Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-GA) Receives Failing Grade From American Energy Alliance

WASHINGTON DC (11/1/22) – The American Energy Alliance (AEA), the country’s premier pro-consumer, pro-taxpayer, and free-market energy organization, released its annual Congressional Scorecard last week.  The AEA scorecard scores voting and co-sponsorship decisions on legislation affecting energy and environmental policy, educating voters on how their senators vote and holding members accountable for those decisions.  This year’s Senate scorecard compiles 28 votes and 1 co-sponsorship decision from the full 6-year terms of the Senators up for reelection in 2022.  

Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-GA) received a score of zero percent from the American Energy Alliance. 

The American Energy Scorecard is guided by the following core principles:

  • Promoting affordable, abundant, and reliable energy
  • Expanding economic opportunity and prosperity, particularly for working families and those on fixed incomes
  • Giving Americans, not Washington bureaucrats, the power to make their own energy choices
  • Encouraging private sector innovation and entrepreneurship
  • Advancing market-oriented energy and environment policies
  • Reducing the role of government in energy markets
  • Eliminating the subsidies, mandates, and special interest giveaways that lead to higher energy costs

 AEA President Thomas Pyle issued the following statement: 

“Georgia’s economy depends on reliable and affordable energy.  It is home to the world’s busiest passenger airport and natural gas accounted for 49 percent of the state’s electricity generation in 2020.  Yet time and again, Sen. Warnock has voted to make energy more expensive for Georgia families. Senator Warnock promised to be an independent voice in the Senate, but he voted in lockstep with New York Senator Chuck Schumer to support President Biden’s anti-energy agenda. 

Senator Warnock said he ran for office to make life better for Georgia families, but has consistently voted for policies that make electricity, gasoline, and home heating more expensive for Georgians and make America more dependent on other nations – like China and the Middle East – for our energy. 

Instead of working to provide relief for Peach State residents from high energy and gasoline prices, Sen. Warnock sided with proponents of the Green New Deal. That’s a bad deal for Georgia.”
