Jordan Johnson, Commissioner for Augusta District 1: “Anyone who wants to represent the people of Georgia should possess the highest amount of character, the highest amount of decency, integrity, and respect for what it means to serve this great state and its people — but unfortunately, Herschel Walker has none of these characteristics.”
Today, Augusta voters held a press conference highlighting how Herschel Walker lacks the character and the competence to be Georgia’s U.S. Senator. Speakers discussed how Walker’s long, damning pattern of lies, scams, and disturbing conduct proves he is not fit to represent Georgians.
With Georgia’s Senate runoff election rapidly approaching — early voting is November 28th 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.
“We’ve got a Senate race that’s been thrust into a runoff…a runoff that is the decision between competence and character, versus incompetence and lack of character. [Walker’s] got a problem with truth-telling. You know, this is the same man who holds up a badge and says that he’s part of law enforcement…we’ve got somebody walking around with a fake badge. We don’t need that,” said Hardie Davis, Mayor of Augusta. “The choice is clear. Georgia, we’ve got to re-elect Reverend Warnock, who has a record of actually supporting workers and doers – bringing down costs, addressing supply chain issues, creating good-paying jobs that sustain Georgia families – instead of just pretending, like Herschel Walker.”
“Georgia deserves a Senator who remains committed to the values that we stand for. And luckily, that’s who Senator Reverend Warnock is,” said Rep. Gloria Frazier. “As the son of an Army veteran, he’s led the fight for Georgia’s veterans and military families in the Senate. My husband is retired military — 23 years. Veterans deserve to be taken care of here in Georgia. [Reverend Warnock] has brought the voices and concerns of our veterans and service members to the forefront and work in the Senate.”
“Herschel Walker is someone who has lied over and over again about every aspect of his record. It would take us all day to sit here and go through every lie that Herschel Walker has told. Not to mention his disturbing conduct that he’s admitted to, that his family has exposed,” said Jordan Johnson, Commissioner for Augusta District 1. “Anyone who wants to represent the people of Georgia should possess the highest amount of character, the highest amount of decency, integrity, and respect for what it means to serve this great state and its people — but unfortunately, Herschel Walker has none of these characteristics. This election is about Georgia — nothing else. We cannot afford six years of Hershcel Walker representing this state. So I want to challenge everyone to make a plan to go and vote as soon as possible. Early voting begins on November 28, and it runs through December 2. If you miss the early voting period, you will be able to vote on December 6. Because everything is at stake in this election.”
