He is a US Senator (R) from Georgia. For now. The race (oooh, "race") is close.
Apparently he's trying to use a little racism to fire up his "base."
The Republican is outwardly confident, but there's urgency in his voice as he tours North Georgia, trying to boost turnout in his predominately white base: "The other folks are voting," he bluntly tells supporters.
(PSSST, I *think* he's talking about the blacks.)
