|“This race for Senate is about who you think best represents you. If you’re looking for a billionaire, I’m not your guy. But if you want someone who’s been through some of the same challenges as you, I’m Raphael Warnock and it would be my honor to serve you.”|
Atlanta, GA – Today, Senior Pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church and Democratic nominee for U.S. Senate Reverend Raphael Warnock released his second ad of the runoff, “Best Represents You.” The ad highlights Warnock’s childhood as the second youngest of twelve children growing up in the housing projects Savannah, his journey to become the senior pastor of the spiritual home of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and his life-long commitment to the working people of Georgia.

During his campaign for Senate, he has traveled to cities across Georgia to share his vision for an economy and a health care system that will work for all.

[Warnock Voiceover]: People like me aren’t supposed to run for office.
I grew up in the housing projects of Savannah.
My mom is from Waycross, she spent her summers picking cotton and tobacco.
Dad was a veteran, a small businessman and a preacher.
They taught me the value of hard work.
I was first in our family to graduate from a four year college, earned a PhD, and was called to Martin Luther King Jr.’s pulpit as Senior Pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church.
I’ve always thought my impact doesn’t stop at the church door, that’s where it starts.
Fighting for affordable health care, fair wages, to protect the dignity of work.
This race for Senate is about who you think best represents you. If you’re looking for a billionaire, I’m not your guy. But if you want someone who’s been through some of the same challenges as you, I’m Raphael Warnock and it would be my honor to serve you.
That’s why I approve this message.
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.
