Let’s WarNOCK
Out Extremism


Why is there a runoff election in Georgia?

Under Georgia election law, if a race isn’t won by 50% or more of the vote, a runoff must be held between the top two candidates. There were three candidates in the Georgia Senate race, and while Sen. Raphael Warnock is ahead in the vote count, no candidate received 50%, so two will meet again in the runoff on Tuesday, Dec. 6, with early voting beginning Monday, Nov. 28.


Why is it important for us to help Senator Raphael Warnock win?

Suburban women turned out big time in the midterm elections and helped keep right-wing extremists out of important seats in the Senate. We helped secure 50 Senate seats for the Dems, even flipping one important seat in PA. So, can we relax about Georgia because keeping a 50-50 Senate split good enough? No, of course not! We don’t settle!

There are many reasons why gaining a 51-49 majority is really important, so we should all work hard to help Sen. Warnock get re-elected. Here’s why:

  • A 51-49 majority could confirm hundreds of federal court judges who will protect reproductive freedom, voting rights, and real gun safety laws. 
  • Democrats would be less reliant on Joe Manchin (WV) and Kyrsten Sinema (AZ) to advance bills and nominations. 
  • It will help in 2024 when there will be 33 Senate seats up for election, some in hotly contested states. It’s important to gain every seat possible now to help soften any losses in 2024.  

What are Senator Warnock’s successes so far?

Senator Warnock is also the senior pastor at Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, an honor he shares with the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Since taking office, Senator Warnock has secured more than $54.8 billion in federal investments for Georgia, resolved more than 16,500 cases for constituents, and responded to 516,000+ letters. He is listening to Georgians and delivering results. 

He supported major pieces of legislation including the Women’s Health Protection Act, the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act, the American Rescue Plan, and the Inflation Reduction Act, showing his support for women’s reproductive rights, gun reform, and economic relief. He also supported legislation to protect voting rights, support our military veterans, offer climate change solutions, and increase the federal minimum wage. He supports and protects the rights of all Americans.  

What is so extreme about Herschel Walker?

Mr. Walker does not have previous political experience. He is known for his college and professional career in football. He has a controversial personal history with allegations of domestic violence, physical threats, and violent outbursts and tendencies. 

He does not support a woman’s right to choose and has said that he would support a full ban on abortion with no exceptions for rape or incest, or to save the life of the mother. He does not support common sense gun safety laws, in fact, he has the extreme view that we should loosen restrictions on carrying weapons. He has also denied the results of the 2020 Presidential election. 

His campaign has been championed by Donald Trump, Lindsey Graham, Mitch McConnell, and other Republican leaders. It is clear he would support their extreme agenda if he is elected.
