In a campaign ad released on Wednesday, Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-GA) portrayed himself as athletically inferior to his opponent, football legend Herschel Walker, but better-qualified to serve as senator.
Warnock’s ad will appear on television and features the Georgia radical running on a track as he says, “If the race between me and my opponent were out here, I can understand why you might choose him.”
Warnock, who is facing a Senate challenge from Walker, a former University of Georgia football star and Heisman Trophy winner, then appears on a football field in the ad and says, “If it were here, of course!”
“But this campaign is about who’s ready to represent Georgia,” Warnock continues. “And when it comes to that, I’m proud to be leading the fight to cap the cost of insulin, to make sure our military has safe housing, and to stop the big banks from ripping off consumers.”
In response to the ad, Walker spokeswoman Mallory Blount observed in a statement that Warnock had omitted key economic issues from his new pitch.
“Five words you didn’t hear in Warnock’s negative attack ad – inflation, gas prices, baby formula,” Blount said. “Warnock is desperately trying to deflect from the fact that he has voted with Joe Biden 96% of the time — and together they created these problems.”
