Herschel Walker made his first appearance as a candidate in Georgia’s U.S. Senate race this week — not with a crowd of Republican voters at a major GOP event open to the public, but instead with a handful of high-dollar conservative donors at a closed-door fundraiser.
“Walker’s very first campaign event in Georgia was a private fundraiser with donors — not everyday Georgians,” said Dan Gottlieb, spokesman for the Democratic Party of Georgia. “That tells you pretty much everything you need to know about the direction of this chaotic primary: the GOP candidates’ priority is looking out for themselves and their special interests, not actual Georgia voters.”
Walker’s decision to make his first campaign event in Georgia a closed-door fundraiser comes amid criticism over skipping last weekend’s annual 8th District GOP Fish Fry — frustrating core Republican activists, voters, and operatives.
