Georgia Democrats signal brutal ad campaign against Herschel Walker as high-stakes Senate race begins

ATLANTA — Football legend Herschel Walker had just finished cruising to an easy primary win in Georgia’s Senate race Tuesday night when Democrats let him know the easy campaigning is over.

In a hostile welcome to the general election, the Democratic Party of Georgia released a web video featuring a montage of TV news clips and torn-from-the-headlines controversies about Walker’s past and present — from campaign finance issues to his questioning of evolution to exaggerations about his education to questionable health products and a dubious mist he promoted as a Covid cure.

"Georgians deserve a senator who is up for the job," reads the on-screen text. "Herschel Walker has proven he’s not."

Running 1 minute and 18 seconds, the web ad doesn’t even touch the issues of domestic violence that surfaced during the primary.

But Democrats promise those hits are coming as part of a deluge of attack ads to help Sen. Raphael Warnock survive what’s shaping up to be a tough election year for Democrats.

Walker’s campaign and supporters are bracing for it and say they stand ready to unload on Warnock with whatever it takes, a pledge that could make the swing-state contest — which could decide the balance of power in the evenly divided Senate — cost $150 million to $200 million, according to estimates from Democratic and Republican consultants familiar with the race.

The problem I see here is the Dems will go scorched earth while the Reps will go kid gloves.

There is nothing the Marxists hate more than a black conservative.

Why not? The game is rigged and there is no mercy rule. Who doesn’t want to mangle the enemy?

Scorched earth is fun, watching their opponents striving earnestly and pointlessly in an electoral charade is fun.

Sub-text, he’s uppity, he’s got religion, and he doesn’t like being called “boy,” so they substitute it with other BS.

I don’t know if southern preacher Raphael Warnock would want to go all in on evolution either, not openly.

The things listed are fine for raising money against Walker, but if Walker can raise his own money, he can have plenty of fun at Warnock’s expense, while tying Warnock to BIDEN.

The old southern racist Democrats will be going after Walker with a noose. They hate blacks who jump off the RAT plantation.

a true rags to riches story, local football hero, and a patriot.

in a FAIR election, he’d crush all against him.

but we don’t do fair elections anymore. hell, the pretense of a fair election was thrown out the window and nothing happened to those who did it.

Some things will never cease to baffle me; while they'll breathlessly exploit the slightest real, perceived or invented flaw in a conservative candidate, Democrats see no irony whatsoever in supporting characters the like of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. Truly a case of straining at a gnat while swallowing a Kamal.

If they didn't a have a double standard...

and they own the education system and culture ,e.g. movies, tv,music so it is a struggle-conservatives need to not always be so nice-play the race card back on them, e.g. only reason they are attacking Walker is he is black (and conservative)

Fraud is structural in Georgia now. They made sure Kemp won, so more to come in November when Slobrams crushes Kemp: no way Kemp is more popular than Herschel:

I believe the Left feels these midterms and the 2024 election are the last elections they need to steal and win I order to ensure the creation and implementation of the Global Government. They are fighting like there is no tomorrow, there will be blood in the streets if they lose.

IMHO Civil War 2 is happening as we speak, one side is fighting one side is preparing to be a gracious loser.
