ICYMI: Valdosta Daily Times Editorial: “Walker Not Ready for Senate”

Editorial: Walker “Has No Grasp Of Public Policy And No Knowledge Of Issues That Matter To The People Of Georgia.” 

Atlanta, GA – On Saturday, an editorial in the Valdosta Daily Times said Herschel Walker is “not ready for [the] Senate” and “has no grasp of public policy and no knowledge of issues that matter to the people of Georgia.” 

The editorial calls his public comments on the campaign trail “an embarrassment to the GOP and the state of Georgia,” noting that each public comment “reveals how little he actually knows about the serious issues facing our nation, including the economy, ongoing health care crisis and foreign policy.”

Valdosta Daily Times — EDITORIAL: Walker not ready for Senate

Valdosta Daily Times Editorial Board – July 30, 2022

Key Points

  • Herschel Walker is simply not ready for prime time. 
  • Perhaps the greatest college football running back of all time and most certainly a Georgia football legend, Walker is not prepared to represent Georgia in the U.S. Senate. He is not a serious candidate. 
  • He has no grasp of public policy and no knowledge of issues that matter to the people of Georgia. 
  • The race for the U.S. Senate must not be a mere popularity contest, and the floor of the Senate is no place to get an education on how legislative government works. 
  • Walker’s team is trying to keep him on message but no matter how hard he tries, he strays off script and reveals how little he actually knows about the serious issues facing our nation, including the economy, ongoing health care crisis and foreign policy. 
  • His recorded comments at private fundraisers, in media interviews and even at public campaign rallies have been an embarrassment to the GOP and the state of Georgia. 
  • Does Georgia really want to be the state represented by a Marjorie Taylor Greene in the House and a Herschel Junior Walker in the Senate? 
  • In many ways, the whole thing has been unfair to Walker because it seems he was made to believe that being a U.S. senator was something he could easily do. 
  • Walker was a gifted athlete. That does not mean he could ever be a gifted, or even a capable, lawmaker. 
  • Walker has yet to debate his opponent, Warnock. 
  • Imagine him debating on the floor of the U.S. Senate. 
  • The GOP had its chance to draft a candidate who could win back the Senate but this time it handed the ball off to the wrong player.
