Candidates in Georgia’s Runoff Elections

There is a clear contrast between the U.S. Senate candidates profiled below. These runoff elections will likely determine if the U.S. Senate has enough votes to pass meaningful climate, clean energy, and energy affordability policies, or if Congress will be gridlocked and fail to take the actions we need to create a better future. We are providing this information to help you make an informed decision.

Does the candidate prioritize policies to address climate change?

Democrat Raphael Warnock  YES

Raphael Warnock’s campaign website states: “Reverend Warnock believes we must accept  the science, invest in infrastructure, and  combat the climate crisis that is already at our  door. He sees climate change as a moral  issue, which we must act on by ignoring  Washington special interests, and instead  putting effective, common sense policies in  place.” 

In the Senate, Reverend Warnock has:

  • Supported the U.S. rejoining the Paris Climate Agreement
  • Voted to strengthen standards for clean air
  • Passed legislation that is the largest-ever investment in clean energy and climate action


Republican Herschel Walker – NO

Herschel Walker cast doubt on the need to reduce air pollution, saying: “We, in  America, have some of the cleanest air and  cleanest water of anywhere in the world. So what we do is, we gonna put, from the Green New Deal, billions of dollars cleaning  our good air up.” Walker then argued that  “Since we don’t control the air our good air  decided to float over to China’s bad air so when China gets our good air, their bad air  got to move. So it moves over to our good  air space. Then now we got we to clean that back up.”

Does the candidate support policies to advance clean energy?

Democrat Raphael Warnock  YES

As a Senator, Reverend Warnock introduced the Solar Energy Manufacturing for America Act to rapidly boost American solar manufacturing, accelerate the transition to clean energy, and support American energy independence. The bill was passed as part of the Inflation Reduction Act in August of 2022.


Republican Herschel Walker – NO

Walker states on his website that he wants to make America energy independent. He opposed the clean energy investments in the Inflation Reduction Act because in his opinion, too much of the funds were going to trees. In comments that were first reported by the Atlanta Journal Constitution he stated, “Don’t we have enough trees around here?”
