AFSCME’s Saunders: With Sen. Warnock in Congress, ‘the future for working Georgians is bright’

AFSCME President Lee Saunders released the following statement after Sen. Raphael Warnock won the Georgia Senate runoff:

“With Senator Warnock’s victory, we can add an exclamation point to the end of a midterm cycle that was a massive win for working people and a rebuke of political extremism. Warnock’s exemplary character and commitment to improving the lives of everyday families set him apart as the clear choice for Georgia voters. We know he will continue to be a force for justice and equity in the Senate, fighting to protect and expand workers’ rights and civil rights. Voters know this, too, which is why they came out in record numbers to reelect him. Thanks to this historic turnout, the future for working Georgians is bright.”
