Many Republicans and GOP groups are still staying on the side of Herschel Walker for his senate campaign even after many reports came out about the GOP nominee paying for his girlfriend’s abortion in 2009.
On Tuesday both the National Republican Senatorial Committee and the Senate Leadership Fund announced that they would remain on his side and they would continue to help him to win the seat in Georgia which is currently held by Sen. Raphael Warnock (D). They also said that these reports were merely a distraction made by the media because the Democrats are losing Georgia.
Chris Hartline, an NRSC spokesman also reiterated that this attempt was made by the Democrats and their media allies who are seeking to attack Republicans with lies. He added that they are trying to distract with allegations of the past and what is happening in the present. He also noted that Senator Warnock votes in favor of Joe Biden close to 96 percent of the time. Georgia can see the effects of that in the border crisis, inflation, and increased crime rates, this is why they will be voting against the Democrats.
Steven Law, the head of the Senate Leadership Fund, said that the election coming up is about the future of the country, and that “Herschel Walker will make things better” while Warnock is making the situation worse. Everything else is nothing but a distraction.
On Monday night the Daily Beast made a report that after Walker’s girlfriend got pregnant in 2009 he urged her to get an abortion and covered all of the medical expenses for it. The woman also presented the check and receipt for both the abortion clinic and bank deposit.
