Trump backed Walker early in the race, giving his endorsement in September 2021. Walker is a proponent of a MAGA-Republican agenda, according to DC Enquirer. Walker has said he is running out of love for the US and his home state of Georgia.

Warnock has followed the Democrat’s sole midterm strategy, hoping that centering his campaign on abortion will help him retain his Senate seat. However, voters are concerned about crime and the economy. Increasing economic woes, high gas prices, rising mortgage rates, and surging crime are turning voters away from Democrat’s America last policies.
But it seems Georgia is still too conservative to be a good fit for Warnock’s leftist views. In May, Warnock tweeted about his position on abortion, saying,
“As a pro-choice pastor, I’ve always believed that a patient’s room is way too small for a woman, her doctor, and the United States government. I’ll always fight to protect a woman’s right to choose. And that will never change.”

Kimberly Guilfoyle reminded voters that Raphael Warnock votes with unpopular Joe Biden most of the time, 96.4% to be exact, making those upset with skyrocketing crime, open borders, and never-ending inflation more likely to vote for Herschel Walker in the upcoming race.
Tim Ryan votes with Joe Biden 100% of the time.
Raphael Warnock with Joe Biden 96.4% of the time.
Mark Kelly votes with Joe Biden 94.5% of the time.
If you're upset with never-ending inflation, the invasion at our border, and skyrocketing crime, vote America First.
