietta, Norcross, Pooler, Powder Springs, Rome, Savannah, Statesboro, Stockbridge, Suwanee, Thomasville, Toccoa, Valdosta, and Union City.
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.
