Georgia is ground zero in the battle for the balance of power in Washington, D.C., as control of the U.S. Senate now hinges on the outcome of the two Senate runoff races in the Peach State. With the Senate majority leadership within his reach, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) recently declared, “Now we take Georgia, and then we change America.” Now left-wing Hollywood celebrities are rallying behind Georgia Senate candidate Raphael Warnock (D) as the candidate faces growing criticism for his relationship with the late Cuban Communist dictator Fidel Castro, whom he eulogized in 2016.

Raphael Warnock is hoping to unseat Republican Sen. Kelly Loeffler during the Georgia runoffs next month. But his campaign has hit turbulence over the Fidel Castro controversy. Warnock eulogized Castro at his church four years ago, calling the tyrant a “complex” man, “kind of like America’s legacy is complex.”

Warnock was also the youth pastor at the Abyssinian Baptist Church in Harlem, New York, when it hosted Castro in 1995. Video footage of the event shows congregation members chanting Castro’s name.

Sen. Loeffler told Breitbart News that her opponent’s apparent sympathies for the Communist dictator expose his “radical, socialist agenda.”

Rushing in to perform what appears to be damage control, Hollywood stars are bolstering Warnock on social media by urging people to vote and donate money. They are also repeating the same party messaging: “The soul of our democracy is at stake.”

Oscar-nominee Mark Ruffalo helped lead the charge, urging his fans to donate to the candidate’s campaign.

Who’s the Boss star Alyssa Milano promoted the meme with the hashtag #Vote Warnock.

Some of the stars, including Will & Grace actress Debra Messing and actor-comedian Kumail Nanjiani, wore “Vote Warnock” t-shirts.

Star Wars actor Mark Hamill tweeted: “Healthcare is at stake. Jobs are at stake. Justice is at stake The very soul of our democracy is at stake.”

Scandal star Kerry Washington and The Hangover and Community star Ken Jeong also repeated the left’s new mantra.

Star Trek star George Takei also amplified the Democrats’ messaging.

Actress Yvette Nicole Brown urged her fans to “donate and amplify” the left’s messaging around Warnock.
