UAB v Georgia, Herschel Walker Republican Herschel Walker is leading Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-GA) by two points in the battleground race for U.S. Senate in Georgia, according to a poll released Friday.
The poll, conducted by the left-leaning Data for Progress and published by the Daily Beast, found Walker at 49 percent compared to Warnock’s 47 percent.
The poll had a three percent margin of error, meaning the two candidates are statistically tied despite Walker’s slight edge over Warnock.
Walker, a former University of Georgia football legend and NFL player, breezed past his Republican opponents in his primary in May, signaling the former athlete with small-town roots is well-liked and generates enthusiasm among Republicans in his state.
Amid his challenge to Warnock, however, Walker has come under heightened scrutiny, most notably for the number of children he fathers, his mental health, and domestic disputes dating back to roughly 20 years ago or more.
Walker told the New York Post in a recent statement about his youngest two children — whom the Daily Beast reported on in June as “secret” children — that he has been quiet about them because he “didn’t want them to become political props.”
Additionally, the former athlete has long been forthright about living with a dissociative identity disorder diagnosis, detailing in a 2009 novel its effects on his life and past relationships and his work to overcome the disorder.
Walker, who is endorsed by both former President Donald Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell in his bid for office, is campaigning on messages of unity and addressing inflation, a top priority for average Americans who are strained by increased costs of groceries, gas, housing, and more.Warnock, a longtime pastor who was elected to the Senate in January 2021, is heavily focusing his campaign on healthcare issues while also promoting his legislative […]
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
