Loeffler unleashes onslaught against Warnock in Georgia race for Senate control [View all]

Her campaign aired an ad this week questioning whether "this" America -- showing a classroom of young students saying the pledge of allegiance -- will still be America "if the radical left controls the Senate." The ad then shows images of mobs, flashes signs saying "defund the police" and plasters a quote from a 2015 sermon Warnock gave after a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri, killed Michael Brown, in which he said some officers have a "gangster and thug mentality."

Another Loeffler campaign ad attacks Warnock for honoring pastor Jeremiah Wright in 2008, even though five years earlier Wright gave a now infamous sermon defined by three words -- "God damn America." The attack is a callback to the 2008 presidential campaign, when then-Democratic candidate Barack Obama gave a pivotal speech on race relations in America after being criticized for his association with Wright.

Warnock has said that Loeffler wants to divide Georgia, and distract from her opposition to the Affordable Care Act and the health care insurance it provides millions of people in the middle of a pandemic.

"If you don't really have an agenda for working families, I guess you have to distract working families," said Warnock in Atlanta on Thursday. "I intend to stay focused on making sure that every Georgian has access to affordable health care, that workers share in some of the profits that they're creating and that they are able to retire with dignity."
