Legendary football running back Herschel Walker, who is currently running for the U.S. Senate in the state of Georgia, recently expressed his disagreement with comments that were made by former President Donald Trump who said recently that Republicans would not vote in the next two elections if “we don’t solve the Presidential Election Fraud of 2020.”
Walker, who was endorsed by Trump, was asked a question about the remarks made by the former president during an interview with Brian Kilmeade on Fox News radio.
“Is that the right message?” Kilmeade asked the former football star. “Don’t vote if things aren’t perfect?”
“That is not the right message,” Walker said in response. “I think everyone’s got to get out and vote. You know, we can’t look at the past. We can’t continue to look at the past. And that’s what I’ve tried to tell people and, you know, President Trump, I’m very honored that he endorsed me because he know I’m the right man for the job.”
“But he also knows Herschel Walker is going to do it Herschel Walker’s way, meaning I’m gonna go out and I’m gonna run for the seat,” he then added. “This is not Donald Trump running for it, it’s Herschel Walker running for it. Because, you know, I’ve done the things that I think I need to do. And I know about this country, and I’m going to go out and fight for this country and fight for the state of Georgia.”
Walker seems like a pretty solid guy. Whether or not his comments about Trump sending the wrong message concerning Republicans coming out to vote in the next two elections will hurt him in his own race is something we’ll have to wait to see.
Trump still has tremendous pull and sway over his extremely large base, which will be essential to have come out and vote if Walker wants to take down his competition.
