Senator Raphael Warnock is Winning with a Bipartisanship Strategy
Even when asked about the accomplishments of the Democratic part, Raphael Warnock didn't offer any cheerleading...
Georgia Democrats have predicted dire outcomes if Raphael Warnock loses to Herschel Walker in the state’s Senate race. Nan Orrock said, “They’re going to take away our democratic rights one after another. Failure is not an option.”
Raphael Warnock is aiming to promote himself as an individual willing to do whatever it takes to help Georgia. He said, “I work with anybody to get something good done for the people of Georgia.” With the overall Democratic consensus faltering, Raphael Warnock is aware that he will require more nuance in his arguments. This is especially true for the economy considering it is one of the most important issues to would-be voters come November.
The Republicans on the other hand are seeing an opportunity in Georgia. Herschel Walker has been shaping up an effort to contest the Senate seat against his self-deemed “Biden-Warnock Agenda.” Gail Gitcho, the senior adviser for Herschel Walker said, “This is still a national race. The burden is on Raphael Warnock and the extremely close ties he has to Joe Biden in this environment. Herschel has put him on the defensive.”
Taking advantage of the strategy of playing up bipartisanship being demonstrated by Raphael Warnock is seen as his only chance at winning. In his previous election victory, Raphael Warnock witnessed the Democrats unite and become enthusiastic whereas the Republicans were not. This year is different because Democrats cannot count on their criticisms of Trump to push them to win.
“I’m focused on the job I’m doing. When that means standing with this person or that person, it’s based on what it does for Georgia.”
Raphael Warnock said when asked about Biden’s approval ratings.
Surprisingly, even on the wins of the Democratic party Raphael Warnock has avoided cheering for them.
