Warnock celebrates Senate victory: Georgia voters ‘heard a very clear contrast’
Democrat Raphael Warnock celebrated his victory Wednesday morning in his special Senate runoff election against Georgia Republican Sen. Kelly Loeffler.
“I can’t tell you how honored I am that the people of my home state where I was born and raised and educated at Morehouse College have decided to send me to the United States Senate to represent their concerns at this defining moment in American history, [at] a time when people are suffering in so many ways,” Warnock said in an interview on NBC’s “TODAY” show.
Warnock said that the people of Georgia heard a “very clear contrast” in the race.
“I talked about how I intend to represent them,” he said, “And my opponent was focused on how she would represent her own interests. And I think the folks heard that loud and clear.
Warnock noted that people have been waiting for economic relief for months, and Congress was unable to pass $2,000 direct checks in the latest aid package.
Addressing the country’s divisiveness, Warnock, a reverend, said that he has experience bringing people together across racial and religious lines on a range of issues such as voting rights and criminal justice reform.
