In New Ad, Warnock Campaign Highlights Walker’s Refusal to Commit to Debates
Atlanta, GA – In a new TV ad from Warnock for Georgia, the campaign highlights Herschel Walker’s continued refusal to commit to debates despite Walker’s previous comments that he would debate Reverend Warnock “any day of the week.” Reverend Warnock has committed to three debates across the state of Georgia in Atlanta, Savannah and Macon.
“I don’t know if Herschel Walker is scared for voters to hear what he has to say, or scared for voters to hear that he’s unprepared to speak on the issues that matter most to the people of Georgia,” said Quentin Fulks, Warnock for Georgia campaign manager. “There’s a clear choice in the race for Senate and we hope Herschel Walker will be true to his word and commit to joining us at three debates.”
