Duluth, October 18, 2022 – Senator Raphael Warnock made a campaign stop at “Walk the Polls” Rally at Shorty Howell Park in conjunction with the first day of voting for the mid-term election. With 21 days left before the actual Nov 8th voting day, Senator Warnock urged the public and his supporters to exercise their rights as American citizens to vote.
Senator Warnock made a few remarks to the reporters at the sideline of the rally. A reporter asked him about his thoughts on the issue of corporate investors in residential homes that had caused the inflated rise of housing prices in Georgia.
“I sit in the Banking and Housing committee, this is a very important issue. I've already introduced several pieces of legislations to help renters and first time home buyers to afford new homes. I am also planing to introduce more legislations to eradicate ‘bad actors' in the corporate investors when I get re-elected to the office,” said Senator Warnock.
He also add that some of his Senate colleagues are more interested in lobbying on behalf of corporate donors rather than helping the individuals. “I don't accept corporate donations,” said Senator Warnock.
“Small businesses are the heartbeat of the economy. The AAPI community punches way above its weight in the entrepreneurial space. And that's something I understand and I'm focused on doing whatever I can, whether it's strengthening the efforts of the small business administration or being creative about how we find ways for small businesses to get the capital they need in order to grow.”
A reporter asked his thoughts on the Georgia's Gubernatorial debate and race. “I know that Georgia should elect a Governor that is willing to expand Medicare to help the people,” answers the Senator.
Earlier in the day, Senator Warnock cast his ballot on the first day of voting. He later participated at a rally with Georgia State University students and spoke at The Black Man Lab in Atlanta to remind Georgians to vote early.
