Warnock vs. Walker, Round 2: Georgia Breaks Voting Records in Senate Runoff Election



Voters in Georgia cast their ballots Tuesday in the closely watched runoff election between Senator Raphael Warnock and Republican challenger Herschel Walker. A victory for Warnock would give Democrats a 51st seat in the Senate. The election has seen a record number of early votes, especially in communities of color, but Black Voters Matter co-founder and executive director Cliff Albright says that is “partially a function of the voter suppression” in the state. A new voting law passed by Georgia last year, known as SB 202, reduced the early voting period from three weeks to one and introduced a range of other restrictions.

  1. "we counted until we had enough"
    That "voter suppression law " wasn't so suppressing was it?

  2. "it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for Herschel to enter the United States Senate chamber. Jesus 2022

  3. The number of evil democrats shown to have requested and received manipulation of speech is mindboggling. With The Twitter Files, Part One: How and Why Twitter Blocked the Hunter Biden Laptop Story we are put on notice that the democrat party received cooperation on killing storylines in order to boost Biden’s chances of gaining the White House. Now-Twitter owner Elon Musk says, “Twitter was acting like an arm of the Democrat National Committee. It was absurd.” Then-Twitter silenced a notable newspaper as well as a very prominent White House spokesperson and anyone who tweeted on the subject. As we also know, then-Twitter also silenced the President, though on a narrative thread separate from the Hunter Biden laptop story.

    Every detail in this initial Twitter file begs further investigation. It’s as though we’ve caught a glimpse of a small bit of one web in a massive colony of spiders. Now we just learn Elon fired the Twitter attorney who held back emails that confirm the FBI was working with Twitter to suppress the free speech of anyone that opposed Joe Biden. The same attorney who previously worked at the FBI and lead the Russia scam against Trump. Surprise, surprise!!!

    Through this release of information, actor James Woods found out he was specifically targeted and has threatened to file a lawsuit, perhaps even head up a class-action suit, against the requestors. Conservatives and others have experienced temporary suspensions, threats if they do not themselves delete tweets that Twitter staff could have easily deleted, demonetization, deplatforming, shadow-banning, and canceled followers!!!

  4. CONGRATULATIONS AND PRAYERS 🙏💖💖💖🙏🙏 BY RAVINDER TALWAR JALANDHAR CITY PUNJAB INDIA

  5. Y E S! Walker IS AN INSULT! WTH kind of Republican Party do we have! Where are their values?

  9. All of us aren't insulted about Walker only. Some of us are insulted by Warnock as well. Neither candidate is going to bring the Black Community Tangibles.

  16. Well here’s a crazy thought, if governing bodies or actually seem to be promoting policies that are Contra logic and are designed to be just selfish self-indulgent mountains of power for themselves why would a society allow this body to exist it’s totally counterproductive it’s just very weird I don’t care how much money a person has if this person is saying that they want to spend their fortune poisoning a hold of society with the exception of those that are countering to him or her I would think that logic would dictate that this person should not be in any sort of power whatsoever and yet this is how our society has this existed for decades and decades, It boggles the mind!

  17. 2 million early voters?
    My god, no need to be in person and verify who u are.
    Whoever says there's no cheating has no right and is not a good honest member of society.

  18. what about Warnock running over that lady!!!!! yawl corny man both of them pulling up dirt and no policies are online for me to see are you kidding me this trash!!!!! This is a mockery all together they only talk trash about each other no policies you all would rather hear a beautiful liar than a slow talking man. And this is why I am glad I do not represent this country in uniform anymore

  19. It a vote to legally pull the arms and legs off a baby and vacuum out his her brains.

  20. Late Night TV has been hysterical. SNL would rock for 6 years with Herschel. But I voted for Warnock today, regardless of great laughs offefed to all. I felt like I had a NATIONAL DUTY to reject Trump's Walker and Vote for Rev. Warnock.

  21. Imagine if Walker wins. He’ll vote against women and gays.

    Oh, the irony. 🤦‍♂️

  22. Said the stupid fat black guy was worried about who was disenfranchised. because they can’t find one person that was. Because they’re not really worried about disenfranchised voters. They’re worried they won’t be able to steal elections.And screw the country over. That’s their entire agenda.

  23. The current wife has been rather low key during this election.
    Mrs. Julie Blanchard Walker's absence from the campaign speaks volumes.
