U.S. Sen.-elect Raphael Warnock says heading to the Senate will not stop him from leading Sunday service at Ebenezer Baptist Church.

“There’s senators who do all kinds of things. John Tester, who’ve I’ve gotten to know from Montana. He’s a good friend. He’s a farmer. He goes back home to Montana, and he farms. He gets on his tractor,” Warnock recently told Closer Look host Rose Scott. “I get in my pulpit, and I preach the gospel.”

After years of leading Ebenezer Baptist, where the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. once preached, the Reverend was recently elected to represent Georgia in the Senate.

Last week, he defeated his opponent, incumbent Senator Kelly Loeffler, with 50.89% of the vote.

On Monday’s edition of Closer Look, Warnock talked about his plans and shared his thoughts on recent attacks on the Capitol by Pro-Trump extremists.
