|“I’m sick and tired of being represented by people who are actively working to take away my health care. Raphael Warnock fights for people.”|
Atlanta, GA – Today, the Warnock for Georgia campaign released a new ad, “Amy,” featuring Amy Swygert, a Georgia resident who was diagnosed with cancer at 22. In the ad, Amy speaks about her diagnosis and the stakes of the election for people like her with pre-existing conditions.
Throughout his campaign, Senior Pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church and Democratic nominee for U.S. Senate Reverend Raphael Warnock has called for an affordable, quality health care system that will work for all.
More than 1.8 million Georgians have pre-existing conditions and rely on protections in the Affordable Care Act for quality, affordable care. In the Senate, Loeffler has supported a lawsuit to overturn the ACA and independent fact checkers have said that her sham plan would make it harder for working families and people with pre-existing conditions to get the health care they need.

[Amy Swygert]: When you’re 22, you absolutely do not expect to be diagnosed with cancer. You know that it can always come back. And that’s why I’m supporting Raphael Warnock. Because he understands that health care is fundamental to people’s lives. I’m sick and tired of being represented by people who are actively working to take away my health care. Raphael Warnock fights for people. That’s what he cares about.
[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.###
