Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South) on Tuesday missed an opportunity to go into detail about the strengths of GOP Senate candidate Herschel Walker, choosing only to say he would win when asked on Fox News to speak with him. Appear in Jesse Waters PeakInstead, Graham launched a series of attacks against Walker’s opponent, Senator Raphael Warnock (D-GA).
Fill-in host Brian Kilmeade started by mentioning a Emerson College Poll It was released earlier today and shows Walker is two points ahead, which is within the margin of error. Kilmaid then announced that the Trump-endorsed candidate – who falsely claimed to have served in law enforcement – was highly regarded by the police. (Emerson’s survey reported no results from those in the field.)
“When it comes to the police, he has their respect. When it comes to law enforcement in Georgia, he has their respect,” Kilmead claimed, before turning to Graham.
“You’re in South Carolina, near Georgia,” he pointed out to Fox viewers who weren’t familiar with it. “What should people know about Herschel Walker?”
“Number one, he’d be the next senator from Georgia,” Graham replied, “because Warnock was in Biden’s pocket.”
Graham, who did not mention Walker again during his response, then reviewed a laundry list of campaign-style criticisms of the incumbent Democrat.
He voted for every policy Biden wanted him to vote for. He didn’t do a damn thing about securing our broken borders. Graham claimed that it increased inflation rather than trying to reduce it. Then President Joe Biden specifically addressed:
Your policies led to an invasion on our borders [and] Terrorism is on the rise. Inflation has spread, people can no longer pay the bills, crime is on the street. That’s why we’ll do a really good job [in November]. “
Graham avoided telling voters that Walker lied about how many children he had and had a track record of uninformed comments, including questioning evolution by pointing to the existence of apes. Recently, he targeted the Biden administration’s climate bill, saying, “Don’t we have enough trees here?”
