Georgia U.S. Senate candidate and NFL legend Herschel Walker reacted to the Biden administration removing him from the President’s Council on Sports, Fitness & Nutrition by suggesting Democrats are desperate to damage him.
Despite the move by the Biden administration, Walker remains confident that victory is within reach in Georgia.
During an interview on Friday for Newsmax TV’s “Spicer & Co.,” Walker said, “Right now, I’m in a tough race,” he said. “I think they’re trying to help out my opponent, which is OK because I’m going to beat him anyway. It’s sort of like, what’s good for me is not good for thee, and I think all that they’re doing. But it is OK — the bad policies that they’re doing right now. The people are sort of waking up now and know it. This administration is not doing what’s great for the state of Georgia, what’s great for this country. So, I’m OK with it.”
Walker is a serious threat to unseat Senator Raphael Warnock (D-GA), which would be a disaster for Democrats who hold a technical majority in the Senate.
Walker finished by saying, “I’ve advocated for kids my whole life. And first of all, I’m not paid on this. That’s what’s so funny. I was not paid at all. So, I’m going to continue to advocate for kids, but I’m going to continue to go out and win the Senate seat, and maybe I can go out and do even more, and they may not be happy with that as well.”
