Friday on “Spicer & Co.” from Newsmax TV, U.S. Senate candidate from Georgia Herschel Walker suggested the Biden administration was using his call for his resignation from the Sports & Fitness Council to help his opponent, incumbent Senator Raphael Warnock (D-GA).
Walker said he didn’t believe the decision would prevent him from winning.
“Right now I’m in a tough race,” he said. “I think they’re trying to help my opponent, which is good because I’m going to beat him anyway. It’s kind of like, what’s good for me isn’t good for you, and I think about everything they’re doing. But that’s OK – the bad policies they’re doing right now. People are waking up now and know it. This administration isn’t doing what’s right for the world. ‘State of Georgia, which is good for this country. So, I’m okay with that.
Walker said he had not considered legal action against the Biden administration and said that despite claims that his candidacy for the US Senate while serving as a fitness consultant violated the Hatch Act, he was not paid for this position.
“I really didn’t,” he replied. “I have defended children all my life. And first of all, I don’t get paid for this. That’s what’s so funny. I was not paid at all. So, I’m going to keep standing up for the kids, but I’m going to keep going out and winning the Senate seat, and maybe I can go out and do some more, and they might not be happy about that too. ”
