Herschel Walker rejects support for abortion ban, wields ‘police badge’ in Georgia debate

Republican Senate candidate Herschel Walker, a stubborn anti-abortion politician charged with facilitating and paying for an abortion by his ex-girlfriend in 2009, gave his only debate on Democrat Senator Raphael Warnock on Friday. used to deny previous support for an all-out national abortion. The former college football star and NFL star backed by Donald Trump has been asked about his support for a “complete ban on the national level.” He said the moderator had misunderstood his position. This is a contradictory statement made repeatedly in the campaign trail, including in July Walker said that the non-existence of a national ban was “a problem.” Walker also responded to Warnock’s attacks on past claims of being a law enforcement officer by producing what he said. Warnock said: For one thing, I never pretended to be a cop. And I never threatened to have a shootout with the police,” Walker said, creating the badge. Although Walker was approved by law enforcement, he never became a trained law enforcement officer. Walker swung his badge and the moderator said: Mr. Walker, I need to let you know that you are very familiar with the rules tonight. And you have props that are not allowed. Sir, I have asked you to remove the brace.” Walker didn’t do that right away. Don’t you know the rules very well?” Walker said: “Well, let’s talk about the truth.” Walker’s apparent struggle with the truth surrounding abortion became the subject of midterm elections. On Friday, he said his position was like a Georgia law, a so-called heartbeat law that bans abortions at six weeks before many women even know they are pregnant. The law went into effect this year after the US Supreme Court overturned the right to abortion, and the heated debate over abortion was one of many that highlighted the stark difference between Warnock and Walker. Warnock did not directly claim that Walker paid for the abortion, and the mediators were able to elicit a firm denial. Walker criticized Warnock, a Baptist minister who supports abortion rights: “Why don’t you baptize those babies instead of aborting them?” “God has given us the choice, and I respect women’s right to make decisions,” Warnock said. “I want to arrogantly give politicians more power than God has.” Warnock and his fellow Democrat, Jon Ossoff, won the Senate. Joe Biden won the seat in the special election in January 2021, two months after he defeated Trump by less than 12,000 votes in Georgia. It’s the first time Democrats have won a federal election in a state in 20 years, and Biden’s declining popularity has raised questions about whether Warnock can win again. Face-to-face voting begins Monday. The results will help determine control of the current 50-50 Senate. On stage, Walker argued that Warnock was Biden’s puppet, saying that Warnock was an election about “what he did to you and your family” in an inflationary economy. Warnock said the election is about “who is ready to represent Georgia.” Walker blamed Warnock and Biden for inflation, but he rarely answered questions about what he would do to address it. Walker said the first step is to “return” to energy self-reliance rather than “rely on the enemy.” The United States has never been free from fossil fuel imports, and some have been free from countries like Russia. Republican. Warnock declined to comment on whether Biden should run for re-election in 2024, and Walker strayed from Trump’s thinking by saying that Biden legally won in 2020. But he said he would support Trump if he ran for office in 2024. Both Walker and Warnock said they would accept the election results. Both of them talked about their personal lives. A recent report by the Daily Beast revealed that an abortion receipt and personal check record were released to a woman who said Walker had paid for the abortion. Walker’s wife continued after the woman identified herself as the mother of one of her four children. Walker publicly admitted his three children for the first time since Beast reports, while other reports detail allegations that Walker exaggerated academic achievement, business success and philanthropy, and threatened the life of his ex-wife, with more details than was admitted in 2008. I did. Memory. Warnock hinted at such a story in perhaps his most effective debate move. “We’re going to see our opponent again and again tonight, as we’ve always seen, that the truth is at stake,” Warnock said. Warnock, with whom he is associated with senior pastor Ebenezer Baptist Church, said that Walker tried to “disgrace the name of Martin Luther King’s church.” dissociative personality disorder. Walker said he was “transparent”.[d] If you need help, you want to help, but you don’t need it. I’m doing well. I am ready to lead today.” Walker rejected three common debates in the Georgia campaign. The Savannah debate did not include the liberal Chase Oliver, who did not meet the voting criteria. Warnock will meet Oliver at a Sunday debate sponsored by the Atlanta Press Club. Walker is represented by an empty podium.
