Faith leader weighs in on Georgia's Senate runoff

WASHINGTON (AP) — Georgia’s 2022 election season ended dramatically this past week.
That was because of the closely watched Senate runoff that solidified Democratic control of the chamber, and not because of any large-scale problems with voting.
And that's prompting Georgia Republicans to say concerns over a 2021 law that imposed several new restrictions on voting were overblown.
Voting rights and community groups say their grassroots efforts to work around the new restrictions were key to the relatively strong turnout.
But they also say they don’t know how many people might have been deterred from voting due to the new restrictions.
