Herschel Walker Hasn’t Answered Reporters’ Questions Since Start of October

1
Herschel Walker, former NFL star turned Republican nominee for Georgia senator, has not spoken to reporters on the campaign trail in nearly two months, according to reporting from The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

While he has granted interview requests to news agencies that frequently platform right-wing talking points, Walker has refused to speak with media at public events in his campaign to win the runoff election contest against Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-Georgia) — a move that is unusual, as “earned media” is considered a vital part of any political campaign.

According to the Atlanta-based newspaper, Walker has not answered any questions from reporters since the start of October. That trend has continued up to the general election contest earlier this month and through the end of November.

Walker continued to evade reporters’ questions this week. On Monday, a Journal-Constitution reporter asked Walker about former President Donald Trump’s meeting with white nationalist and holocaust denier Nick Fuentes — a relevant question, given that Walker has been endorsed by Trump. Republicans in the state, including Gov. Brian Kemp, have condemned Trump’s action.

Maybe his handlers are trying the tactic of the old saying, "Better to keep your mouth shut and let them think your a fool, than open it and prove it."

Seems Walker isn't actually a resident of Georgia. His listed "residence" belongs to his wife and is rented out, bringing income, but not spending time there. His LEGAL residence is in Texas, where he's also getting tax relief. The guy lies as much as Trump!.

Republicans Deploy The Buddy System To Save Herschel Walker

MACON, Ga. ― When Herschel Walker participates in nationally televised interviews, he’s often joined by one or two Republican senators who get as much ― and occasionally even more ― speaking time as the candidate who’s actually running for the U.S. Senate in Georgia.

Sometimes it seems like Walker can barely get a word in as loquacious GOP senators like Lindsey Graham (S.C.), Ted Cruz (Texas) and Rick Scott (Fla.) dominate the interview, which is almost always conducted by friendly hosts on Fox News, about the latest in the Georgia Senate race, which is facing a Tuesday runoff.

Since October, Walker has appeared on Fox News with help from a GOP senator at least four times. Both Graham and Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) appeared with Walker at a “town hall” hosted by Sean Hannity on Oct. 3. The joint appearances have continued during the runoff stage. Graham appeared alongside him on Nov. 11, and Cruz and Graham flanked him on Nov. 22.

The Hannity appearance demonstrates how the other senators can overshadow Walker. Hannity addressed the first question to Graham, who delivered a minute-long answer that mostly functioned as a pitch for conservative viewers to donate to Walker’s campaign. The second question, with a lengthy lead-up from Hannity, was aimed at Cruz. The Texan spoke for another minute. Hannity then spoke about the importance of Georgia’s Republican governor, Brian Kemp, backing Walker, and finally he asked Walker about its value.

Walker needs handlers worse than TOS. He has had his brain rattled a few to many times playing football. How can one tell when Walker screws up a simple answer? His lips move.
