Georgia Senate Hopeful Slams Chuck Schumer for Stealing Focus from Peach State

You would think that these GA Democrats would want all the help that they could get, no?

The eyes of the American political world are about to shift from Delaware and DC to Dacula and Dekalb in the next few weeks, as the State of Georgia prepares for a high-stakes Senate runoff race.

There are two US Senate seats up for grabs in the race, thanks to two incredibly tight races on November 3rd that triggered an automatic runoff according to Peach State protocols.  That means that the four candidates involved will be up for election again come January 5th, and, given that these races will decide the majority in the Senate, the entire governmental machine is keeping a close eye on the dirty south.

But one of the Democrats vying for a seat in the Capitol isn’t exactly pleased with all this extra attention, and is lashing out at members of his own party on account of it.

Raphael Warnock, the Democratic candidate running in one of two high-profile U.S. Senate runoffs in Georgia, tried on Sunday to refocus the race as not about regaining control of the Senate, but as “about the people of Georgia.”

Appearing on CNN’s “State of the Union” on Sunday, Warnock, 51, sought to reframe to race as a referendum on the progressive agenda, with things like providing access to affordable healthcare.

“Chuck Schumer’s name is certainly not on the ballot,” Warnock said. “I will you what is on the ballot. Health care is on the ballot — access to affordable health care. We have got 500,000 Georgians in the Medicaid gap. We have got 1.8 million Georgians with preexisting conditions.”

Warnock has been one of the more controversial candidates in the race, having previously expressed less-than-hostile views toward Marxism and having worked with a church who once hosted Fidel Castro.
