HELP IS ON THE WAY: Georgia GOP Chair Says Support Will ‘Swing Behind’ Herschel Walker

Georgia GOP chair Davis Shafer says support will “swing behind” Senate candidate Herschel Walker for his runoff election against incumbent Raphael Warnock.

From Newsmax:

On Newsmax‘s “National Report” with Shaun Kraisman, Shafer expressed confidence in the freshman Republican, saying the real difficulty is that “Warnock was the only Democrat incumbent on the ballot” and that “he was elected just two years ago” in a “way that left him relatively untouched during most of the 2020 Senate campaign.”

“A lot of the reasons for the runoff is the fact that Warnock was the strongest of the Democrats that we were running against,” said Shafer.

He said Republican candidates were too busy attacking themselves, allowing Warnock to build up enough strength to lead to the runoff elections. Neither candidate met the 50% threshold required for victory, with Democrats pumping an estimated $7 million into the campaign.

Shafer said this was the fifth U.S. Senate race to be forced into a runoff in Georgia. The first was in 1992 when Republican Paul Coverdell forced Democrat Wyche Fowler into a runoff election, in which Coverdell was victorious.

As to big-name Republican support, Shafer said, “I think that they’ll swing behind Herschel Walker. I think you’ll see that we will assemble the resources that we needed. Herschel was outspent in the general election and still performed very strongly.”
