GA Runoff: The Clear Case for Herschel Walker


| NOVEMBER 21, 2022 | 10:55AM EST

On December 6, Georgia voters will choose their next U.S. senator in a runoff between incumbent Democrat Sen. Raphael Warnock and Republican challenger Herschel Walker. For Georgians determined to find someone to stand up to Joe Biden and his party’s radical political agenda, the choice is clear – Herschel Walker.

Unlike the Georgia Senate runoffs two years ago, this year’s runoff contest will not decide control of the Senate. It will only decide which man will control one seat for the next six years. But Georgians concerned about the direction of the country know that makes the contest no less important.

Warnock has been a senator for almost two years. He is responsible for the failings of the current government, because he cast the deciding vote for all the bad things that passed the Senate on a tie vote where Vice President Kamala Harris broke the tie – and there were 26 of those votes, more ties in the Senate in the first two years of a president’s term than at any time previously.

For instance, he was the deciding vote on Biden’s $1.9 trillion “COVID relief” bill and Biden’s $740 billion “Build Back Better” bill, both of which helped fuel the worst inflation in 40 years.

Warnock was given multiple opportunities to break with his Democrat colleagues. He never did. On issue after issue, there he was, voting in lockstep for extreme policies.

He cast the deciding vote for: Biden’s demand for $80 billion so the IRS could hire 87,000 new employees to harass middle-class taxpayers; refusing to ensure that all those new IRS agents would not audit taxpayers with taxable incomes below $400,000; price controls to kill the development of lifesaving drugs; hundreds of billions of dollars in tax hikes on individuals and businesses; Obamacare expansion; defunding border security and the enforcement of immigration laws; making energy more expensive; and funding DHS efforts to carry out “sustainability and environmental programs” rather than more Border Patrol agents to deal with the surge of illegal immigrants at the southern border, among others.

Raphael Warnock voted with Joe Biden 96 percent of the time. He voted to break the Senate when he voted to eliminate the filibuster, which protects the rights of the minority, and he voted to pack the Supreme Court with additional radical left-wing justices.

It is fair to say, based on his voting record, that Raphael Warnock is – and, importantly, would be – a reliable vote for the radical left-wing agenda of the modern Democrat Party.

Herschel Walker offers a stark contrast.

Herschel – those of us who grew up in Georgia don’t need to hear his last name to identify him – acknowledges, “I am not a politician, but I am a warrior for God.” He is willing to stand up and fight against the wokeness that’s infecting our culture and poisoning it, whether it’s a military that’s weakening itself by being “worried about ‘pronouns’ instead of defending our interests,” or what’s happening to our kids in our schools.

On his bus tour, just before the election, Herschel said it best when he said simply: “We gotta get people who have the guts to fight for this country … I’m going to Washington to represent my family, because I’m sick and tired of the crime on the streets, I’m sick and tired of them raising our taxes, I’m sick and tired of the border not being secure, I’m sick and tired of them going after my kids, I’m sick and tired of them mistreating my police.”

Herschel is right. He’s sick and tired, and so are we. We’re sick and tired of a government that thinks it knows better than we do how best to raise our children, how best to invest or save or spend our money, how best to live our lives.

Our Constitution is our guarantee that our government will protect the rights that flow to us from our Creator. Herschel knows that. Warnock, based on his voting record, does not. The choice is clear.
