Georgia Democrats Demand Answers Following AJC Report Juxtaposing Walker’s Private Speeches with Lack of Public Appearances

January 21, 2022

Yesterday, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that Trump-tapped Georgia Senate candidate Herschel Walker has been avoiding Georgians on the campaign trail while continuing to deliver paid speeches behind closed doors — avoiding “telling Georgians his positions while trying to skirt more embarrassing gaffes.”

In response, Congresswoman Nikema Williams, Chair of the Democratic Party of Georgia and successor to Congressman John Lewis, released the following statement:

“Instead of letting Georgia voters hear what he has to say, Herschel Walker is saving his real opinions for the people who pay. Georgians demand he answer their questions: Will he open up his speeches in Georgia to the press? Will he start being honest with the people of Georgia who deserve to know the platform he is running on? Voters shouldn’t have to pay to hear where someone running for office stands on the issues that matter to the people of Georgia. If he can’t be open and honest as a candidate, what kind of Senator would he be?”
