Rep.-elect Nikema Williams: on January 5, Georgia will “have our first black senator”


Rep.-Elect Nikema Williams, who will take over John Lewis's seat in Georgia's 5th Congressional District, and Erinn Haines, Editor-at-Large for The 19th, join Ali Velshi to discuss the upcoming Senate runoff elections in Georgia and the power of Black voters. Rep.-elect Nikema Williams says she wants Senators Loeffler and Perdue “to tell me why they’re afraid of more people voting. They understand, they know that its because they’re going to lose on January 5.” Black women “have been front and center in the election and that is certainly true in Georgia,” says Haines.
