Terrible Gaffes: Top Reasons Why Herschel Walker Refuses to Debate Reverend Warnock

September 12, 2022

Despite saying that he’d debate Reverend Warnock any time, anywhere, Herschel Walker has continued to insist he will only participate in his preferred debate hosted by Nexstar. It’s a reversal from his previous comments that he would debate Reverend Warnock “any day of the week,” and a disservice to Georgia voters who deserve multiple opportunities to see the clear choice they have in this election.
