WNBA players are openly campaigning for Rev. Raphael Warnock, who is running against Kelly Loeffler for a seat representing Georgia in the U.S. Senate. The players wearing "Vote Warnock" shirts at games include members of the Atlanta Dream. Chennedy Carter says they are supporting Rev. Warnock because he supports Black Lives Matter. "He supports the league and the movement, and we support him. We're voting for Warnock."

Wonderful.

I hope they actually do vote, but they better not count on getting absentee ballots - in my family 3 of 4 didn't get theirs in time.

Are all the Dream players Georgia residents?

I wish they'd picked a different candidate. There are eight Democrats in the race, if they're locked in to that party, as well as a green candidate and a progressive independent (state representative Valencia Stovall). Almost all of them are preferable to Warnock.

The players want to play. Shouldn’t their voices be heard too?

If concussions aren't enough to keep these guys from playing football (and their fans from demanding they do), why should we expect Covid 19 to be any different?

No one should play tackle football again. No child, no adolescent, no adult. These athletes are killing themselves and fans are cheering them on.

I still don't understand why they settled on Warnock. There are eight Dems in the race plus a left leaning independent, several of whom are better qualified.

I didn't vote Warnock or Loeffler.

I don't live in Georgia so I can't vote in this race. But, in support of the endorsement by the WNBA players, I've donated to Rev. Warnock. I'm hoping he wins on Tuesday and wins the likely runoff in January.
