There are only TWO competitive special elections for Congress this year and we have two incredible Democratic scientists running in both the Texas and New Mexico special elections. BUT: Early voting is already underway in Texas and about to begin in New Mexico. Please, rush in a donation toward our Special Election Fund to power Melanie Stansbury and Shawn Lassiter to VICTORY in these special elections.
Raphael Warnock symbolizes the American Dream: He grew up in public housing with two working parents and was only able to attend college due to Pell Grants and hard work.
After earning his PhD, Raphael was named the youngest pastor to serve at the pulpit of Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, the church of the late Martin Luther King Jr.
Throughout Raphael’s career, he has used the pulpit to organize locally and established interfaith meetings to address the climate crisis, drawing the attendance and attention of Vice President Al Gore.
While Raphael recognizes the urgency of addressing both the climate crisis and environmental racism, his opponent, Kelly Loeffler, has championed the denial of science. From the pandemic to health care to climate, Loeffler has applauded the Trump administration’s continued attacks on science, scientists, and the environment.
Raphael earned more votes in the primary runoff than Loeffler and polling shows him pulling ahead with the slightest of leads: Rush in a donation so we can elect a Climate Majority in the Senate!
