Ad Watch: Black Takes Aim at Herschel in Senate Ad



by Tim Darnell | Sep 27, 2021 | Capitol Beat News Service

Two days after Donald Trump and University of Georgia football legend Herschel Walker appeared at a Perry rally, Walker’s Republican opponent donned some ill-fitting football gear for an ad called “On the field.”

“I’m probably not your first choice to compete on a football field,” says Gary Black, who then goes on to highlight his career in public service. “Whatever field the fight is on, I’ll keep scoring and winning for Georgia.”

Black, Georgia’s agriculture commissioner, has picked up more than 50 endorsements from state GOP lawmakers and officials, despite Trump’s endorsement of Walker. 

Herschel Walker appeared at a Donald Trump rally in Perry over the weekend.

“On the Field” is one of three videos Black’s campaign said “will be heavily promoted statewide.”

Georgia has several GOP candidates vying for an opportunity to challenge Democratic incumbent Sen. Raphael Warnock. Besides Walker and Black, the list includes businessman Kelvin King, trial attorney Jared Craig, former Navy SEAL Latham Sadler, and author James Nestor.

  1. You have to win the election to implement your blah-blah-blah promises. Fifty endorsements from establishment Republicans and organizations who don’t comprehend that urban GA voters, many of whom are black, will elect Warnock’s replacement. Herschel should skip running for the primary and direct his campaign against Warnock, Biden, Harris, Pelosi, and Schumer, and the Democrats’ nullification of the Constitution and Bill of Rights, weaponizing federal courts and agencies, destroying the economy and national security, allowing big-tech to invade our personal privacy, and using the media to create divisiveness and chaos to gain more power and control. I’m an old, white, conservative, male and Black’s canned, predictable smear blather makes me yawn.
