The extended Senate campaign in Georgia between the Democratic incumbent, Raphael Warnock, and his Republican challenger, football legend Herschel Walker, has grown increasingly bitter as their Dec. 6 runoff nears.

"The situation has not changed, the opening of the fuel terminal did not bring a solution to the problem," said Bocchit Edmond in an interview at the Haitian embassy in Washington, adding that gangs continue to expand their territory.
