Georgia GOP Senate Primary Heating Up as Black Compiles More In-state Support and Republicans Target Walker

November 17, 2021

Georgia’s GOP Senate primary continues to escalate with Gary Black amassing more in-state support 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:

  • “What we’re seeing with the Herschel Walker campaign: no policy, no issues, a lot of consultants who…lose races and make more money.” Yesterday, 2020 Senate candidate Doug Collins joined conservative radio host John Fredericks in bashing 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. The pair also praised Black as the “biggest sleeper in America,” noting his “huge base” in rural areas, and remarked 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.

“This primary is only getting messier as Republican rivals continue to build support and take aim at Herschel Walker for dodging debates, avoiding issues of substance, and skipping major party events in favor of closed-door fundraisers,” said Dan Gottlieb, spokesman for the Democratic Party of Georgia.
