Obama Boosts Warnock as Walker Courts Rural Voters in Final Push

Barack Obama returned to Atlanta Thursday night to help Democrat Raphael Warnock energize Black voters, while his Republican opponent, Herschel Walker, spent the day swooping through Georgia’s rural hamlets and smaller cities, putting on display how crucial turnout is for their Dec. 6 Senate runoff election. 

Obama, the first Black US president, appeared before more than 2,000 people packed into the city’s Pullman Yards complex and urged voters not to grow complacent during yet another runoff vote.
