Former U.S. President Barack Obama is endorsing several metro Atlanta candidates in the Nov. 3 General Election. It's the second round of endorsements this election season by the 44th U.S. President.

Obama endorsed Representative Lucy McBath, Democratic U.S. Senate nominee Jon Ossoff, and candidate for U.S. Senate Rev. Raphael Warnock.

In a statement Obama said “I’m proud to endorse these outstanding Democratic candidates who will work to get the virus under control, rebuild the economy and the middle class, and protect Americans’ health care and preexisting conditions protections from Republican assault. They’re dedicated to shoring up and strengthening our democracy, a project that’s going to take time and require all of us — but it begins by electing Democrats right now. So give these candidates your vote — and vote early if you can, either by mail or in person.
