GOP Frustrations Boil As Black Rails on Walker: “Man Up, Get Behind A Microphone, Quit Talking Through Spokespeople, And Come Join The United States Senate Race.”

November 30, 2021

Georgia’s GOP Senate primary continues to escalate with Gary Black amassing more in-state support, Walker calling in a new Super PAC to fend off “increasing scrutiny” of his candidacy, and Georgia Republicans sounding off on the Trump-tapped candidate’s turbulent past and refusal to share where he stands on the issues that matter to Georgia.

Here’s the latest on Republicans’ headaches in #GASEN:

  • GOP primary newcomer: “I know [Walker’s] for everything the Democrats are for because he said that.” Josh Clark, the newest member of the crowded Georgia GOP Senate primary, is also digging into the Trump-tapped candidate. “It’s hard to know where he stands on issues,” Clark said in a recent interview. “He’s signing autographs and taking pictures…but at the end of the day, I don’t know that voters are going to vote for a celebrity to protect America….I know he’s for everything the Democrats are for because he said that recently.”
  • “What we’re seeing with the Herschel Walker campaign: no policy, no issues, a lot of consultants who…lose races and make more money.” Last week, 2020 Senate candidate Doug Collins bashed Walker’s campaign for having “no policy, no issues, a lot of consultants,” comparing Walker’s “closed-door” candidacy to that of failed former Senator David Perdue. Collins also noted that Walker’s team is leaning into Trump’s endorsement — “playing every angle” other than getting out on the campaign trail and talking with Georgians.
