American pastor and politician Rev. Raphael Warnock has had a long career as a spiritual leader. In 2020 he opted to run for office, seeking a seat in the U.S. Senate representing Georgia. The race received intense scrutiny following the November 2020 election, when no candidate received at least 50 percent of votes and a runoff election was triggered. Warnock went on to win the runoff election in January 2021.
Raphael G. Warnock was born in Savannah, Georgia, on July 23, 1969. He was the eleventh of 12 children born to Jonathan and Verlene Warnock, who were both Pentecostal ministers. The family patriarch owned and operated a small business. The family lived in a public housing project, Kayton Homes.
