US Midterm Elections: ‘We Shouldn’t Go Back 60 Years!’

first Amendment:

Hours before the midterm elections, Democrats and Republicans threw their last forces into battle. Especially in those states where elections are very close, like Georgia. In this Southern state, the incumbent Democratic senator, African-American pastor Raphael Warnock, is facing another black candidate, the highly controversial Herschel Walker, a former football star endorsed by Donald Trump.

Democrat Raphael Warnock is also the senior pastor of one of America’s most famous churches: Martin Luther King’s Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta.

And it was in the mecca of civil rights that Senator-turned-candidate Warnock celebrated a mass Sunday with strong political ramifications. “My father couldn’t even sit on a bus seat in uniform. And now I have a seat in the Senate! We’re moving. We turned our clocks back an hour last night.” [por el cambio de hora en EEUU], But we will not allow anyone to go back 60 years. Ask everyone to vote. Tell them that a vote is a prayer for the world we want for ourselves and our children.”

The congregation, found after Pastor Warnock’s sermon, are more aware of the importance of the November 8th election. This is Charles’ case. “Our rights, our freedom, our humanity. Everything is at stake. Everything.” “If we can keep a Democratic majority in Congress, then Democratic policies will be carried forward,” Grace said.

A few hours before the election, the tension is clearly visible. So Raphael Warnock wanted to reassure. “I think everything will be fine,” he believes.

In the latest polls, he’s tied with Herschel Walker, so every vote counts. Democratic activists are determined to mobilize the last opposing voters and are doing the Johns Creek-like legwork.

“Yesterday I was going door to door and some people thought they could vote today. I had to explain to them that the vote was on Tuesday. I also had to tell them that the only way to vote now was to go to their polling place Is.” Personally and let them know so the awareness and education of our voters is very important”, a Democratic extremist tells RFI.

With polling just hours away, many Americans say they can’t wait for the fierce election campaign to end.
