Trump’s handpicked candidate has been in Georgia’s U.S. Senate race for nearly three weeks now, and has held just one campaign event: a private fundraiser with high-dollar conservative donors last week. So far, Walker’s campaign has been summed up as “a whole lot of nothing” — and that is exactly what Georgians should expect of the floundering politician.
Almost unbelievably, Walker has held “no public events with Georgia voters,” “only conducted interviews with friendly media,” and skipped a major annual GOP event two weekends ago — frustrating core Republican activists, voters, and operatives.
“Walker’s first and only Georgia event in more than two weeks as a Senate candidate was a private fundraiser with high-dollar donors,” said Dan Gottlieb, spokesman for the Democratic Party of Georgia. “That tells you pretty much everything you need to know about the direction of his political campaign and this chaotic primary: GOP candidates looking out for themselves and their special interests, not actual Georgia voters.”
