WASHINGTON D.C. – Today, Somos PAC, a Latina-led organization focused on persuading and mobilizing Latino voters in key battleground states, including Georgia, celebrates the re-election of Senator Raphael Warnock, who ran a campaign focused on fighting to lower prices and creating more economic opportunities for Georgia’s working people, including hardworking Latinos, to build a good life for themselves and their families.
“The wellbeing of Georgia’s economy depends on the wellbeing of working families, including hardworking Latinos,” said Melissa Morales, Founder and President of Somos PAC. “Voters have once again chosen to elect Sen. Raphael Warnock because they know he cares about people like us and will continue to provide hardworking people with the tools and opportunities we need to build a good life for ourselves and our families. This election also proved what we knew all along. Despite a challenging economic and political environment, Latinos will continue to come out for Democrats like Sen. Raphael Warnock. We are incredibly proud of the work we have done and look forward to investing even more in Georgia’s ever growing Latino community.”
Somos PAC, which ran programs that focused on mobilizing Latino voters for Sen. Raphael Warnock during Georgia’s Senate runoff election, spent $454,000 on voter outreach programs. The programs included robust investments in door-to-door canvassing, a bilingual mail program that reached hundreds of thousands of households with over 100,000 pieces of mail and paid Spanish and English-language TV, radio and digital outreach which included ads that ran during World Cup games.
Additionally, its sister organization, Somos Votantes, ran an active non-partisan program educating voters about when, where, and how to vote in the runoff election that included over 223,000 pieces of bilingual mail. Somos Votantes spent an additional $383,000 on Latino voter education efforts in Georgia.
