Let’s Change The Culture In Washington.

“We need a different kind of leader in the United States Senate. The constant bickering and division has hurt the spirit of America. I’m running to be your voice and deliver real results. This campaign is not about the political class in Washington D.C., it’s about the great people of Georgia. Together, let’s build a movement that puts your interests first.”

– Deborah Jackson

PRESS RELEASE

November 18, 2020
DEBORAH JACKSON, 2nd PLACE DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE IN GEORGIA SPECIAL ELECTION FOR US SENATE, THANKS SUPPORTERS AND URGES THEM TO VOTE IN JAN. 5th SENATE RUNOFF

Deborah Jackson, attorney and former Mayor of Lithonia, thanks the over 323,800 voters who voted for her in the November 3rd special election for the US Senate in Georgia. Jackson, who came in fourth in a field of 22 candidates, got the second most votes for a Democrat behind first place finisher Raphael Warnock, and the second most votes for a woman behind second place finisher Kelly Loeffler even though both outspent her campaign by millions of dollars.

“Our campaign was a genuine grassroots effort that spoke to the needs of ordinary Georgians,” Jackson said. “Those who heard the message were inspired and motivated to be involved. I thank them for their vote of confidence and strongly encourage them to return to the polls on January 5 to elect Rev. Warnock to the Senate so that we can continue the work my campaign focused on.”

Jackson said she is “excited that Georgia went blue for President-Elect Joe Biden and Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris; and that as a state we need to solidify our position by voting in the January 5 runoff for Rev. Warnock and Jon Ossoff.”

“We need these two Democrats in the US Senate to give President-Elect Biden the chance to fix health care; create more opportunities for small businesses and family farms; address systemic racism, criminal justice reform, immigration and education; and provide leadership on the environment. The eyes of the country are on Georgia and we can deliver if we turn out to vote again.”

Jackson is also encouraging the other special election Democratic and Independent candidates to urge their supporters to vote in the runoff election.

Jackson said, “We cannot afford to have a Senator who boasts she is more conservative than Attila the Hun who was actually known for his barbarism and plunder of other peoples; or Senators that focus on their stock portfolios while the people of Georgia lose their jobs, homes and stand in food lines. We need US Senators that will put the basic needs of ordinary Georgians first, at all times.”
