Kemp-Warnock Voters Discuss Their Votes For Reverend Warnock and Against Herschel Walker

November 19, 2022

Today, Georgians who voted for Governor Brian Kemp and Reverend Warnock in the general election shared why they cast their ballots for Reverend Warnock and against Herschel Walker – and why they plan on doing so again. 

With Georgia’s Senate runoff election rapidly approaching — early voting begins no later than November 28th in all counties and runs through December 2nd, and Election Day is on December 6th — speakers reminded Georgians why Walker has not earned their vote to represent them in the U.S. Senate and encouraged voters to make their voices heard.

A big factor in my decision at the ballot box was which of these candidates I felt I could trust. When it comes to Herschel Walker, it feels like every week there is another piece of information that comes out, and the lies and accusations continue to pile up. My vote came down to this. If I cannot trust Herschel Walker to tell the truth, why would I trust him to represent me, my family, or my state in the U.S. Senate?” said Blake Briese, a Kemp/Warnock voter from Atlanta. “Too many of our politicians identify with the red team or the blue team, but I believe Reverend Warnock plays for one team and one team only – and that’s Georgia. That is why I chose to re-elect Reverend Warnock to the Senate — a good and decent man, especially compared to his opponent.”

“This year, I cast my ballot for Governor Kemp and Reverend Warnock, and I’m joined here today to remind our friends, our family, and our neighbors, who may not want to speak out, that we have a clear choice — Herschel Walker does not possess the character or the competence to represent us in the U.S. Senate,” said Heidi Moriarty, a Kemp/Warnock voter from Atlanta. “Georgia deserves a Senator who remains committed to the values we stand for. And Warnock’s record, no matter your politics that commitment — from fighting for health care coverage for our families, to fighting to help servicemembers obtain safe, affordable housing, to capping the costs of prescription drugs for our seniors. Meanwhile, Herschel Walker has a long history of disturbing conduct that he’s never taken accountability for — and Georgians deserve to know all of the facts before they make their decision.”
