|Sam: “More than ever before, we need leaders like Raphael Warnock who will work hard to keep the economy going.”|
Atlanta, GA – Today, Senior Pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church and Democratic U.S. Senate nominee Reverend Raphael Warnock released a new ad, “Sam” featuring Sam Shariff, a small business owner from Stone Mountain, GA affected by the COVID-19 crisis.
“Sam” was released just days after an agreement was reached in Congress to provide additional COVID-19 relief, including support for small businesses, without any involvement from unelected Senator Kelly Loeffler who has spent her time on the campaign trail during on-going relief negotiations in Washington. Loeffler has called unemployment relief “counterproductive,” and her inaction on COVID-19 relief for nearly nine months has cost struggling Georgians dearly.

[Shariff]: I came to America about 20 years back. We did well –– thank God –– we did very well. But this year was different and difficult.
[Shariff]: More than ever before, we need leaders like Raphael Warnock who will work hard to keep the economy going. We need him as our Senator.
[Shariff]: Raphael Warnock will stand for me because he is one of us. I trust Raphael Warnock 100 percent. This is our chance to let our voice be heard.
[Warnock]: I’m Raphael Warnock, and I approve this message.
About Reverend WarnockReverend 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.###
