Received this e-mail today from U.S. Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin (D. IL) in support of Rev. Raphael Warnock’s (D. GA) U.S. Senate campaign:
This is big: Rev. Raphael Warnock just announced that he’s running for U.S. Senate in Georgia. Rev. Warnock is a pastor, community leader, and social justice advocate — and he’s already earned the endorsement of former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams.
We can flip the Senate, but we have to win races like this one in Georgia. We need to do everything in our power to support candidates like Rev. Warnock and get this done.
Election forecasters are already predicting that this Senate race in Georgia will be one of the closest races of the election. And the experts agree that Democrats can win — but the GOP isn’t going down without a fight.
Rev. Warnock’s Republican opponent in Georgia describes herself as “pro-Trump and pro-wall.” We don’t need another puppet for the Trump-GOP agenda in the Senate — we need a strong, moral leader like Rev. Warnock fighting for our future.
This race could determine control of the Senate. That’s why I’m asking you to join me today in showing your early support for Rev. Warnock’s campaign.
