Former President Barack Obama campaigns for US Senator Rev. Raphael Warnock in College Park in October 2022.

Former President Barack Obama will make a return visit to Atlanta to stump for incumbent Senator Rev. Raphael Warnock in Georgia's US Senate.

Obama's visit to Georgia comes as a new poll shows Raphael Warnock with a narrow lead over his GOP opponent, Herschel Walker, according to the AJC.

In the poll, Warnock leads Walker 51 - 47, within the margin of error. Warnock holds a sizeable lead - 15 points - with independent voters and a 24 point advantage over Walker among voters under age 50. Walker leads Warnock among voters over age 50 by nine points.
