“Chuck Schumer made it very clear that if we take Georgia, he said, we will change America, so it’s no wonder that liberals are supporting the most radically liberal candidate in the country for Senate today in Raphael Warnock,” said Sen. Kelly Loeffler on “The Ingraham Angle” Monday.
Loeffler cited Castro’s 1995 visit to the Abyssinian Baptist Church in Harlem, where Warnock was serving as a youth pastor.
“Warnock has a long history of anti-Israel extremism. He defended Jeremiah Wright’s anti-Semitic comments. He embraced the anti-Zionist BLM organization. And he thinks Israel is an “oppressive regime” for fighting back against terrorism,” said Loeffler in a tweet recently.

Warnock told MSNBC that he has never defended anti-Semitism.
On “The Ingraham Angle,” Loeffler said she would “welcome” another debate with Warnock, after the host reported Warnock would welcome as many as three such forums.
“We had a debate,” she said. “I had the opportunity in that debate to show how radical his agenda is, and we are just getting started. So I welcome that opportunity to also show what I’ve done for Georgians since getting into the Senate in January.”
“I’ve hit the ground running, delivered for Georgians during the pandemic to bring relief, and also holding people accountable. Like Raphael Warnock for their comments supporting folks like Fidel Castro, inviting them into his church [while] at the same time criticizing police officers,” Loeffler added.
“Georgians need to know who he is and I welcome the chance to debate him as many times as he wants.”
“We are going to hold the line in Georgia because they are a red state. We are going to make sure we get everyone out to vote and we are not going to let California and New York buy this election.”
