Warnock’s feedback Sunday echoed a bigger theme in his continued marketing campaign in opposition to appointed GOP Sen. Kelly Loeffler. As he and fellow Democrat Jon Ossoff — who’s in his own runoff with Sen. David Perdue — jostle for seats within the higher chamber, both candidates are redirecting focus from the nationwide stage to Georgia voters and their well being care.
The pair of January runoff elections will decide management of the Senate. If Warnock and Ossoff come out on top, Democrats have a 50-50 Senate with Vice President-elect Kamala Harris breaking ties. Should they lose, Democrats are relegated once once more to the minority, with a Republican Senate standing in the best way of President-elect Joe Biden’s formidable agenda.
Warnock expressed optimism Sunday at his odds of profitable the race.
“I finished first, handily, far ahead of a candidate who is the wealthiest member of Congress, who poured millions of dollars into this race. And we finished in a strong position,” Warnock said.
“There is no question in my mind that, as Georgians hear about my commitment to access to affordable health care, the dignity of work, the work I have been doing for years, standing up for ordinary people, we will prevail come Jan. 5.”
