The not-so-Grand Old Party has been twisting and maneuvering every crooked way to win the next Senate race against the Atlanta-based Democratic candidate Reverend Raphael Warnock (D-GA). In spite of that, the first Black Georgia senator appears to be winning where it counts the most.
Dr. Warnock won the runoff election in 2021, and his campaign has already raised over $9.8 million in the last quarter of the year for a total of $23 million cash on hand. He has been running against Herschel Walker (R).
The senator’s campaign manager Quentin Fulks released a statement reassuring Georgians that their senator is fully behind them, The Gwinett Daily Post reported:
‘As Reverend Warnock continues to fight for hardworking Georgia families, the enthusiasm behind Reverend Warnock’s campaign continues to grow. After driving another record-breaking fundraising haul, our strong network of grassroots support is fired up to send Reverend Warnock back to the Senate to fight for Georgia.’
On the other hand, his opponent Walker released a statement to The Associated Press noting that he had only taken in $5.4 million within that same timeframe, October through December, from over 44,000 donors. However, Walker’s campaign did not reveal how much cash it had on hand.
Donald Trump endorsed Walker, the former football star. In addition, there were three others vying for the Republican primary candidate position. Those included:
‘[S]tate Agriculture Commissioner Gary Black, a Navy veteran; former bank executive Latham Saddler; and construction company owner Kelvin King.’
The Reverend’s church is the same one that was the spiritual home of Martin Luther King, Jr., according to the Ebenezer Baptist Church website.
