ATLANTA – Today, Newsweek reported that more than 90% of all of Raphael Warnock’s campaign contributions have come from outside of the state of Georgia.
“Georgia pastor and Senator Raphael Warnock leads his Republican opponent and former NFL player Herschel Walker by more than $100 million in campaign financing, and more than 90 percent of Warnock’s funding is from outside the state.”
“…OpenSecrets, a nonprofit organization tracking campaign financing, found that most of Warnock’s donations have come from New York. A little more than 8 percent—or $12 million—of his more than $145 million in campaign financing was sourced from Georgia, with more than $133 million coming from other states. Warnock’s campaign financing soared past that of Walker, who has raised more than $13 million but saw a higher percentage of financing from his home state. Nearly 40 percent of Walker’s campaign is funded by Georgia donations.”
“Given that Raphael Warnock has voted with Biden over 96% of the time, it’s no surprise that 90% of his funding comes from everywhere but Georgia,” said campaign spokesman Will Kiley. “Over the past two years, Warnock has only answered to California liberals and Joe Biden. It’s time we send someone to the Senate who will answer to the people of Georiga. Herschel Walker will represent Georgians, not Joe Biden.”
