Received this e-mail today from U.S. Senator Jeff Merkley (D. OR) in support of Rev. Raphael Warnock’s (D. GA) U.S. Senate campaign:
America is hurting.
Tens of thousands of Americans are gathering every day in righteous protest against violence and racism.
Instead of seeking reconciliation and justice, the president tries only to inflame and incite.
America cries out for leaders who will demand racial justice and can boldly lead with a clear vision.
Rev. Raphael Warnock is a perfect leader for this moment.
The senior pastor at Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, he preaches from the same progressive pulpit as Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. did.
And he's running for the U.S. Senate from Georgia.
Rev. Warnock has committed his whole life as a peaceful warrior for equality, opportunity, justice, dignity, hope, and community. What better person to help lead America, especially right now?
