Where’s Walker? Hint: Still Not Campaigning in Georgia

October 8, 2021

Herschel Walker has been in Georgia’s U.S. Senate race for 45 days, and he still isn’t talking to voters, holding public events, or speaking on the issues that matter most to Georgians. Walker’s strategy to “stay out of sight and severely limit his exposure to voters and the media” and “pattern of staying mum on most key issues” has created a “largely behind closed doors” campaign that is causing frustration among Georgia Republicans. 

  • Walker is going national and dodging Georgians. Over the past 45 days, Herschel Walker has done 19 interviews — and 16 of those were national interviews with right-wing media outlets and conservative hosts. Walker has made a habit of only interviewing with “friendly media outlets” and attending “tightly controlled events” while his campaign tries to keep him away from “voters who may have questions” about his stances and policy positions in Georgia.
