  1. “If Herschel Walker can’t get up here (to debate), he certainly can’t beat Raphael Warnock in November,”… Only 3% of the voters in GA would have watched that debate. This election will not be won with debates, policies, position statements, and past legislative performance. Low-information voters (the majority) will use race, name recognition, and sound bites to cast their votes. Hopefully, high-information Republican voters will recognize that the only goal is to retake the Senate seat and they will come out and vote for Herschel.

  2. Article seems to be anti-Walker. Herschel made an outstanding acceptance speech and conservatives definitely need to win the Senate seat. Walker will make a great Senator and is clearly the best choice.

  3. I will be voting for Herschel. I have written multiple letters to Warnock about immigration and problems at our southern border. Ossoff at least answers. Warnock not so much! I think Walker will do well and I wish him great success

  4. Unfortunately, name recognition won this primary for Walker. Although he is a successful businessman and has overcome several issues in his life, I thought there were other candidates that would have made stronger candidates. He may overturn Warnock on his name recognition, but I’m not sure how well he will do in Washington due to his failure to even show up for any debates. I am getting rather weary of voting for the lesser of two evils
