“If you’re sick and tired that even during a pandemic, they’re still trying to take away health care, and they refuse to pass the economic relief our families need, get ready. Early voting begins December 14th. Georgia, let’s put our shoes on, it’s time to vote.”
Atlanta, GA – With early in-person voting starting Monday, December 14, the Warnock for Georgia campaign released a new ad, “Get Ready to Vote,” urging Georgians to make a plan to vote by highlighting the importance of the election.
In the ad, Senior Pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church and Democratic nominee for U.S. Senate Reverend Raphael Warnock speaks about the call to service instilled in him by his father and the need to elect a senator who will protect health care and work to provide relief to working families. Warnock, the eleventh of twelve children, grew up in the Kayton Homes housing projects in Savannah and has fought for the dignity of working people and the need to expand access to quality, affordable health care. He has traveled across the state to hear from Georgians about the issues they care about and share his plan to be a senator that puts Georgia first.
The ad comes at the start of Warnock’s statewide “Get Ready to Vote” tour, where he will urge Georgians to vote early during events in Athens, Augusta, Savannah, Waycross, Albany, Warner Robins, Columbus and Atlanta.
Full transcript of “Get Ready to Vote” below:
[Warnock]: Every day at 6 a.m., my dad would come through my bedroom door, wake me up, and say, “Put your shoes on, son. Get ready.” If I asked him why, he’d say, “Because there’s something for you to do. I don’t know exactly what it is yet, but be ready.” I’m Raphael Warnock, and I’ve spent my life getting ready for this moment. So if you think no one in Washington is looking out for you, it’s time to put your shoes on and get ready. If you think too many senators are working for the wealthy and well connected and don’t respect the people who actually make our country work, get ready. If you’re sick and tired that even during a pandemic, they’re still trying to take away health care, and they refuse to pass the economic relief our families need, get ready. Early voting begins December 14th. Georgia, let’s put our shoes on, it’s time to vote. I’m Raphael Warnock, running for Senate, and I approve this message.
