This Pastor May Run for the Senate – and Help Turn Georgia Blueposted on August 11, 2015
The Huffington Post’s Samantha Lachman reports that the Rev. Raphael Warnock, pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, is considering running for a Georgia Senate seat. Warnock has a record of “advocating for voting rights, health care access, gun control and income inequality, among other issues,” Lachman writes. If he won, Warnock would be the “first African-American to do so statewide,” and the first Democrat to win a Senate seat in Georgia since 2002.
