Ahead of the Georgia runoff elections, Democratic Senate candidate Rev. Raphael Warnock and actress Kerry Washington discussed what is at stake in the January 5th election as part of Rolling Stone’s Georgia Talks series.
“We say all the time that elections have consequences. I have to say that after we witnessed 325,000 American deaths [due to Covid-19], to say that elections have consequences is a gross understatement. Elections are a matter of life and death,” Warnock said. “Tragically, we are seeing in real-time the difference that public policy makes, and the difference it makes when you have people in office who actually care about people, and who place their concerns first. But I am very inspired and encouraged by what we’re seeing on the ground here in Georgia.”
