In Georgia, early voting has begun in the Senate runoff between Democrat Raphael Warnock and Republican challenger Herschel Walker. Warnock received 37,000 more votes than Walker in the November 8 election but did not clear the 50% threshold to win the race outright. Former President Obama is scheduled to appear at a Warnock rally in Georgia on Thursday. While campaigning Saturday, Senator Warnock addressed reproductive rights, just three days after the Georgia Supreme Court reinstated the state’s abortion ban, one week after the ban had been overturned by a lower court.
Sen. Raphael Warnock: “As a man of faith, I have a profound reverence for life. And as a man of faith, I have a deep and abiding respect for choice. And I think that a patient’s room is too narrow and too cramped a space for a woman, her doctor and the United States government.”
