There is but one race left in the 2022 midterms, and the Democratic Party is pulling out all of the stops in order to bring it home.
In Georgia, a runoff race between incumbent Democratic Senator Raphael Warnock and Republican challenger Herschel Walker is headed toward a runoff after neither candidate managed to garner 50% of the vote in the original November election.
Now, with just a few days before voters head to the polls for the final time, the liberal left is pulling out the big guns in a last-ditch effort to put Warnock over the top.
An impassioned former President Barack Obama urged Georgians to re-elect Sen. Raphael Warnock as he headlined a large rally for the first-term Democratic lawmaker who’s facing off with Republican challenger Herschel Walker in Tuesday’s Senate runoff election.
And Obama repeatedly targeted Walker, questioning his competence to serve in Congress.
The former president charged that Walker, a first time candidate and former college and professional football star, lacked the “confidence or the character, the track record of service, that would justify him representing Georgia in the United States Senate right now.”
And taking aim at some of the controversial comments Walker’s made in recent weeks – including telling supporters that “I don’t want to be a vampire anymore, I want to be a werewolf” – Obama jabbed at Warnock’s opponent, saying “Mr. Walker has been talking about the issues of great importance to the people of Georgia.”
Polling remains incredibly tight in the race, and the candidates combined have spent a whopping $80 million on advertising throughout the course of the contest.
