Georgia Sen. Raphael Warnock’s (D) latest ad has the help of none other than former first lady Michelle Obama. Warnock is currently facing GOP candidate Herschel Walker in a runoff election on Dec. 6.
In two separate recorded messages, one that has been sent out for early voting, and one that is expected to be released on Dec. 6, Warnock starts the call by saying that there is a” special message” for those on the line. Obama’s voice is then heard on the line as she urges Georgias to head to the state’s election centers to cast their vote.
In the message, Michelle Obama urges voters to go out and vote, because as she says those on the other side are hoping to see Democrats stay in their homes and not vote. As she notes, this is why it is important for them to go out to vote one more time as the race is expected to be particularly close.
The message which is to be released on Dec. 6 will similarly feature Obama who will be reminding voters that the polls are going to remain open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
This phone campaign is the latest campaign trick used by Warnock to gain the attention of voters and remind them to vote. Previously he has also had the endorsement of former President Obama, who is heading to Georgia to campaign alongside Warnock this week.
On the other side Walker has the support of newly reelected Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp (R) and former President Trump. However, it is unclear whether Trump will return to Georgia to campaign alongside Walker again.
