Warnock pushes to close Medicaid coverage gap amid tough reelection battle

Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-Ga.) is making a last-ditch effort to add a provision providing health coverage in GOP-led states declining Medicaid expansion to Democrats’ sweeping package headed for a vote in the coming days.


Warnock is making the push as he faces a tough reelection race in November and seeks to highlight an issue that could give him a leg up in the race against Republican Herschel Walker, a former NFL player.
