Garrison: Primary Voters Care about Values and Ethics

By Jacqueline Isaacs

Rainey Center president and co-founder, Bishop Garrison, appeared on MSNBC recently to discuss the Democratic primary candidates.

Elizabeth Warren, Senator and presidential hopeful, has seen a recent bump in her poll numbers, almost eliminating former Vice President Joe Biden’s lead. Garrison said that it is “absolutely a possibility” that Warren could jump to be the frontrunner.

“Lots of voters are looking to vote more about values and more about ethics,” he added. “They are showing the country, and the world, what our value proposition is, this is what we’re all about.”

He concluded that Democrats aren’t necessarily going to support the person who could beat President Trump by the most, but that they are looking for the person who shows leadership and is “really interested in policy.”
