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 […]
Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our Giving Fuel. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
