Former President Barack Obama will return to Georgia Thursday to fire up voters for U.S. Sen. Raphael Warnock ahead of Georgia's runoff on Tuesday.The visit marks the second time Obama will campaign in the Peach State this election cycle. Less than five weeks ago, thousands of people packed an Atlanta-area auditorium to see the nation's first Black president stump with Warnock and Democratic gubernatorial hopeful Stacey Abrams.Abrams lost to GOP Gov. Brian Kemp in the general election, but the neck-and-neck race between Warnock and Republican Herschel Walker was thrown into a runoff after neither candidate cleared the 50% benchmark needed to win outright.
