The Rev. Raphael Warnock, the head of the Atlanta church where Martin Luther King, Jr. was a pastor, on Thursday announced his candidacy for the U.S. Senate in Georgia, in which he will presumably run as a Democrat.

“I’ve always thought that my impact doesn’t stop at the church door. That’s actually where it starts,” Warnock said in a video announcing his bid for the seat currently held by Republican Sen. Kelly Loeffler. “I love this country, and I believe that what makes America so great is that we’ve always had a path to make it greater.”

“This is going to be hard work. And it should be. Anybody running for office knows that it’s hard work,” Warnock told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution in an interview. “But I’ve always understood that my service extends far beyond the doors of the church.”

Other prominent Democrats running for the seat include entrepreneur Matt Lieberman, son of former Connecticut Sen. Joe Lieberman, and former U.S. attorney Ed Tarver. They’re running against Loeffler and Rep. Doug Collins, R-Ga., on the Republican side.

"At the start of this election cycle, Republicans believed they could take this state for granted, but not anymore," Helen Kalla, Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee spokeswoman, told CNN. "This expensive, protracted brawl -- already playing out on the front page -- will force unelected mega-donor Senator Loeffler and Trump ally Congressman Collins into a race to the right that reveals just how out-of-touch both are with Georgia voters."
