Warnock Silent on Braves Name Change, Did Nothing to Stop MLB All-Star Game Boycott

Tuesday, September 27th, 2022

ATLANTA – Today, Team Herschel released the following statement as Raphael Warnock remains silent on the potential Braves name change and to remind Georgians that Warnock failed to fight to keep the MLB All-Star Game in Atlanta.

Yesterday, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said the White House was open to discussing changing the name of the reigning World Series Champion Atlanta Braves.

Last year, Raphael Warnock stood by as liberal groups around the country successfully bullied Major League Baseball into moving the 2021 All-Star Game out of Georgia. The All-Star Game moving from Atlanta cost Georgia approximately $100 million in revenue.

“The reigning and future World Series Champion Atlanta Braves are loved by fans across Georgia and across the country. Millions grew up watching the Braves on TV as America’s Team,” said campaign spokesman Will Kiley. “Suggesting the Braves change their name is just as ridiculous as a sitting U.S. Senator not standing up for his state’s businesses and economy in the face of a woke mob. Raphael Warnock failed the people of Georgia last year by not fighting to keep the All-Star Game in Atlanta, and it looks like he is going to sit by and let yet another made-up controversy distract from the real problems of inflation, grocery prices, rising crime, and an open border. Just another day in the life of Georgia’s Do Nothing Senator.”
