Walker Has What It Takes to Defeat Pro-Abortion Extremist Warnock
Washington, D.C. – Today Susan B. Anthony List’s Candidate Fund PAC announced its endorsement of Herschel Walker (R) for U.S. Senate, representing Georgia. Walker is running against incumbent U.S. Senator Raphael Warnock. Warnock was a lead co-sponsor of legislation that would effectively codify a right to abortion on demand until birth into federal law and nullify pro-life laws across the country.
“Herschel Walker is a pro-life champion who has what it takes to send extremist Sen. Raphael Warnock packing,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “Hardworking, disciplined and no stranger to adversity, Walker is a leader on and off the field whose faith informs his staunch pro-life values. In contrast, Warnock shamefully twists scripture while rubber-stamping abortion on demand until birth, paid for by taxpayers, lethal discrimination against unborn babies with Down syndrome, and even denying medical care to babies who survive abortions. He is even pushing to eliminate commonsense protections for unborn children and mothers that Georgians have worked for years to enact. Warnock has betrayed the most vulnerable among us and is far out of touch with mainstream America let alone Georgia.
“Herschel Walker can deliver the win Georgians need and deserve in this competitive election year. We’re honored to back him as we work tirelessly to take back the U.S. Senate and block the radical Biden-Warnock agenda.”
Walker rose to fame during his collegiate football career at the University of Georgia, where he led the team to the 1980 national championship, earned All-American honors during three consecutive years in both football and track and field, set multiple NCAA and SEC records and won the 1982 Heisman Trophy. He went on to play professional football for 15 years. A gifted athlete, he represented the United States in the 1992 Winter Olympics in bobsledding, is a fifth-degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do, and was a MMA fighter. Building on his athletic legacy, he was appointed by President Trump to the President’s Council on Sports, Fitness and Nutrition.
Following his athletic career, Walker returned to Georgia where he founded and served as CEO of H. Walker Enterprises, LLC and Renaissance Man Food Services, LLC. Walker also served as spokesman for the Universal Health Services’ Patriot Support Program, which seeks to help veterans struggling with mental health. He and his wife Julie live in Atlanta with their dog, Cheerio.
