Nabilah Islam on her confidence in Warnock and the future of Georgia's runoff election

"If they had picked a better candidate, we could have been a little more in trouble"

Nabilah Islam is the first Muslim woman and the youngest woman ever elected to the state Senate in Georgia, after winning her Democratic primary by 77 votes and then surviving the closest state Senate general election contest in the state this year.

In the #pod, the 32-year-old Islam chats about how suburban minority communities have gradually changed Georgia’s political composition, what happened to Stacey Abrams and why Raphael Warnock is the favorite in next week’s runoff election against Herschel Walker.

“I don’t think we have enough inspired Republicans to come back out during a runoff election,” Islam says. “I think that if they had picked a different candidate, instead of Herschel Walker, this might not have been a runoff.”
