Since long before the start of the campaign, Republican agents have been combing through Warnock’s past sermons and public statements, looking for anything that might damage his Senate ambitions.

“These ads are misleading and talk about Kelly Loeffler,” said Terrence Clark, a spokesperson for the Warnock campaign. “Some people think that the senator has something to say about herself, but on the contrary, she can only take the lowest of the low-level attacks to save her campaign.”
These attacks didn’t just come from Loeffler. Other Republicans also joined the ranks.
