As Senator Reverend Raphael Warnock welcomes President Joe Biden to his church this Sunday he says he will continue to push and challenge the Administration when it makes sense. Warnock's defeat of Republican Herschel Walker last month secured Democrat control of the U.S. Senate.
President Biden is to deliver a tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on what would have been the slain Civil Rights leader's 94th birthday. The U.S. President's visit to Ebenezer Baptist Church comes on the eve of the King Holiday, Monday January 16, 2023. King was a former pastor of the church. Warnock is now the pastor.
We sat down with Senator Warnock in his Washington D.C. office.
He was asked how committed he is to holding the Administration accountable for promises made to the people of Georgia during and after the 2020 election. "I'll continue to stand up for the people of Georgia. I work for the people of Georgia," says Warnock. He adds, "I will work with whomever I can work with to get good things done for the State of Georgia."
Warnock was also asked about his plan to protect voting rights in Georgia within the first 100 days, his plan to help rural Georgia, about police accountability and more.
