Alpha Phi Alpha’s Senator Raphael Warnock Wins Georgia Runoff

Democrat Sen. Raphael Warnock, a member of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. won re-election to a full term in the Senate against GOP nominee Herschel Walker on Tuesday.

His victory in the Georgia runoff now gives Democrats a 51-49 majority in the Senate.

“After a hard-fought campaign — or should I say campaigns — it is my honor to utter the four most powerful words ever spoken in a democracy: The people have spoken,” Warnock stated.

Warnock, a reverend at the historic Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, is a Morehouse College graduate and a Fall 1993 initiate of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc.’s Alpha Gamma Lambda Chapter in Harlem.

Alpha Phi Alpha’s international headquarters took to social media to officially celebrate their brother.

Senator Warnock is the third member of Alpha Phi Alpha to be come a US Senator, following Edward Brook who represented Massachusetts from 1967 to 1979 and Roland Burris who represented Illinois from 2009 to 2010.

“I am Georgia, I am example and an iteration of its history,” Warnock stated.
