The fight for the Senate majority is in full swing as lawmakers seek to maintain or flip key seats in the 2022 midterm races.
One year after Senate Democrats won the traditionally red state of Georgia, lawmakers took to Twitter to ramp up what will likely be one of the most coveted races in determining who controls the upper chamber in just 11 months.
“I’m going to need all the help I can get in order to keep my seat at the table so I can continue to fight for things that matter in our country,” Sen. Raphael Warnock said in a video posted Wednesday.
“There are a lot of folks who are already counting me out,” he continued. “They think that because Mitch McConnell and Donald Trump are focused on this seat, trying to take it back for the Republicans, that I don’t stand a chance.”
Warnock is expected to face a tough battle in his upcoming fight for the Senate after his Jan. 6, 2021 victory over then-sitting Sen. Kelly Loeffler.
Democrats have already taken to social media to push their support of Warnock, as challengers like former football star Republican Herschel Walker and former Trump national security official Latham Saddler line up in an attempt to unseat him.
