What Walker’s Early Support & “Deep Financial Ties” to Marjorie Taylor Greene Say About His Candidacy

October 25, 2021

As scrutiny of Herschel Walker’s “heavy on Fox News spots and curated closed-door campaign” continues, attention now turns to the extensive ties between Trump’s handpicked candidate and January 6th insurrection conspirator Marjorie Taylor Greene. Here’s how her early political and financial support have factored in the race and what it says about Walker:

  • Greene quickly endorsed Walker, providing her political support at the start of the campaign. Greene was one of Walker’s earliest endorsers and defended him in the face of concerns about his campaign from Republicans –– including Mitch McConnell, who tried to keep Walker out of the race. She called the stories that came out about Walker’s past “organized opposition research” orchestrated by McConnell to “dirty up” the Trump-tapped candidate.

  • Walker and Greene have both backed impeaching President Biden. Minutes after giving a speech about finding unity at Trump’s Perry rally, Herschel Walker posed for a photo with Marjorie Taylor Greene while holding an “IMPEACH BIDEN” sign, which Greene spent thousands of dollars promoting.

“Herschel Walker is not just accepting political and financial support from divisive politicians like Greene and Trump — he’s embracing their damaging and out-of-step positions instead of focusing on the issues that Georgians care about,” said Dan Gottlieb, spokesman for the Democratic Party of Georgia.
