- So I know Stacey Abrams said that voter turnout does not dispel voter suppression. With that being said, there's a lot of different things happening in [? Cobb ?] county and predominantly Black counties that are haphazard. Are you concerned about that during the ballot counts?

RAPHAEL WARNOCK: Long before I ran for office, I was involved with voter mobilization and voter protection, trying to get voters engaged and to register new voters. So I'm always concerned about these things. And so we'll keep our eye on it. And we've got people who do that work.

I think the issue around election protection is important. And so I want to say to folks who are voting today if you run into a problem, reach out to the Voter Protection Hotline or contact us on my website, Warnock.voting. And we'll be as helpful to you as we can.
