Sen. Warnock Slams ‘Voter Suppression’ ahead of Record-high Voter Turnout

Sen. Raphael Warnock, D-Ga., told congregants at Ebenezer Baptist Church that they faced “severe” voter suppression at the polls just two days before Georgia saw record voter turnout and re-elected him as the Democratic nominee.

Warnock, a senior pastor at Martin Luther King Jr.’s former church in Atlanta, blasted Georgia’s Republican-passed Election Integrity Act from the pulpit, saying the law is intended to diminish the “power” of Black voters.

“Don’t you dare sleep on Tuesday if you didn’t early vote,” he said on May 22. “Your ballot is a blood-stained ballot. You ought to rise up and transform every opposition, every obstacle into an opportunity. You have power in your hands.”

“How do I know you have power? Because they passed one of the most severe voter suppression bills in Georgia in the whole country,” he continued. “Somebody must have seen your power and got so afraid that they said, ‘We gotta block them and stop them from coming into the house.’ Well, I’ve got news for them: There is nobody and nothing that can stop a child of God who knows that she is a child of God. If you don’t open the door, we’ll come through the window, and if we can’t come through the window, we’ll come through the roof. But some way and somehow and somewhere is our right to be inside of the house.”
