Early Voting Breaks Records Ahead of Georgia’s Crucial Senate Runoff

HeadlineDec 05, 2022

In Georgia, voters will head to the polls Tuesday in the closely watched runoff between Senator Raphael Warnock and Republican challenger Herschel Walker. A record 1.85 million Georgians cast early votes, with over 350,000 people voting on Friday alone, setting a new single-day state record. This is Senator Warnock speaking to voters at a church in Athens, Georgia, Sunday.

Sen. Raphael Warnock: “The people of Georgia need a true champion. Women need a champion. Workers need a champion. Our kids need a champion. The planet needs a champion. We’re on a different field tonight.”

Meanwhile, last week, a third former partner accused Herschel Walker of violently attacking her.
