Washington, D.C.—Following news of a special election runoff in Georgia between Raphael Warnock and Kelly Loeffler for a seat in the U.S. Senate, People For the American Way President Ben Jealous released the following statement:
“Tonight, Democrat Raphael Warnock advanced his campaign for a U.S. Senate seat in Georgia’s crowded special election. People For the American Way continues to support Warnock, whose election to the Senate would be a historic achievement in Georgia. Warnock understands the needs of working families in the state, and is rightly focused on their futures. In the runoff, Georgians have another opportunity to vote for progressive change in their state, and People For will continue to support Warnock every step of the way.”
