Georgia Holds Runoff Election Pitting Sen. Raphael Warnock Against Herschel Walker

HeadlineDec 06, 2022

Georgia voters are casting their final ballots today in a runoff election that pits Democratic incumbent Senator Raphael Warnock against Republican Herschel Walker. Two of Walker’s former romantic partners have accused him of pressuring them to have abortions — even though he’s an avowed abortion opponent who said during the campaign he would ban the procedure, even in cases of rape or incest. Last week, a third former partner accused Herschel Walker of violently attacking her. Senator Warnock spoke from the campaign trail in Atlanta on Monday.

Sen. Raphael Warnock: “Maya Angelou said, 'When someone shows you who they are, believe them.' We don’t believe anything Herschel Walker says, but he’s shown us who he is. He’s certainly not a United States senator.”

Later in the broadcast, we’ll go to Atlanta to speak with Cliff Albright, executive director of Black Voters Matter.
